Polo G Arrested on Gun Charge

Polo G has another run in with the law

According to a report from TMZ on Tuesday evening (Sept. 7), Polo, born Taurus Bartlett, was arrested in the downtown area of Los Angeles on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, which is considered a felony.

Apparently, the 22-year-old rapper was a passenger in a car that was pulled over and later searched. Upon searching the vehicle, LAPD officers reportedly discovered a firearm. The owner of the weapon is currently unclear.

As of reporting time, it is uncertain whether or not Polo G is still in police custody.

The outlet also notes that a juvenile was in the car as well and has been hit with the same charge as the “Rapstar” rhymer.

A little less than three months ago, Polo G found himself facing a legal issue in Miami after leaving an event in celebration of his third album, Hall of Fame. Polo was taken into custody on the morning of June 12 on charges of resisting arrest, battery on a police officer, criminal mischief, resisting arrest and threatening a public servant. He was held on a $19,500 bond and released later that night.

Polo and his younger brother were passengers in a car that had been pulled over due to the dark tint on the car. The driver refused to let his window down for officers. Polo had to be forced out of the car where police say he assaulted an officer which claimed he suffered more injuries to his forehead chin and cheek area.

The Chicago-bred artist’s June arrest was widely covered and criticized by his mother and manager, Stacia Mac, who revealed via social media that her 16-year-old son was also arrested and Miami police would not disclose the locations of her children. She also urged her son’s fans to contact the police due to the officers mishandling of her children’s arrest.

The Miami Police Department also shared via their official Twitter that they were aware of the incident and were conducting an investigation.

Shortly after Polo was released, he divulged about the incident online and said that one of the police officers suggested that they had been targeting Polo G and his crew following their arrival to South Florida.

This news of Polo G’s in-counter comes just days after he had to hire round the clock security where his mother had to fight off intruders at her home.

XXL has reached out to the LAPD, a rep for Polo G and the rapper’s lawyer for a comment.
