Just about three weeks after YoungBoy Never Broke Again was arrested on charges of kidnapping and aggravated assault, the rapper was released Thursday (Mar. 15) after posting bail.

Initially reported by TMZ, bail was set at $75,000. The 18-year-old was extradited in Ware County, Georgia on a fugitive warrant February 25 after a hotel altercation involving his girlfriend Jania Jackson. Hotel guests called the police but the couple fled. YoungBoy was soon arrested in Tallahassee, Florida where he was scheduled to perform at The Moon nightclub.

 YoungBoy was initially held without bail, but the amount was set following a court hearing on Monday.
