NBA YoungBoy Threatens to Break Jail Phone in Old Bodycam Footage
On Thursday (Oct. 5), a video surfaced on No Jumper's account on X, formerly known as Twitter, featuring NBA YoungBoy in handcuffs from an arrest in February of 2019. In the clip below, the Baton Rouge, La. rapper is in a holding area, pacing back and forth and talking to police officers. YB then tells one of the officers that he wants to break one of their payphones in the next room.
"I'll break one of your phones first," YB said to one of the officers.
"You're not going get my phone," the officer responded.
"I mean payphone," YB clarified.
The officer tells NBA YoungBoy that his lawyer is coming down to get him out so he won't be in the holding area for long. But the "I Need to Know" rapper tells the officers he wants to break a jail phone so he could, presumably, upset the other inmates in the next room. However, the police officers inform him that the area is not a jail but a booking station where he was going to be processed and then released.
NBA YoungBoy tells the officers that if he breaks the jail phone the other people won't be able to call, to which the officers responded that if he did break a phone then they would put more charges on him. It's unclear why NBA YoungBoy wanted to break a jail phone, but it appears the rapper may have been intoxicated.
