YoungBoy never broke again is reportedly held by the FBI after being found by the Los Angeles Police Department and the agency’s K-9 unit.
According to a report by TMZ On Monday evening (March 22), YoungBoy, born Kentrell Gaulden, was taken into federal custody after LAPD and authorities attempted to stop a vehicle in which the rhymer was found from Baton Rouge, Louisiana due to a Federal mandate pending for his arrest. However, the attempt to apprehend the 21-year-old artist was initially unsuccessful as a short chase ensued. After the NBA YoungBoy car was pulled over, police say he got out and ran.
According to law enforcement sources, officials set up a perimeter and used a K-9 dog to help locate the Mountain peak rhyme, what they have done successfully.
Police also reportedly found a gun in the car, but it’s unclear if it belongs to NBA YoungBoy.
While it is not clear what the federal tenure of YoungBoy, the local New Orleans newspaper, is Avocado, reported last month that the rapper was under federal investigation following his arrest in his hometown last year on multiple drug costs. The September 2020 arrest took place during the NBA video shoot, in an abandoned lot, which ended suddenly after police arrived following a call to arms posted on the video set. .
In addition to NBA YoungBoy, 15 others were arrested at the time. These people, including rapper Billboard-Charting, have been described by law enforcement officials as members of the Never Broke Again and Bottom Boy Guerillas street gangs. At the scene, police reportedly searched vehicles near the filming of the video clip and found three grams of marijuana, a dose of hydrocodone in a transparent bag, 14 guns and digital scales.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again was charged with possession of Schedule 1 drugs, distribution / manufacture of Schedule 2 drugs, and distribution / manufacture of Schedule 4 drugs. However, his bail documents indicated that the the only charge to be considered was possession of Schedule 1 drugs. No charges related to firearms had been entered at the time.
