NBA YoungBoy is no stranger to brushes with the law and once again, an incident in Atlanta has led to his and a female companion’s arrest. The Louisiana rapper was charged with marijuana possession and two other misdemeanor charges.
Law enforcement sources tell us the Louisiana-born MC is currently locked up at the Atlanta City Detention Center, where he’s been booked for three misdemeanors — possession of weed (less than an ounce), use of fighting words and physical obstruction with another.
His bond hasn’t been set yet, but he’s got a court hearing early Tuesday morning. Details on the arrest are unclear, but an eyewitness tells us he was busted along with a female companion.
You’ll recall … YB was indicted last year for allegedly beating the hell out of his then-girlfriend, and one of the charges he faced was felony kidnapping.
In an update to the story, TMZ highlighted that the female companion’s name was Starr Thigpen. The pair were in a hotel room that was supposed to be empty and Thigpen allegedly struck one of the housekeeping crew.
