18-Year-Old Arrested For Allegedly Threatening To Kill Fulton Country Sheriff Over Rapper Young Thug and YSL Arrests



An 18-year-old man is facing nearly two dozen felony charges for threatening to kill the Fulton County sheriff over the arrest of rapper Young Thug and other members of the YSL organization.


Quartavius Mender was arrested on Thursday, May 26, and faces 23 felony counts of terroristic threats after he was accused of making death threats against Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat, deputies wrote in a news release.


According to investigators, Mender wrote multiple death threats in comments on Instagram posts of Sheriff Pat Labat, the Gwinnett County Sheriff, the Fulton Clerk, and more after the arrest of Atlanta rapper Young Thug, Gunna, and 26 other associates on racketeering charges.


In the comments, officials say Mender wrote he was going to kill Sheriff Patrick Labat, his wife Jackie Labat, and Atlanta Public Schools Police Chief Ronald Applin unless one of the high-profile defendants in the case was released from custody.


“We take these kinds of brazen threats seriously,” Sheriff Labat said in a statement. “Social media cyberbullying, and hiding behind a keyboard will not protect someone from criminal prosecution. Our investigators are diligent in seeking individuals who mean to do harm to anybody, and I am grateful to them for ensuring the safety of myself, my wife, and all citizens of Fulton County.”
