Last month, NBA YoungBoy beat his federal felon in possession of a firearm case in California.
He's still facing charges in the Middle District of Louisiana stemming from a bust at a video shoot in his hometown of Baton Rouge that uncovered illegal guns.
On July 26th, YB violated the terms of his pretrial release by testing positive for THC after trying to fake a drug test.
During the screen, the observing officer noticed a device was being used to allow the urine into the testing cup,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Louisiana said. “When questioned, the defendant pulled up his pants quickly. The defendant denied using a device and would not comply with the officer’s attempts to view the device. The defendant was informed that the test would be negated, and a second sample would be required. After the request, the defendant was allowed to get water. The defendant was instructed to remain in the lobby and not leave for any reason; however, the defendant left the office without permission prior to providing a second sample.”
The next day, July 27th, YoungBoy provided a proper sample and tested positive for THC. He then admitted he'd been vaping.
Youngboy lawyers have been trying to get YB out of house arrest as he awaits his Louisiana trial. However, prosecutors say the positive test -- plus an unauthorized trip to the recording studio -- should keep him locked up at home.
In other YB news, his album The Last Slimeto, dropped yesterday.
