A prosecutor announced on Monday that federal prosecutors are also looking at rapper NBA YoungBoy, the target of a state investigation into what happened during the September production of a music video in Baton Rouge, which led to his arrest and the arrest of 15 others on drug and weapons charges.
News of the federal investigation emerged after the lawyer of YoungBoy, James Manasseh, filed papers to free his client from bond supervision because four months have passed after the incident and no charges have been filed. A judge also ordered that certain items, including over $40,000 in cash and a $300,000 check, which were confiscated during the arrest, be returned to Baton Rouge rapper.
“The Office of the District Attorney has returned Mr. Gaulden’s seized property and there is no indication that the State intends to file a Bill of Information against Mr. Gaulden,” the motion entailed.
