Last month, YG was sued for his involvement in the alleged assault and robbery of a man in a Las Vegas casino. As he continues to live dangerously on the path to his next studio album Stay Dangerous, another obstacle has formed in his way. According to TMZ, YG has been arrested for the same incident and charged with felony robbery charges as a result.
The arrest reportedly happened yesterday as the source writes there is available video footage that shows YG yanking the gold chain off of a man, dropping it and then picking it up before he took off. According to the publication, the value of the jewelry is somewhere between $3K and $9K. Young Gangsta was present in a Las Vegas courtroom yesterday to address the situation after a warrant was put out for his arrest. The rapper has since been released after posting $20K bail.
The situation allegedly escalated after the man was denied a photo with YG, telling him that he’s not a “real celeb” anyways. Of course, the Compton artist was pretty heated after that, yanking the chain off his neck and making his way out of the Cosmopolitan.
The alleged victim is also suing YG for $250K, claiming that members of the rapper’s crew beat him up before his jewelry was taken. As details become clearer, we will update you.
