YNW Bortlen's Pre-Trial Release Revoked For Visiting Strip Clubs!!

YNW Bortlen, the co-defendant of YNW Melly, has reportedly had his pre-trial bond revoked after he visited several strip clubs -- a violation of his conditions.

According to documents obtained by Complex, Bortlen was given permission to leave his home for work on Mar. 27 but was later tracked the famous King of Diamonds strip club. The next day, he was tracked to the Playhouse Gentlemen’s Club and a G5ive Gentlemen’s Club after being given work-related permission to leave his home.


Broward County has now put a warrant out for his arrest and he will be heading back to jail.

Melly and Bortlen were arrested in February 2019 and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. Bortlen was also charged with two counts of accessory after the fact. 

The trial has been set for July 2nd.

Both men could face the death penalty if convicted for the murders of friends, YNW Juvy, and YNW Sakchaser.
