NBA YoungBoy Denied Bond Again As Prosecutors Reference His Recent In-Jail Fight & ‘Disturbing’ Behavior
It looks like NBA YoungBoy may remain in jail for a while longer!
Back in March, NBA YoungBoy–also known as YoungBoy Never Broke Again–was arrested in L.A. for evading authorities and possessing two firearms. Since then, the rapper–who just turned 22 while behind bars–has had his bond revoked or denied twice.
This past Monday (Oct. 18th), NBA YoungBoy (real name Kentrell Gaulden) had a court hearing to address a post-release plan. Specifically, the “Slime Belief” rapper and his legal team attempted to persuade the courts to allow him to get out on bond and relocate to Northern Utah, where he’d construct an in-home recording studio and supposedly remain out of trouble. However, prosecutors shot down these plans–referencing NBA YoungBoy‘s “disturbing” behavior as a reason to keep him locked up.
Specifically, the prosecution argued that NBA YoungBoy cannot stay out of trouble and brought up a recent fight he was allegedly involved in behind bars. While the exact details of the altercation are unknown, prosecutors suggested that NBA YoungBoy getting into fights despite jailhouse security is a sign that he’ll get into trouble out in Utah.
NBA YoungBoy remains incarcerated at St. Martin Parish Jail in St. Martinville, Louisiana. He does not currently have a listed release date on the jailhouse’s web roster.
This news comes shortly after reports that the rapper called on President Joe Biden to release him. A change.org petition was launched in an effort to free NBA YoungBoy, and it has garnered over 155,000 signatures so far.
