Polo G was arrested in Miami over the weekend, following an album release party he held for his new full-length effort, Hall Of Fame. The rapper was pulled over with his mother and manager, Stacia Mac, his younger brother, and security personnel as they were driving in a vehicle. According to Billboard, the rapper was stopped in order to be searched for weapons as a cop suspected they might be carrying some because they heard a passenger say the vehicle they were riding in was bulletproof.
An alleged altercation between Polo G and the officers ensued, after they stopped the vehicle and asked the occupants to step out. Officers Brandon Carrero and Joseph Acuna “ended up in a struggle on the ground” with the rapper who also struck the former in the head, chin, forehead, and cheek during the incident, according to the arrest report. Polo G was taken into custody and hit with charges include battery against a police officer, public servant/influence performance threat, resisting an officer with violence, resisting an officer without violence, and criminal mischief.
After posting a $19,500 bond, Polo G took to Twitter to speak out: “1 of the officers told us they was on us since we got Off our Jet,” he wrote, following up with a second tweet: “They playin foul in Miami & dat sh*t been like that for a minute.”
