YoungBoy Never Broke Again has reportedly been transferred to Ware County Jail in Georgia, where he will be held without bail.
According to TMZ, the 18-year-old Baton Rouge rapper was extradited to Georgia this week shortly after he was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida on an outstanding felony warrant. The artist—born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden—is facing charges of weapons possession, kidnapping, and aggravated assault (family violence), all of which stem from a Saturday incident in which he allegedly attacked his girlfriend, Jania Jackson, in Waycross, Georgia. The Miami Herald reports YoungBoy is accused of fleeing to the Sunshine State in an attempt to escape jurisdiction in Georgia.
As previously reported, YoungBoy was taken into custody over the weekend after surveillance cameras captured him throwing Jackson to the ground in a hotel hallway before dragging her back into his room. Shortly after the rapper's arrest, however, Jackson took to Periscope claiming she and YoungBoy were “just playing.”
“Kidnapped? Fuck no. Has he ever put his hands on me? Fuck no,” she said.
In May of 2017, YoungBoy was sentenced to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault with a firearm stemming from a 2016 shooting. Several months later, a judge suspended his sentence and placed YoungBoy on active supervised probation for three years. The 18-year-old's probation review hearing is scheduled for May 18.
Day's after YoungBoy's arrest, his mother went to Instagram Live, where she faced some serious criticism regarding her parenting skills. One commenter claimed Sherhonda Gaulden did not raise her son right, which prompted the mother to go off.
“Bitch, I raised my children right. And guess what, you're mama ain't raise you right, because if your mama raised you right you would know better not to talk to me bitch, 'cause I ain't the motherfucking one,” she said at around the two-minute mark in the video below. “The only right way is don't let nobody fucking play with you, bitch.”
