YG arrested for robbery

Compton, California born rapper Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, popularly known as YG was arrested on Friday morning and charged with robbery after a police raid at his Chatsworth home.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s arrived at his LA’s San Fernando Valley home with a search warrant related to an on-going criminal investigation involving a robbery. He was arrested after the raid. He is currently  being held on $250,000 bail at the Men’s Central Jail. He is expected in court for arraignment on Jan. 28.

In July 2019, YG was found to be the owner of an SUV involved in a deadly shootout with authorities in Los Angeles.

He denied knowing how his Cadillac Escalade came to be involved, telling TMZ at the time, “I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood,” he said. “I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”

A house which the rapper leased in the Hollywood Hills by YG was raided after the shooting but YG wasn’t home at the time.

YG is also scheduled to perform at the forthcoming 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, but it looks as if he won’t be able to make it.
