Police Raid Polo G’s House

This Wednesday police raided Polo G’s house in Los Angeles, allegedly in relation to a robbery. Several individuals were escorted out of the house in handcuffs, including Polo G.

Bradford Cohen, Polo’s lawyer, told reporters that Polo has not done anything wrong, and that the “officers have detained Polo to ‘verify’ that he is not a convicted felon, as they assert a firearm was found in the home.” Despite Polo being taken into custody, his lawyer stands firm on the ground that whatever gun was found in the home did not belong to Polo and will not cause him any more trouble.

Cohen also said, “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.”

Cohen is referring to Polo G’s arrest in Miami during the summer of 2021. The rapper had left a release party for his album ‘Hall of Fame’ when he allegedly attacked a police officer during a traffic stop. The officer claimed Polo punched and elbowed him multiple times, leaving him with abrasions on his face and a swollen cheek. He was charged with battery against a police officer for the incident.

However, body cam footage was released after the arrest showing Polo G arguing verbally with the officers, not physically. One released clip showed a frustrated Polo in the back of the police vehicle, trying to get the officers’ attention and eventually calling one of the officers “broke” after being asked to quiet down. Polo G’s family and legal team believe that Polo was racially profiled during that police encounter.

The charges for that case were ultimately dropped in April with Polo simply having to attend anger management classes. Polo and his team are hoping for a similar outcome with this incident in Los Angeles. Cohen said that the police “have refused to allow us access to our client which is also an illegal and unethical practice,” so who knows how long it will take police to clear and release him.
