YG Arrested for Chain Snatching

By Daryl Nelson

YG has been arrested for snatching a chain with a diamond-laced pendant off a guy's neck and running away with it. 

As TMZ reports, the rapper turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest, and by Thursday he was in a Las Vegas court. He was hit with a felony robbery charge and later bailed out for $20,000.

All of this stems from an incident that occurred in May at the Cosmopolitan in Vegas when a man asked YG for a photo but was turned away by his crew. The guy got upset and told YG he's not a real celebrity.  So YG ripped the chain off his neck. It fell to the ground and the rapper was seen running away with it on video.

The chain and pendant are worth somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000, but the guy is also suing for at least $250,000. That's because he said YG's goons beat him up before he took his necklace.
