YG Arrested for Robbery At Las Vegas Casino

YG has been arrested on a felony robbery charge after allegedly stealing a gold chain from a fan’s neck at a Las Vegas casino, TMZ . This follows the $250,000 lawsuit filed last month against YG relating to the same alleged incident. YG was in court yesterday after turning himself in, before being released on $20,000 bail, according to TMZ.

In the suit filed last month, the claimant said he approached YG and his friends in the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino Las Vegas to take a picture. He claimed YG refused, started cursing at him, and, when he was walking away, instructed his friends to “Get him,” before yanking the chain and a diamond-laced pendant from his neck. 

Vegas police told TMZ 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 by his crew. We’re told the guy told YG he’s not a real celeb … and casino’s surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.

Allegedly the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant (valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000) before taking off.
