Even though it was reported that NBA Youngboy wouldn't be held responsible for the fatal shootout in Miami on Mothers Day, it's now been revealed that he's been taken into custody and will be detained for at least 30 days.
It's been reported that earlier this morning District Judge Bonnie Jackson ruled that his involvement in the shooting, as well as a social media post that followed, constituted a violation of his probation that he was sentenced to back in 2017 for aggravated assault with a firearm. The judge noted that one of the conditions of his probation has been to stay off social media altogether, which he hadn't been adhering to even prior to the deadly altercation in Florida.
Furthermore, Youngboy has also been arrested twice while on probation, back in 2018 for allegedly committing assault in Georgia and earlier this year for possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
Nonetheless, his girlfriend that was wounded in the shooting is holding Youngboy down on her own social media, recently posting a photo of the two together with a caption that reads: "I Got U"
