YoungBoy Never Broke Again arrested on drug, gun and fraud charges

YoungBoy Never Broke Again – also known as YoungBoy NBA has been arrested on drug, gun and fraud charges in Utah.

The rapper – real name Kentrell Gaulden – was arrested yesterday (April 16) on six charges: pattern of unlawful activity; procuring or attempting to procure drugs; identity fraud, forgery; possession of controlled substances; and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person (Per records from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office). According to the records, no bail has been set yet.

Gaulden has been under house arrest for the past couple of years in Utah as he awaits trial for separate charges of possession of two weapons as a felon. In 2020, the rapper was arrested alongside a group of me in Louisiana and was indicted in March 2021 by a federal grand jury. He spent several months in prison in Louisiana and was then released and put under house arrest in Utah.

Back in 2022, YoungBoy NBA was found not guilty in his California case regarding a federal weapons possession charge.

As reported by Stereogum, the rapper was arrested in LA last March. It’s said that prosecutors in the city had a federal warrant out for Gaulden’s arrest – stemming from his September 2020 charges in Louisiana – and although he was cooperative with them at first, he eventually led the authorities on a “high-speed chase” in his Mercedes Maybach. When he was finally apprehended, prosecutors reportedly found Gaulden in possession of an FNX .45 caliber pistol, ammunition, cash and jewellery.

Gaulden’s lawyers reportedly claimed that the rapper attempted to evade the authorities out of panic, unbeknownst to him that there was a federal warrant out for his arrest. It’s also said that Gaulden’s lawyers argued he was unaware about the pistol being in his car, and that prosecutors were unable to find his fingerprints on it.

Last year, the rapper released his sixth studio LP ‘Don’t Try This At Home’.
