After being held in a Dubai prison for 2 months DJ Esco is now a free man. According to the website 7 Days In Dubai, charges against Future’s tour DJ have been dropped and he has been freed to board his Delta Airlines flight home at 11pm tonight.
Esco was scheduled to appear alongside Future at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix concerts on November 18th but was caught with 18 grams marijuana at the Dubai International Airport after arriving from Amsterdam.
“He admitted that he consumed marijuana before coming to Dubai. He didn’t have any criminal intention and was not aware that marijuana is illegal in the UAE. It was a mistake,” Defense lawyer Mohammad Al Redha. Esco was drug tested and they did find marijuana in his system, but consumption charges were dropped due to the fact he did not do the drugs in UAE. Also no possession charges were pursued.
Mohammad Al Redha says Esco has been in great spirits the entire time of his incarceration. “He is a charming and polite person – even his [prison] wardens loved his character. He will be back home soon.”
