Guests reported the incident to hotel management, who subsequently contacted the authorities.

But the Outside Today rapper, whose real name is Kentrell Desean Gaulden, and Jania quickly left the premises.

They were gone by the time officials were on scene.

Existing video of the incident, as well as evidence left behind in the room – including the presence of blood – led authorities to issue NBA Young Boy with an arrest warrant.

The Atlantic Records-signed performer was later arrested by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee, Florida.

He was due to take the stage at The Moon nightclub, but police pulled over his tour bus.

The rapper was booked on an outstanding felony warrant linked to kidnapping and other offenses.

His girlfriend later took to social media to downplay the incident.

Jania says in the clip, ‘I was pulling him, that’s just us, that’s just the way we play.’

Jania said that she couldn’t logistically be kidnapped by YoungBoy, as she she wanted to stay with him.

‘Kidnapped? F*** no! … has he ever put his hands on me? F*** no! … we 18, what do y’all expect? What do y’all expect?’ she said.

‘We good, I promise you that – y’all think I would stay somewhere I was getting abused? F*** no! We’re good, trust me.’

The Untouchable artist has been in trouble with the law in the past.

He was placed on a three-year probation period last summer after his guilty plea to aggravated assault with a firearm.

This was in connection with a November 2016 drive-by shooting officials said he was involved in.

He’s due in court on Monday at 8:30 a.m., according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

If convicted for his crimes he could be facing life in prison.
