YG was reportedly arrested in Las Vegas after allegedly snatching somebody’s chain and walking away with it.

According to TMZ, he was charged with a felony robbery and was released after posting $20,000 bail.

Vegas police tell us … the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We’re told the guy told YG he’s not a real celeb … and casino’s surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.

We’re told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant — valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 — before taking off.

The victim is also suing YG for at least $250,000.
