The attorney of NBA YoungBoy has spoken out about the rapper’s recent arrest — he says the feds did not tell him that there was a federal warrant out for his arrest.
Speaking to The Advocate, James Manasseh said:
“What happened to him in California was a travesty. Every law enforcement agency knows we represent Kentrell and no one told us of his warrant. Had they told us he was indicted, we would have voluntarily surrendered him at our office in a safe and non-public manner.”
The attorney added, “The surprise tactic of arresting him in California was unnecessary. It was simply a show of force and power upon an individual by the Government.”
YoungBoy fled from the police first in a vehicle before exiting the vehicle and fleeing on foot. K9 dogs were sent to find the rapper. He was arrested and taken to jail.
The rapper has been indicted by a federal grand jury on firearm counts stemming from his September arrest in Baton Rouge while filming a music video.
