Rapper Polo G was arrested early Wednesday morning when police raided his Los Angeles home.
Polo G’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, says the rapper is being illegally detained and they are denying him access to his legal counsel.
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.
In a statement to XXL, Cohen added:
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.
He was booked on three felony charges: battery of a police officer, threatening to harm a public servant, and resisting a police officer with violence.
Polo G’s mother, Stacia Mac, took to Twitter to say that her son was the passenger in the car and he did nothing wrong.
None of these charges would be possible if the POLICE did not make contact with my son Polo G!!!
He was NOT the driver. He was a PASSENGER in a professionally licensed vehicle with security.
He was moving smart and correctly. What more could he have done.

Polo G gotta keep the criminals out of his sanctuary.
