Rapper YG is facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly snatching a man’s chain off his neck and taking off with the diamond-laced pendant and it’s video evidence too.
The rapper was in a Vegas court Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in. YG was hit with felony robbery and he was released after posting $20,000 bail.
Vegas police spoke about the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away. The guy told YG he’s not a real celeb and casino’s surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by snatching his chain off his neck.
The chain fell to the ground, and YG is seen on video picking up the necklace pendant. The chain was valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000.
The alleged victim is also suing YG, claiming he had his goons beat him up before he snatched his jewelry. The man wants at least $250,000.
