YoungBoy Never Broke Again Judge Throws Out Video and Photo Evidence in Federal Gun Case


YoungBoy Never Broke Again has scored a partial victory in his federal firearms case in his home state of Louisiana. According to court documents filed on Feb. 24, obtained by XXL today (March 2), Judge Shelly D. Dick of the United States District Court Middle District of Louisiana has granted one of the motions the rapper's legal team presented, which would suppress—or exclude—evidence via an SD Media card that contained both video and images that appear to show YoungBoy, born Kentrell Gauden, possessing firearms. The motion to suppress the firearm evidence that was obtained at the time of YB's arrest in Baton Rouge, La. in September of 2020, however, was denied. At the time of the arrest two years ago, YoungBoy was also hit with drug charges. The arrest took place at YoungBoy Never Broke Again's video shoot, where himself and 15 others were taken into custody by the Baton Rouge Police Department. A call had been made to police that "a group of people were on Chippewa Street carrying firearms and filming a rap music video" and weapons were brandished on the set of the video. Numerous individuals fled the scene when police arrived, including a man named Marvin Ramsey, YB's cameraman according to The Advocate, who was caught and in possession of a firearm and a black Sony 7R camera on a rotating mount, which contained an SD card. The court filing states that NBA YoungBoy was charged with possessing the firearm that Ramsey was carrying and was seeking to have that evidence struck from the case. Warrants were issued for seven vehicles at the scene of the arrest, but only two—a Cadillac SUV and an Acura SUV—are relevant to the case as a second firearm was found in the Acura and the SD cards, which were in a camera bag that also contained firearm magazines for Ramsey's weapon and a letter addressed to Ramsey, were found in the Cadillac. via #xxl
