Rapper NBA YoungBoy is in legal trouble again. The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native was arrested in Tallahassee, Fla.,on Saturday (Feb. 24). TMZ reports that police took NBA YoungBoy into custody on an outstanding felony warrant that included kidnapping.

Police sources told the website that cops stopped YoungBoy's tour bus before he was scheduled to perform at The Moon nightclub in Tallahassee.
