Polo G Arrested Following Raid on Los Angeles Home

The Chicago-born rapper was arrested on a few charges following a police raid of his LA home.

Following a police raid on his Los Angeles home, Polo G was arrested for kidnapping, robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

On Thursday, Polo G, whose real name is Taurus Bartlett, was taken into custody by the Burbank Police Department. A spokesperson for the Burbank Police Department told XXL Magazine that both Bartlett and his brother, Taurean, who goes by Trench Baby, were arrested on charges stemming from an April 2023 police report.

Bartlett’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, released a statement following the rapper’s initial arrest:

“The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo’s home and not Polo directly.The officers detained Polo to verify that he is not a convicted felon and never was 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 of 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 all have to answer for these new wrongful actions.”

TMZ obtained photos and video of Bartlett and his brother being arrested following the raid on their LA home. Both Bartletts are seen leaving the Los Angeles home with their hands up, and they were later put into handcuffs.

Bartlett’s next court date is scheduled for October 26.
