Federal agents in Los Angeles apprehended rapper NBA YoungBoy on Monday.
Though the story is still developing, sources claim that the Los Angeles police department tried to pull over the 21-year-old rapper on an outstanding federal warrant. However, YoungBoy allegedly began to flee. Police pursued his vehicle before it came to a stop, and the Baton Rouge star fled on foot. Inside the car, authorities located a gun, though it is unclear who it belonged to.
Police established a perimeter around the area and used a K-9 to locate the rapper, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden. He was ultimately arrested around 1:00 a.m.
The FBI has been investigating YoungBoy for months now, stemming from a September 2020 music video shoot that led to his arrests and 15 others on various drug and weapons charges.
State District Judge Tiffany Foxworth ruled that the Baton Rouge Police Department had to return two diamond necklaces, a diamond ring and over $40,000 in cash, and a $300,000 cashier's check that had been confiscated from YoungBoy during the September incident.
