NBA YoungBoy was just found not guilty in his federal firearms case.
The verdict, confirmed by the two NBA lawyers Andre Belanger and the U.S. Attorney’s Office comes after a 3-day trial… the jury found him not guilty on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm over a loaded handgun found in his car last year.
As we reported, LAPD and federal authorities attempted to stop a vehicle the rapper was in last March on an outstanding federal warrant.
The guy apparently didn’t give up easily – a short chase ensued, but once the car was stopped, cops said the rapper fled on foot. The police established a perimeter and brought a K-9 to help find YoungBoy. The weapon in question was found in his vehicle.
It was released on $500,000 bond from federal prison in October, but the judge ordered him to remain under house arrest in Utah until his trial date.
There was support for the rapper ahead of his sentencing – a swarm of fans surrounded the entrance to the Los Angeles court on Friday as they awaited the verdict. Floyd Mayweather also appeared in court this week.
