NBA YoungBoy was tracked down by a K-9 police unit and arrested this week following a drug bust last year where cops uncovered a stash of guns.
The rapper, whose real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, was reportedly fleeing from the FBI and Los Angeles Police after they tried to pull him over on an outstanding federal warrant stemming from an arrest back in September.
YoungBoy was one of 16 people arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on various charges related to distribution and manufacturing of drugs and possession of stolen firearms in September 2020.
At the time, police had responded to reports that a large group of people was brandishing weapons while filming a music video.
Marijuana, hydrocodone, and several handguns and rifles were found at the scene.
His lawyer, however, denied that he was guilty at the time.
According to TMZ, documents show that federal prosecutors take issue with two guns YoungBoy allegedly had on him when he was arrested in Louisiana.
Cops claims the 21-year-old had on him a .45 pistol as well as a 9mm handgun which was not registered to him.
Documents seen by TMZ reportedly reveal that all weapons in his possession were seized immediately, including the two in question.
YoungBoy is already a convicted felon and so is forbidden under state and federal laws from possessing a firearm, Complex states.
The rapper was taken into FBI custody on Monday after he allegedly failed to stop when pulled over by Los Angeles Police in relation to a warrant over the bust.
YoungBoy was reportedly tracked down using a K-9 unit after attempting to evade capture.
The young artist was reportedly riding in a car that the LAPD and the feds attempted to pull over because of the rapper's outstanding warrant.
According to TMZ cops were led on a short pursuit, and after the car stopped, the rapper allegedly attempted to flee on foot and had to be sniffed out by a police dog.
Now, Floyd Mayweather’s daughter has begged cops to "free" YoungBoy, just months after she gave birth to their son.
Iyanna Mayweather, better known as Yaya, posted an Instagram story saying her "day has been completely ruined," after NBA Young Boy's arrest.
On a different story she posted a photo with the hashtag #FreeKentrell.
The pair had been dating since 2019 and in January, Yaya gave birth to YoungBoy's seventh child, Kentrell Gaulden Jr.
Rapper Jackboy has also shown his support to YoungBoy through an Instagram story while his on-and-off girlfriend Jazlyn Mychelle posted a broken heart.
YoungBoy has been involved in several brushes with the law in recent years, with the most recent being drug charges in September 2020.
He is a dad of seven children and all have different mothers.
Commenting on his daughter’s relationship, boxing legend Mayweather said he just wanted the "best" for her.
He told Hollywood Unlocked: "Always want the best.
"If that makes her happy, then we’re happy."
"What I try not to do is be in her personal business because once she’s no longer under my roof, then you know what? it’s between her and her better half."
Yaya confirmed the birth of her baby boy back in January, by posting a picture of the baby's foot on her Instagram story.
The pair's relationship has been rocky from the start, as Mayweather was accused of slashing the tires on YoungBoy's Maybach in 2019.
She denied doing so.
Last April, Iyanna was arrested for allegedly stabbing Lapattra Lashai Jacobs, the mother of another one of the rapper's children. She pleaded not guilty.
