NBA YoungBoy is still serving his time, but in good spirits
A new photo of a smiling NBA Youngboy in jail has surfaced. Appearing to be in high spirits, the rapper is posted with three other inmates.
The photo comes after Youngboy's bond was revoked by a Louisiana judge on April 1. The 21-year old artist was granted a $540 000 bond in the Central District of California, but it was up to a Louisiana judge to approve the bond. He will remain in custody until his next trial but a bond may be granted if evidence to be obtained in future favors him.

The judge said that the ruling was based on the Baton Rouge artist's past criminal record and his attempt to run during his arrest in California. “No condition or combination of conditions will reasonably assure the safety of the community if the Defendant is allowed bond before trial. Defendant's criminal history includes violent crimes and the crime for which Defendant has been indicted involved possession of a firearm. Defendant attempted to flee during his arrest, which is indicative of a lack of respect for law enforcement and the law. Defendant also has a history of drug use,” stated the Louisiana judge.
YB was arrested in California in March after a brief persuasion by the Feds. The arrest stemmed from a September 2020 incident in Baton Rouge where the artist was arrested among 15 other people during a music video shoot. He was reportedly found with two firearms during the arrest.
