Police have arrested popular California rapper, YG on a felony robbery charge. According to reports, YG allegedly stole a gold chain from a fan’s neck alongside a diamond-laced pendant at a Las Vegas casino. YQ, 28, born Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, appeared before a Vegas court on Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in. He was charged with felony robbery and he was released after posting $20k bail. The incident happened in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG, asked for a photo but was turned away by the rapper’s crew. While the man made his way out, he allegedly called YG a fake celebrity, in retaliation, YG instructed his crew to “Get him,” before pulling the chain and a diamond-laced pendant from his neck. The incident was captured on the casino’s surveillance footage. The alleged victim is also suing YG, claiming that the rapper’s crew beat him up before taking his jewellery valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000. The man wants at least $250k in compensation.  Photo Credit: Getty
