NBA Youngboy was arrested yesterday, right before his concert yesterday in Tallahassee, Florida.
According to Tallahassee Democrat, the rapper whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested by the Leon County Sherriff’s Office on an out-of-state fugitive from justice charge for kidnapping and weapons charges. And hours before this, this rapper was caught on camera body-slamming his girlfriend.
From the clip obtained by TMZ, YoungBoy is seen throwing his girlfriend Jania down on the floor of a hotel hallway in Georgia, dragging and manhandling her, while she screams. The commotion was heard by a hotel guest who quickly alerted the front desk, who then called the police. However, the couple left led the hotel before the police arrived, but the evidence found in their room(which includes blood) room was enough to issue a warrant.

TMZ adds that the rapper was arrested hours later after the police spotted his tour bus. Now, he is being held on kidnapping and weapons charges.
However, Jania has taken to her social media to post a video in which she claimed that the commotion was only a ‘playful’ one.
See the video below.
Youngboy will be arraigned in court on Monday morning.
