After being arrested on a domestic assault charge, there's more bad news for NBA YoungBoy.

According to The Advocate, prosecutors are asking a Baton Rouge judge to revoke his probation. If a judge takes the suggestion, YoungBoy could face a 10-year prison term for his role in a non-fatal drive-by shooting in 2016.

Baton Rouge Parish Assistant District Attorney April Leon also called YoungBoy "a threat to society and the safety of others".

The rapper (real name: Kentrell Gaulden) was arrested in early 2017 on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and pleaded guilty in May to a reduced charge of aggravated assault with a firearm for his part in a November 2016 drive-by shooting.

During sentencing, District Judge Bonnie Jackson gave him a suspended 10-year prison term and put him on active supervised probation for three years. She also told him that "failure is not an option."

In February, YoungBoy was arrested for an alleged assault of his girlfriend. He was charged with kidnapping, assault and weapons violations.

He's currently being held without bail.
