Early Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) made headlines as they executed a search warrant at the residence of well-known rapper Polo G. The incident unfolded at 11817 Macoda Lane in Chatsworth, California, the current home address of the 24-year-old artist.
A total of four individuals suspected of involvement in a robbery were apprehended during the police operation, which began around 8:30 a.m. Images captured by TMZ reveal Polo G, whose real name is Taurus Bartlett, standing outside his property with his hands raised in surrender. He was subsequently handcuffed by officers in front of a police vehicle.
Polo G’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, stated that his client’s arrest is linked to the discovery of a purported firearm at his home. Cohen clarified that Polo G is not, and has never been, a convicted felon. The lawyer also expressed frustration over being denied access to his client during the ongoing detainment, deeming it an “illegal and unethical practice.”
This is not the first time Polo G has faced legal trouble. Back in June 2021, he was arrested in Miami shortly after the release of his album “Hall of Fame.” The arrest resulted from a traffic stop that escalated into a confrontation with law enforcement. He was charged with multiple felonies and misdemeanors, including battery of a police officer, threatening a public servant, resisting an officer with violence, and criminal mischief.
Polo G’s mother, Stacia Mac, took to Twitter to defend her son’s actions during the Miami incident, asserting that he was a passenger in a licensed vehicle with security present. She argued that the charges stemmed from the initial interaction with the police.
As the details of Polo G’s latest arrest continue to unfold, the artist’s fans and the public await further updates on the situation. The case highlights the complex relationship between artists, law enforcement, and public perception, shedding light on the challenges that celebrities often face in the legal arena.
