Rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again (NBA YoungBoy) and a woman were arrested in Atlanta on Monday afternoon for assaulting a hotel employee.

The incident took place at the Hyatt House in downtown Atlanta when a housekeeping staff entered the rapper's room that "was supposed to be unoccupied." However, YoungBoy and the woman, Starr Thigpen, were hanging out in the hotel room.

YoungBoy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was locked up at the Atlanta City Detention Center with three misdemeanors charges — possession of weed, use of fighting words and physical obstruction with another. No bond was set for YoungBoy and he was expected to appear before a judge Tuesday morning.
