NBA Youngboy Arrested Mugshot

Rapper NBA YoungBoy, known for his chart-topping hits and tumultuous legal history, has once again made headlines. The 24-year-old artist, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was serving house arrest in Utah when he was arrested on several charges. Jail records from the Cache County Sheriff's Office provided the detail with a long list of allegations under the rapper's name.

Notably, no bail has been set for YoungBoy at this time.

According to the jail records, YoungBoy faces a slew of charges, including but not limited to:

  • Pattern of unlawful activity

  • Procuring or attempting to procure drugs/prescriptions

  • Identity fraud

  • Forgery

  • Possession of other controlled substances

  • Possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person

It is yet another chapter in YoungBoy's lengthy legal saga, which has seen him involve himself in a lot of legal troubles over the years.

YoungBoy's Legal Troubles and Past Incidents

YoungBoy's legal woes are no secret to those familiar with his career.

This year, he has been indicted in a case that reportedly had two guns from September 2020 in a Baton Rouge incident. This incident occurred amid an arrest that nabbed 16 others on drug and firearm counts while they were filming a music video in an abandoned lot. Additionally, his federal gun charges were temporarily put on hold in March pending a Second Amendment ruling.

Occasionally, YoungBoy finds himself winning in court amid his legal battles. In July 2022, he was cleared of knowledge of a weapon, briefly providing a break from his latest legal woes in relation to a recent case of arrest in California.

YB's House Arrest and Creative Output

YoungBoy's latest arrest comes as he was serving house arrest in Utah, where his every move was being watched by a security firm staffed with military veterans. All the time at home, YoungBoy has proven to be one of the most prolific artists currently in rap. Since then, he has produced an incredible thirteen albums that prove his heart is in his work, no matter whatever obstacles may cross his path.

Last December, a federal judge allowed YoungBoy to receive treatments for mental health but rejected his pleas to be allowed more time in a recording studio. The judge's ruling came amid arguments from YoungBoy's defense team claiming that the rapper's lockdown status was harming his record sales. Conclusion The latest arrest for drug and fraud charges is part of a series of run-ins with the law for the up-and-coming rapper, NBA YoungBoy. Now, with another legal issue facing him, fans and observers alike will have to wait and see what's next for the street-raised and -tempered hip hop icon. That notwithstanding, YoungBoy faces one and keeps going on with his life stronger and much more creative, which keeps his fans moving on the go and, in return, secures his place in the music industry.
