Polo G, real name Taurus Bartlett, was booked on Saturday, June 12, with three felonies: battery of a police officer, threatening to harm a public servant and resisting a police officer with violence; as well as two misdemeanors: resisting a police officer without violence and criminal mischief.

The report from the Miami Herald indicates that he was pulled over by officers for “an unspecified traffic infraction.”

However, during his interaction with police, the rapper allegedly “ended up in a struggle” with officers, reportedly striking an one officer in the head multiple times.

His mom, Stacia Mac, took to Twitter and blamed the officers involved for racially profiling her son, and also claimed her son was in the passenger seat when the car was pulled over.

“None of these charges would be possible if the POLICE did not make contact with my son Polo G!!!” she wrote.

It was on her Instagram Stories that Stacia accused the officers of profiling him.

“They stopped them because they were driving while Black. When I go and approach them to ask about my children, namely my minor son who’s 16, they tell us that if we don’t leave that they’re gonna lock us up.”

The Miami Police Department is currently reviewing his arrest.
