Rapper NBA YoungBoy was arrested Saturday night in Tallahassee, Florida for a outstanding felony warrant.
YoungBoy had a scheduled appearance at The Moon nightclub in Tallahassee, but there’s no evidence he ever showed.
Various sources tell us cops came in contact with YoungBoy on his tour bus and when they ran the rapper’s record and discovered he was a fugitive from Georgia for allegedly committing assault, weapons violations and kidnapping.
According to records from the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee, Florida, Kentrell Gaulden, aka NBA YoungBoy, was arrested Sunday, February 25 for a warrant that was issued in Waycross, Georgia.
On August 22, 2017, Youngboy was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault with a firearm. He was originally charged with attempted first-degree murder.
Judge Bonnie Jackson suspended his sentence and placed him on active supervised probation for three years.
NBA Young Boy was only 17-years-old at the time of his arrest for his part in a drive-by shooting that happened on November 2, 2016. He was arrested in Austin, TX at a concert and was brought back to Louisiana.
Young Boy’s latest arrest could potentially be a violation of the terms of his probation, which was transferred to Orleans Parish.
The terms of Young Boy’s probation include remaining alcohol and drug free, serving 250 hours of court approved community service work or an anti-violence production, and he has to refrain from criminal conduct.
Gaulden’s first mixtape, “Life Before Fame,” was released in 2015. He is best known for his songs “Untouchable,” “No Smoke,” “Solar Eclipse” and “Outside Today” which peaked at #95, #61 and #39 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
