NBA YoungBoy Arrested on Weapons and Drug Charges



NBA YoungBoy arrested due to many charges on him. Still no bail set to him according to Police.

The guy’s actually Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, but you probably know him better by his stage name NBA YoungBoy. Anyway, the cops from Cache County Sheriff’s Office snagged him around 2:50 p.m., according to their records. And get this, no bail for him. But i think he got bailed, No, No, he was another guy who got bail in the same day.

Authorities busted Gaulden, who’s only 24, on some serious charges. He’s facing big trouble for possessing a dangerous weapon. When he shouldn’t mixed up in some shady stuff. Plus, they’re hitting him with felonies for identity fraud and forgery. And just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, he’s also got a drug possession charge on his plate. Tough break for the guy, no doubt. Best wishes for him.

So, according to Lt. Mikelshan Bartschi from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office, they went all out on this one. They rocked up to Gaulden’s place bright and early Tuesday morning armed with a search warrant. And get this, they didn’t come alone they brought in the big guns, with help from the FBI and Homeland Security.

Bartschi spilled the beans, saying that the search warrant details are all wrapped up in an ongoing investigation into some shady business. Looks like they’re digging deep into some serious criminal activity.

“Look, this investigation is a real head-scratcher, so we’re keeping a lid on the details for now.” He straight-up shut down any hopes of getting more info, citing the complexity of the case. As for Gaulden, well, he’s in deep trouble. They’re slapping him with charges for a whole bunch of sketchy stuff. Like violating the Utah Controlled Substances Act, pulling off identity fraud, and fraud itself. Tough spot to be in, no doubt.


Gaulden shook things up in Utah back in 2023 when he spilled the beans to Billboard Magazine. He straight-up said he was gearing up to get baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Now, that’s a twist nobody saw coming.

The rapper, Gaulden, found himself caught up in some serious drama, but he’s also achieved significant success in the music scene. Anyway, authorities had him stuck at home in Salt Lake City with a house arrest tag. There’s a shady past. He’s supposedly mixed up in, including his alleged involvement in a shooting down in Miami back in 2019. Plus, he’s no stranger to the law. He’s faced busts before for attempted murder, drugs, guns, assault, and even kidnapping. But get this twist: He ended up in Utah as part of a deal his lawyers cooked up in court back in 2021. Their pitch was simple: “Moving to Utah would keep YoungBoy out of trouble.

While Gaulden remained stuck at home on house arrest, some LDS Church missionaries visited him. Gaulden had nothing but good things to say about them, calling them “wonderful souls” and saying he actually looked forward to their visits. He mentioned to Billboard his plan to get baptized into the church. But he wanted to wait until that pesky ankle monitor came off first.

Gaulden’s music game is seriously strong. Billboard spilled the beans, saying that in 2022, only Taylor Swift and Drake had more streams than him. And get this, he did it all without much radio play at all. But that’s not all according to Spotify, this Baton Rouge rapper pulls in over 17 million listeners every single month. Talk about making waves in the music scene.


NBA YoungBoy ‘s Music Style:

Gaulden’s got some serious skills when it comes to his music. People talk about his smooth vocals and how he brings this intense energy to his tracks. Plus, he’s like a music-making machine—constantly churning out new stuff at lightning speed. Since 2015, he’s dropped over twenty-six albums, EPs, and mixtapes. That’s a ton of music, right? But here’s the thing: In 2023, he opened up about his habit of dropping tracks left and right, calling it a “disease.” He admitted that while making music is like therapy for him, he struggles to hit the brakes when he needs to. And on top of that, he mentioned how the whole music lifestyle can easily throw you off track from your real goals. Tough spot to be in, no doubt.
