YoungBoy Never Broke Again Held Without Bail in Kidnapping Case
YoungBoy Never Broken Again's legal issues keep getting worse for him. After being arrested over the weekend in Florida and then being extradited to Georgia, the rapper is now being held without bail.
According to TMZ, the rapper was transferred to Georgia's Ware County Jail, where he got a new mugshot and met with a judge who gave him the latest order. YoungBoy is currently facing felony charges of aggravated assault and kidnapping.
The Until Death Call My Name rapper was first arrested on Feb. 25 in Tallahassee, Fla. on an outstanding felony fugitive warrant. YoungBoy was scheduled to perform at The Moon nightclub but his tour bus was stopped before he could hit the stage. Authorities then discovered the rapper had a warrant in Georgia for allegedly committing assault, weapons violations and kidnapping.
The following day, YoungBoy was extradited to Georgia to face aggravated assault, kidnapping and weapons charges. The charges stem from an altercation he got into with his girlfriend, Jania, at a hotel in Waycross, Ga.
Surveillance video from the incident shows the artist slamming the woman into the ground outside of a hotel room, before picking her up and carrying her through the hallway. Following the incident, blood was found in the hotel room but by the time the police arrived, the rapper and the woman were gone.
YoungBoy also recently got some support from his mother, Sherhonda Gaulden, who said they're unable to get him out of jail. Gaulden fired back at critics on Instagram who called out her parenting skills. "Bitch, what the fuck I'm supposed to be doing? Sitting in the cell with him?" she said. "We can't get him out right now."
