This is crazy! Rapper Polo G was arrested in Miami.
Polo, born Taurus Bartlett was taken to Guilford Knight Correctional Center and charged with battery on a police officer, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest, along with other charges.
The Miami Police Department tweeted out, “The Miami Police Department is aware of the incident involving Mr. Taurus Bartlett, also known as Polo G, and another male juvenile. We will provide updates as they become available.”
Polo’s mother and manager, Stacia Mac posted a video on Instagram recounting the moments leading to her sons’ arrests. Mac explained that they were riding the car with security after the album release party for Polo’s latest album “Hall of Fame.”
She also went on to say that the police “made it difficult for her to check on her children.” Mac said that her two sons were heading to the after-party when the incident occurred.
“My kids called me in a frenzy saying the police are behind them, 20 cars behind them,” Mac said. She also added, “They refused to let me speak to my minor son, who is 16-years-old. They stopped them because they were driving while Black.”
The Miami Police department has not responded to these claims as of yet.
