Why did Polo G get arrested?
Polo G was arrested by the cops on Wednesday morning, meanwhile, the authorities raided his Los Angeles house. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department has told the media outlet that his search warrant has something to do with his brother Taurean (known as Trench Baby).
A total of four suspects were detained at approximately 8:30 a.m. on August 23, 2023, Wednesday. At the moment, the cops are trying to figure out if he was harboring a fugitive. On the other hand, Trench shared something about the raid on his Instagram Story and the message didn’t seem very positive. He simply wrote, “I Love y’all man.”
The LAPD spokesperson mentioned that the cops reached the property with a search warrant. In the pictures that have been obtained by TMZ, you can see a lot of vehicles lined up outside Polo’s house. One of the photographs showed the artist being handcuffed by the police officers in front of a few black cars.
What did Polo’s attorney Bradford Cohen have to say about his arrest?
While having a chat with the publication TMZ, Polo’s lawyer Bradford Cohen, said, “Polo is being held under the guise that the police department needs to double check that he is not a convicted felon as there was a purported firearm found in the home. He is not and never was a convicted felon. Any previous charges he had I got dismissed and it’s all public record.”
As per the attorney of the Chicago rapper, the officers are denying Bradford and his legal partner Zoe Aron “access to him while he is being illegally detained.”
In a statement issued to hip-hop magazine XXL, Cohen said, “The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo’s home and not Polo directly. The officers have detained Polo to ‘verify’ that he is not a convicted felon, as they assert a firearm was found in the home. It is widely known that Polo is not a convicted felon and never was a convicted felon.”
He concluded, “I personally got all his charges in Miami dismissed when he was in our opinion wrongfully arrested and charged. They have refused to allow us access to our client which is also an illegal and unethical practice and someone will have to answer for these new wrongful actions.”
