NBA YoungBoy Arrested & Held in FBI Custody over Outstanding Federal Warrant
YoungBoy Never Broke Again, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, has been arrested and is being held in FBI custody after the LAPD pulled him over for avoiding an outstanding federal warrant.
TMZ was the first to report the news after the Baton Rouge, Louisiana native was pulled over on Monday, March 22, 2021.
According to the reports, NBA YoungBoy’s vehicle was spotted by the FBI and LAPD officers. They tried to get him to pull over because he had an outstanding federal warrant, eventually resulting in a short pursuit.
When the car was finally pulled over by LA’s finest, the young rapper allegedly attempted to flee the scene on foot.
That led the officers to set up a perimeter to prevent the ‘Bandit’ singer from getting out of their sight and simultaneously deployed a K-9 dog unit to find him. The officers were successful in getting their hands on the rapper.
“BTW, we’re told the police dog didn’t bite him -- but did sniff him out,” TMZ’s report read.
And when the cops frisked the 21-year-old rapper and his possessions, they found a firearm in his vehicle; however, it was unclear if it belonged to him.
The charges were made against YoungBoy after a large group of people was found brandishing weapons while filming a music video. The event led cops to cuff 16 people that day, including YoungBoy.
Then, a representative had brought an official statement claiming that none of the drugs or weapons found at the scene belonged to YoungBoy. Hence, no formal charges were made at the time of his arrest, and he was released on a $75,000 bond.
