NBA YoungBoy has gained a small amount of freedom.
According to Baton Rouge news outlet, WAFB9, the rapper appeared in court on Friday morning (Aug. 30) for a probation hearing related to his May 17 arrest. A judge approved that YoungBoy can now exit his home while on house arrest, but there are specific stipulations. The rapper is not allowed to perform or go to an outside studio to record music, but the judge said that he can record music inside of his home. YoungBoy was also approved to go to church, the doctor and the bank. He was ordered to be on house arrest for 14 months.
Back in May, YoungBoy violated the terms of his probation. A judge said that she saw a video on social media that appeared to show the rapper "talking trash and smack," but in a threatening way. His actions violated the terms of his 2017 probation for a firearm charge.
The rapper was detained on May 17, just days after he was shot at in a Sunny Isles Beach, FL shooting. The incident left a 43-year-old man dead and YoungBoy's girlfriend with a wound to her shoulder.
YoungBoy's lawyer said that the rapper was remorseful about the man's death. "He was the victim of an assassination attempt," the attorney said at the time. "YoungBoy told me, 'I wish they would have gotten me, not him.'"
His next probation hearing is scheduled for Dec. 13.
YoungBoy has had a number of run-ins with the law in the past. Back in February, he was arrested and booked in Atlanta for possession of less than an ounce of weed, use of fighting words and physical obstruction with another, according to TMZ.
The police report claimed that the rapper was in a hotel room with a woman named Starr Thigpen when an altercation transpired. The police alleged that YoungBoy and Thigpeg were not supposed to be occupying the room at the time. When they were told to vacate, Thigpen allegedly struck a housekeeper in the face and a fight allegedly "spilled out into the hallway" of the hotel.
