Polo G Issues Statement Over Police Raid Conducted at Los Angeles Home

His lawyers say the incident involved someone staying at his residence.

Polo G is releasing a statement about the raid conducted at his Los Angeles home and the detainment that followed.

Via his lawyers, the Chicago rapper noted on Wednesday (August 23) that the incident involved a person staying at his residence.

"The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo's home and not Polo directly," attorney Bradford Cohen said in the statement, according to XXL. "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,” Cohen continued. “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."

On Wednesday morning, TMZ reports the LAPD executed a search warrant on Polo’s home. Video of the incident showed a swarm of officers outside of the home shouting orders over a loudspeaker. Multiple people inside, including the rapper, exited the residence, were handcuffed, and led away.
