Baton Rouge, LA – While NBA YoungBoy remains under strict house arrest conditions in snowy Layton, Utah, his legal team is looking to convince a judge that the search warrant used was a “blank check” and faulty in their pursuit of charging him in his March 2021 felony firearms case.
YoungBoy’s attorneys argued that police went to extensive measures to acquire hours of personal footage found on cameras and the seized Macbook laptop of YoungBoy’s personal photographer Marvin Ramsey which helped police connect YB to a pair of weapons and arrest him in September 2020
“Officers used this vague warrant as a blank check that they clearly did not believe limited their discretion in any way to search what they wanted, when they wanted,” the filing obtained by Rolling State allegedly states.

“If the judge had meant to authorize a search of the items after they were seized, she would not have ordered the items to be held pending further orders.”
A Louisiana federal judge is still yet to make a ruling on YB’s attorney’s claims. He was released prison on October 26 and will remain in Utah on house arrest for the rest of his case.
NBA YoungBoy is still managing to feed his rabid fan base with music in the meantime. After connecting with DaBaby earlier this week for “Bestie/Hit,” the Baton Rouge native will be releasing his Colors mixtape on Friday (January 14).
