NBA Youngboy was released from jail late Tuesday afternoon after being arrested, along with 15 others, Monday evening in Baton Rouge on drug charges.
According to arrest records, Baton Rouge police were called to an abandoned property in response to reports of a large group brandishing firearms and filming a video. Authorities say two street gangs, Never Broke Again and Bottom Boy Guerillas, were identified in the group.
After the vehicles present at the scene, BRPD found about three grams of marijuana, Hydrocodone, Xanax, digital scales, and several handguns and rifles, including an AK-47. NBA Youngboy was carrying more than $47,000 at the time of the arrest.
"It is important to remember that when someone is arrested for a crime it does not mean they are guilty of anything," said NBA Youngboy's attorney. "Kentrell Gaulden [NBA Youngboy's real name] is innocent of the crimes he was arrested for yesterday evening. He did not possess any firearms nor did he possess any controlled dangerous substances. Law enforcement arrived on scene without any evidence of a crime occurring and immediately detained 15-20 young black men solely based on an alleged tip that firearms were present on the scene. We still have the Second Amendment in the United States. The immediate detention of these black men was illegal in that it violated their Constitutional rights. The subsequent searches conducted by law enforcement were also illegal. Even with the illegal searches that were conducted, no firearms or controlled dangerous substances were found on Mr. Gaulden’s person or in his immediate control. Mr. Gaulden is innocent of the charges he was booked on last night and looks forward to defending himself as such."
Additional individuals arrest include: Cleveland Ely, Morrow Battie, Anthony Grayer, Charles Brown, Marlon Ramsey, Dionel Jacob, Dalton Quiett, Nathan Hayes, Tyler Taylor, Daryl Brown, Jalen Griffin, Joseph Robinson, Deonte Smart, Kendrick Edwards, and Joshua Butler.
