Rapper YG has been arrested for felony robbery due to an incident with a fan back in May.

According to TMZ, back in May in Vegas, a man approached YG for a picture but was turned away by his crew. The man then told YG he wasn’t a real celebrity, resulting in YG snatching the man’s chain off of his neck. And the whole incident was allegedly caught on a casino surveillance tape.┬áThe chain fell on the ground, and YG can be seen picking the pendant and walking off. The pedant is valued between $3,000 and $9,000.

A warrant was issued for YG’s arrest, and he turned himself in, being released on a $20,000 bail.

The alleged victim is also suing YG for $250,000, claiming he was beat up by YG’s crew before his jewelry was taken.
