NBA YoungBoy was arrested by Florida police after finding out the rapper was a wanted man in Georgia for allegedly committing assault and kidnapping.
Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again (real name: Kentrell DeSean Gaulden) was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida on an outstanding felony warrant, TMZ reported and Leon County Sheriff’s Office records confirmed. Law enforcement sources told the website that after police came into contact with the 18-year-old (it’s unclear why) they ran his record. That’s when officials discovered the rapper was a fugitive from Georgia for allegedly committing assault, weapons violations and kidnapping. What!?

The teen, who’s also known as NBA YoungBoy, was scheduled to perform a sold-out concert at Tallahassee’s Moon nightclub on Feb. 24, but the show was cancelled. “Our understanding is he was arrested by the US Marshall’s on an outstanding warrant from Georgia, at approximately 1am,” a representative for the Moon said in a statement, according to Pitchfork.“He was heading over to The Moon for his scheduled 1:30am performance.” He’s scheduled to appear in court on Monday, Feb. 26.
This isn’t YoungBoy’s first run-in with the law. He was once arrested for a case connected to a drive-by shooting in Baton Rouge, LA that took place on Nov. 2, 2016. In Aug. 2017, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison after her pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault with a firearm. But then Judge Bonnie Jackson suspended his sentence and placed him on active supervised probation for three years. This new arrest could potentially be a violation of that probation.
