Chart-topping Los Angeles-based rapper NBA YoungBoy was acquitted Friday of a felony gun-possession charge.
YoungBoy, born Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested in March 2021 after a high-speed chase through Tarzana in which prosecutors alleged a gun was recovered from the floorboard of his Mercedes-Benz.
The jury began deliberations Thursday on the third day of trial in Los Angeles federal court.
The 22-year-old rapper is facing a similar charge in his native Louisiana.
Gaulden's lawyer told the jury his client didn't know the gun was in the car and panicked when police tried to pull him over. The defense also argued that Gaulden's fingerprints were not recovered from the weapon.
