YG has been arrested by Los Angeles police for robbery, according to a TMZ report.


L.A. County Sheriff's deputies reportedly arrived at YG's San Fernando Valley home at 4 a.m. and presented a search warrant. Soon after their arrival, YG was reportedly taken into custody and charged with robbery. It is currently unknown which incident police are alleging YG is involved with.

YG currently faces three felony charges in connection with a May 2018 incident in Las Vegas. A fan named Benjamin Naderi claimed YG attacked him and stole his jewelry in Las Vegas – a $250,000 lawsuit against YG was dismissed in August, but the rapper will go to trial in March 2020 to face counts of felony robbery, grand larceny, and larceny from a person.

YG is currently scheduled to perform a Nipsey Hussle tribute at the 2020 Grammys with DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, John Legend, and Kirk Franklin.
