After a police raid at their home, Polo G and his brother Trench Baby’s problems didn’t go away; in fact, they just got worse!
According to TMZ, the two brothers were later detained for a number of offenses, such as kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, and robbery. After the announcement of the charges were made, Polo G’s attorney wasted no time to respond.
“The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo’s home and not Polo directly,” his attorney Bradford Cohen said. “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.”
On Tuesday, Taurean Bartlett, aka Trench Baby, was named as the suspect in a heist in Granada Hills, California. When the victim arrived at Trench Baby’s house to film a music video, the “No Hook” rapper allegedly pulled out a “handgun with an extended magazine and demanded that the victim transfer money to an unknown account.”
Polo G was arrested again shortly after being held for the police raid and later released due to an outstanding warrant for kidnapping. According to sources familiar with the case, he was freed from Burbank Jail at around 4:30 a.m. local time after posting a $100,000 bond.
“Burbank Police tell us Polo and TB had outstanding warrants for kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, and robbery, stemming from a report filed last April,” TMZ reported. “Officers waited for the pair to be released from LAPD custody and then nabbed them for the warrant around 10:30 PM on Wednesday.”
This isn’t the first time the Chicago rapper has run into legal issues. One day after the release of his Hall of Fame album, the 24-year-old was detained in Miami in June 2021 following a traffic stop. Polo G was arrested at 8:45 a.m. and was charged with three felonies: battery on a police officer, endangering a public servant, and violently resisting a police officer.
He was also accused of criminal mischief and resisting a police officer without violence, which are also misdemeanors. According to documents, he was later released on bond.
