NBA YoungBoy is in FBI custody today after federal agencies, with assistance from the Los Angeles Police Department, made an arrest near the Los Angeles home where he was reportedly held following a persecution.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said YoungBoy’s arrest is linked to an arrest warrant outside the district.
Eimiller tells The Shade Room that everything went down in the Tarzana area of LA around 1 p.m. on Monday, where authorities pulled out a traffic disruption for the vehicle YoungBoy was driving.
After a brief chase, NBA YoungBoy escaped on foot and went into hiding for a few hours, she says. According to TMZ, authorities used a K-9 to spy on him.
He was found without incident and taken into custody. He is currently being held overnight and is expected to perform for the first time on Tuesday morning.
Now YoungBoy was among 15 others jailed during a video shoot in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in September 2020. It is unclear whether his most recent arrest was related to this incident.
The details of YoungBoy’s federal order are minimal as the indictment has been sealed, according to Eimiller.
As soon as news of the NBA YoungBoy’s arrest surfaced on social media, some of his children’s mothers, as well as his girlfriend Jazlyn Mychelle, expressed their solidarity with YB.
Yaya Mayweather, who recently gave birth to son Kentrell Jr., shared her heartbreak over YoungBoy’s arrest on her Instagram story.
“My day was completely ruined,” she said, followed by a picture of YB with the hashtag “#FreeKentrell”.
Jazlyn tweeted a heartbroken emoji while his ex Jania, who also shares a son with him, tweeted, “Only 7 little people really matter right now, Idgaf about the rest.”
As NBA YoungBoy is expected to perform for the first time on Tuesday, we will keep you informed of any updates on this case.
