KATY, Texas — We hope this report is wrong, but it appears NBA YoungBoy just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The rapper, whose name is an acronym for “Never Broke Again,” is being investigated after he allegedly pistol-whipped a local man.
The victim told police he was attacked suddenly after arriving at a music studio in Katy. The man said a bag was placed over his head and he was punched, kicked and struck with a firearm.
Allegedly, the victim recognized NBA YoungBoy when the bag was removed from his head, and he said the rapper also FaceTimed his manager.
“I got him here,” YoungBoy reportedly told his manager, to which the manager allegedly replied, “release him, you don’t need any more legal trouble.”
YoungBoy has had multiple cases over the course of his rap career. The Louisiana rapper was charged with disorderly conduct and possession in 2019 for punching a housekeeper at a hotel and having marijuana. In 2018, he was arrested in Tallahassee Fla., after being wanted in connection with a domestic kidnapping, and in 2017, he received a 10-year suspended prison term for a first-degree attempted murder charge in Baton Rouge.
A spokesperson for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office told TMZ that the victim was dropped off in front of his house, then was transported to a hospital by his mom and girlfriend with non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation is still ongoing.
We’ve seen this story before, and hope this young man gets his act together before something irreversible happens.
