Polo G, a rapper, was arrested on allegations of battery on a police officer, resisting arrest with violence, and criminal mischief.
According to jail records, Taurus Bartlett was booked into jail early Saturday on five charges and freed on bond hours later.
According to arrest papers published by the Miami Police Department, authorities pulled over Bartlett, 22, and others early Saturday, and the rapper ended up in a battle on the ground with authorities. According to one of the records, an officer attempting to handcuff Bartlett was attacked multiple times.
According to the records, Bartlett was combative while resisting arrest in downtown Miami. One of the police stated that he had ordered him and all the passengers in the automobile he was traveling in to come out of the vehicle so that they could be patted down for firearms because they had heard a passenger claim the vehicle was bulletproof.
The police agency stated that it was investigating the incident and will be analyzing all camera footage, claiming that the arrest was captured on many body-worn cameras. According to Michael Vega, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, the department is also investigating various threats made against staff and facilities in response to the rapper’s detention.
