NBA Youngboy Among 16 Arrested On Drug & Firearm Charges In Louisiana
Rapper NBA Youngboy (real name Kentrell Gaulden) was allegedly arrested in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana while shooting a video, on Monday Sept. 28th.
He was booked by the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office on 3 different drug charges; possession of schedule I drugs, manufacturing/distributing a schedule II drug, and manufacturing/distributing schedule IV drugs.
Reportedly, a total of 16 people were arrested on similar charges.
Here is a bystander’s view of the alleged arrest:
The rapper was released from jail last August after a shooting at Rolling Loud Miami festival in May. He and his team were outside of the Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach when a gunman approached them in a black Cadillac Escalade and started shooting. Reps for NBA Youngboy said they’re convinced he was the target and that they acted in self-defense when they began shooting back. Unfortunately, his then girlfriend, Kay Marie, was injured and rushed to the hospital, and a 43-year-old man who was nearby was struck and killed when a bullet hit his car that was across the street.
He was relesaed and put on house arrest. He also had to wear a GPS ankle monitor and couldn’t perform.
