YoungBoy Never Broke Again was reportedly arrested on a federal warrant in Los Angeles on Monday (March 22). According to TMZ, the Baton Rouge native was pulled over, attempted to drive away, took officers on a short pursuit and then tried to flee on foot once the vehicle was stopped.
Sources say Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers were forced to set up a perimeter and employ a K9 unit to help sniff him out. Police allegedly discovered weapons inside YoungBoy’s vehicle, but it’s unclear if they belonged to him.
YoungBoy (real name Kentrell Gaulden) was also one of 16 arrested in a Baton Rouge parking lot on multiple drugs and weapons charges last September. Following a vehicle search, they wound up seizing handguns, rifles, drugs, $47,000 in cash, multiple pieces of jewelry and a $300,000 check made out to the platinum-selling rapper.

Charges included possession of a schedule 1 drug (which can include LSD, marijuana, ecstasy or heroin), distribution/manufacturing of a schedule 2 drug (which can include prescription pain killers such as Vicodin or Oxycontin as well as cocaine or methamphetamine) and distribution/manufacturing of a schedule 4 drug (Xanax or other substances lower in abuse potential).
The 21-year-old father of seven has had several other run-ins with the law over the years. In May 2019, he was involved in a fatal shooting near Trump International Beach Resort in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.
He was arrested following a court hearing after District Judge Bonnie Jackson ruled one of his social media posts involving the incident constituted a probation violation — despite the fact he was the target and not the triggerman. Then in April 2020, YoungBoy was at the center of a violent altercation between Floyd Mayweather’s daughter and one of his child’s mothers.
