NBA Youngboy Allegedly Caught Using Urine Device to Pass Drug Test, Later Tested Positive For THC
NBA Youngboy is testing the limits of his current legal situation.
NBA Youngboy has been accused of using a urine device to pass a drug test, according to documents from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana.
The Louisiana rapper, also known as YoungBoy Never Broke Again, was ordered by his probation officer in Utah to do a drug screening on July 26.
The testing is being done due to his lawyers requesting his release from house arrest after being acquitted of felony gun possession in California last month. NBA Youngboy is on house arrest in Utah as he is in the middle of a gun case in Baton Rouge, LA.
The documents, obtained by XXL Magazine, detail the many excuses Youngboy had for why he couldn’t take a drug test. Among the excuses were not renewing his driver’s license, and not being able to find a ride.
When the day of the drug test came, NBA Youngboy called his probation officer and said that his driver got into an accident and his driver’s license was expired. He eventually got an Uber to the office to take the test, and that is when he was caught allegedly “faking his urine sample with a device.”
“During the screening, the observing officer noticed a device was being used to allow the urine into the testing cup,” said Ronald C. Gathe, Jr. of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana. He added:
“When questioned, the defendant pulled up his pants quickly. The defendant denied using a device and would not comply with the officers attempts to view the device. The defendant was informed that the test would be negated, and a second sample would be required.”
After getting caught, he was allowed to get water, then was told to “remain in the lobby and not leave for any reason.”
However, NBA Youngboy reportedly left without permission before he was able to provide a second sample. The next day, he came back and his urine sample tested positive for THC, violating his probation. He also admitting to vaping.
It is unclear how the violation will affect his case, but the U.S Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana wants the judge to give the rapper more harsh restrictions, including more drug testing and drug treatment. They also want him to appear in court to face consequences for violating the terms of his pretrial release.
