Latasha Kendrick, Yak Gotti's mother, has been arrested this week after attempting to sneak rolling papers into the Fulton County courtroom, according to WSB-TV.
Kendrick, 51, was taken into custody with one count of criminal attempt to commit a misdemeanor after allegedly smuggling papers and tobacco products into the courtroom where her son is on trial.
Her son is one of 14 defendants named in a massive RICO indictment that also names Young Thug and other Young Stoner Life Records artists. Gotti has been charged with various crimes, including the 2015 murder of Donovan "Nut" Thomas Jr.
On Tuesday, Jan. 17, Kendrick handed up a bag of clothes for her son in court, which contained a sealed package, according to officials. According to Gotti's attorney, Douglas Weinstein, Nyesha Cox, the rapper's child's mother, alerted a deputy about the package.
When the clothing bag was checked, it was revealed that the envelope contained wrapping sheets and other tobacco goods. She denied knowing anything about the package and said Cox packed the bag. Cox was detained shortly afterwards, and an arrest warrant was filed for her.
