After being arrested on Saturday (Feb. 24) in Tallahassee, FL. for charges of allegedly committing assault and kidnapping, YoungBoy Never Broke Again was transferred to Ware County Jail in Georgia and is being held without bail, reports TMZ.
Billboard obtained county records that can confirm YoungBoy’s custody and charges, which include two felonies, notably kidnapping and aggravated assault (Family violence). On Saturday, YoungBoy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was arrested after allegedly attacking his girlfriend, Jania Jackson. Hotel footage of the alleged altercation surfaced online and reportedly shows the 18-year-old rapper throwing Jackson down to the ground.
After news of his arrest found its way online, Jackson spoke out on the alleged incident and characterized their tussle as “just playing around.” In regards to the subject of kidnapping, Jackson scoffed at the allegation and said, “Kidnapped? Fuck no. Has he ever put his hands on me? Fuck no.”
Billboard reached to Ware County Sheriff’s office for comment, as well as YoungBoy’s representatives.
