Baltimore rapper Young Moose (real name Kevron Evans) has been sitting in jail without bail since his arrest on drug charges days before he was schedule to perform at what is now Royal Farms Arena in August.According to the Baltimore Sun, Circuit Judge John Addison Howard deemed Evans’s confinement “cruel and unusual” and set a $50,000 bail.

Evans’s lawyer argued that the detective who led the investigation has a vendetta against the rapper. The particulars of Evans’s arrest — stemming from a raid of his home that turned up 160 gel caps of heroin — appear to have been engineered to keep him from performing. Despite conducting the raid in July, police waited until just before the concert to arrest him. When Evans posted the $250,000 bond, police directly contacted his probation agent and held him on a probation violation.
