NBA YoungBoy ran away from the FBI and Los Angeles Police, until he was eventually caught by a K-9 unit and got arrested.

The Louisiana rapper, real name Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, is said to remain in jail until his trail date.

On Thursday (Apr 1) a Louisiana judge decided to revoke NBA Youngboy's bond, citing a history of probation violations and his “characteristics and history, which reflect a pattern of violent behavior stretching back several years", WAFB reports.

Despite his current situation, the "House Arrest Tingz" rapper seems to be in good spirits.

He is also pictured with other jail mates, who gathered to take the photo with him.

The rapper's fans were glad to see that he looks well. One fan commented "when he out in public - 😐, in jail - 😁" underneath DJ Akademiks post of his jail photo.

Another fan wrote "He looks happy", while another added "At least he’s all smiles!"

As for now, NBA Youngboy's trail date has not yet been announced.
