AceShowbiz – Young Chop‘s trouble with the law is mounting. The rapper was arrested again on Thursday, April 16 for violating the terms of his probation. It’s his second arrest in a month after he was booked on a misdeameanor charge of reckless conduct in Georgia’s Gwinnett County on Tuesday, April 7.
According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, the Chicago native violated his probation in connection to his February 26 arrest for allegedly starving his dog to the point of death. He was at the time charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.
Per the report, Chop was arrested at around 3:30 P.M. on Thursday without bail. There’s no word though on the detail of his violation, but it’s possibly related to his reckless conduct charge.
Chop has been lately making headlines for initiating feuds with fellow hip-hop stars. His social media spat with 21 Savage turned violent as the 26-year-old producer, whose real name is Tyree Lamar Pittman, searched for his rival on Sunday, April 5. He was then engaged in a shooting allegedly with 21’s entourage.
The hunt then landed him in jail for reckless conduct, but he was released on the same day. Upon his release, he went on Instagram Live, talking about someone snitching on him outside the Gwinnet County Jail. “Hey y’all boys told on me. Them boys working with the people, man. I hope nobody calls me while I’m on live right now. Young Chop is free you guys. This s**t crazy.”
He appeared to be fearing for his life as saying, “I’m scared. Am I good? I’m just trying to make sure now. I don’t know who the f**k this is though.” He added, They ain’t gonna shoot a muthaf**ka in front of muthaf**kin’ police station, is they?”
On the same day of his release, Chop was arrested for driving with an expired tag and without a license nor insurance. He has also been accused of shooting a firearm into the street near his home.
