NBA YoungBoy Pleads Not Guilty In Federal Weapons Case

NBA YoungBoy has entered a plea of not guilty on two federal weapons charges.

The rapper pleaded not guilty to one count of a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of possession of an unregistered firearm in charges stemming from a September 2020 arrest in Baton Rouge. A trial date has been set for the middle of June.

YoungBoy is also facing state weapons and drug charges connected to the same arrest. A hearing is scheduled for April 20.


YoungBoy (real name Kentrell Gaulden) had an outstanding warrant, and while driving, police asked him to pull over his vehicle. According to the cops, YoungBoy’s vehicle did not pull over, and the cops ended up chasing him before YoungBoy exited the vehicle and tried escaping on foot. 

Cops used a K-9 dog to track down Youngboy and searched his car. Reportedly they found a firearm in the car but did not say whether the weapon belonged to the rapper or someone else. He faces a king stretch in prison if found guilty.
