YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested on Monday evening along with one other suspect, according to WAFB Channel 9. The rapper was charged with possession of a schedule 1 drug and intent to distribute schedule II and IV drugs, as well as with illegal possession of a firearm, the station reported.

A video alleging to feature the moment the rapper was arrested has been uploaded to Youtube.
Gaulden already had quite the extensive arrest record. In 2016 the rapper was sentenced to a ten-year suspended prison term and a three-year active probation for a shooting over which he was initially charged with two counts of attempted murder. In 2019 he was arrested for assaulting a hotel worker, and he and his entourage were later alleged to be involved in a shooting that left one person dead.
Gaulden released his most recent album, TOP, just this month. The album gave the rapper his third number one album upon its debut.
