Judge Orders NBA Youngboy’s Arrest, Miami Shooting Violated Probation
NBA Youngboy is facing more legal trouble. District Judge Bonnie Jackson has reportedly ordered for the Baton Rouge rapper to be arrested, as his recent Rolling Loud Music Festival shooting incident violated his probation. Last weekend, NBA Youngboy (real name, Kentrell DeSean Gaulden) performed at the festival in Miami, and shortly thereafter, was targeted by shooters in a Cadillac Escalade. Legally armed members of his entourage fired back at the shooters, with one of those bullets killed an innocent bystander. Youngboy wasn’t harmed, but his girlfriend, Kay Marie, was shot in the shoulder.
Prior to the incident, footage leaked on social media of the 19-year-old rapper doing, what Judge Jackson calls,
“talking trash and smack.”
This violates the three-year-probation sentence he was given in 2017, which details that he’s prohibited from using social media. Since then, he has been arrested twice, with his last arrest stemming from a violent incident with a housekeeper at an Atlanta hotel.
NBA Young Boy was given probation in place of a suspended 10-year prison sentence, which could very well be reversed due to this probation violation.
