Polo G has been arrested on charges of robbery, kidnapping and assault

Rapper Polo G has been arrested following an incident with his brother Trench Baby. A spokesperson from the LAPD noted that four suspects were detained on suspicion of robbery.

The statement continued that the police arrived at the rapper’s property with a search warrant and with the view to arrest Trench Baby for robbery but also charged Polo G with possession of a weapon.

A representative for the Burbank Police Department confirmed to Pitchfork that both brothers had been charged with robbery, kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon following an incident in April 2023.

The representative stated that the rappers were released on a bail of $100,000 and are due in court in October of this year. The charges are currently pending review.

Bradford M. Cohen, Polo G’s attorney, shared statements to some publications, telling TMZ: “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. They are also denying myself and my California law partner, Zoe Aron, access to him while he is being illegally detained.”

Cohen told Pitchfork: “Regarding Burbank, we are awaiting additional information. Given that, the charges against Polo are very unusual given the timing and purported knowledge of the police. The length of time between the alleged incident and the arrest is suspect. We believe once all the facts come out, it will be a very different picture than how the charges look on paper. We look forward to challenging the accusations and the vindication of our client.”

“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.

“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,” the statement concluded.
