Previous Legal Issues and House Arrest

Gaulden has been under house arrest in Utah since October 2021, awaiting trial for federal firearms charges stemming from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Notably, agents from various law enforcement agencies participated in the search, although the exact location of Gaulden’s property in Weber County was not revealed.

The rapper has faced previous legal troubles, including charges related to weapons possession during a 2020 music video shoot in Baton Rouge. In 2016, Gaulden pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after being accused of firing at a group of people in Baton Rouge.

In 2023, Gaulden expressed his intention to be baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after the removal of his ankle monitor. A federal judge granted a request to modify his house arrest conditions in December, allowing participation in various programs and activities.

Continued Legal Proceedings

Despite these adjustments, Gaulden remained under house arrest until his recent arrest.

Further details regarding the investigation leading to the search warrant executed on Tuesday are currently unavailable.
