Georgia Southern searches for way to break contract with Migos after arrest
STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - WTOC is looking deeper into the arrests of rap group members who performed at Georgia Southern University on Saturday night.
The show contract had plenty of stipulations, but was there anything that regulated the group's behavior? Police arrested them for drugs and guns in their van parked outside the arena.
Georgia Southern may find it easier said than done to break the contract with Migos, whose members were arrested backstage Saturday night. Nowhere in the 12 page contract does it prohibit bringing drugs or guns with them.
The agreement called for the student's University Programming Board to pay $30,000 to Migos and $3,000 to promoter Big House Collective. It includes stipulations where the university or the group could cancel before the show, but it doesn't specifically address what happened when the group left the stage and police arrested them for what investigators say they found in the group's van.
Two possible deal breakers could be the start time, which was written in the contract as 7 p.m., and the show's length, written for 45 minutes. The group arrived nearly three hours after the contracted start time, and the group stepped off the stage in half that time.
The university said their legal team is reviewing the contract to see if they can break it.
Two members of the group left jail on bond. A third was already on probation. He'll stay in jail at least until a bond hearing in Superior Court.
