St. Martinville, LA – A new mugshot photo of YoungBoy Never Broke Again has surfaced online after he was booked into jail in St. Martin Parish on Tuesday (April 13).
According to WAFB-9, no charges have been listed for the Baton Rouge-bred rapper as of yet, but a St. Martin Sheriff’s Office representative revealed he’s being kept in their custody on a hold for the US Marshals Service.
YoungBoy Never Broke Again had an outstanding warrant and was reportedly taken into FBI custody on March 22 after police attempted to stop a vehicle he was in. The chart-topping Top artist apparently tried to flee on foot after pursuit, but a K-9 unit managed to track him down.
In September, YoungBoy and 16 others were arrested on drug and firearm charges while filming a music video in his hometown. Following a vehicle search, law enforcement allegedly found handguns, rifles, drugs, $47,000 in cash, jewelry and a $300,000 check.
“Kentrell is not guilty of any crimes,” his attorney James Manasseh said in a statement at the time. “There’s nothing in the report that indicates that he did anything wrong. They arrested several people and there was no indication that he had any guns or drugs on him at the time of the arrest. I ultimately believe he will be found innocent in all of this.”
Police were later ordered to return YoungBoy’s cash, check and two diamond chains that were confiscated during the arrest.
Court records reportedly show YoungBoy Never Broke Again skipped out on the drug-testing portion of his bond provisions following the September arrest, which his attorney will attempt to have dismissed in April.
Earlier this month, he was shown all smiles wearing an orange jumpsuit while posing for a photo with fellow prison inmates.
