AceShowbiz - Polo G has now got his freedom back. Just hours after he was arrested on battery on a police officer charge, the "Pop Out" rapper reportedly has been released from jail after posting a $19,500 bond.
The 22-year-old was let go from prison on Saturday, June 12, according to XXL Magazine. Following the release, he addressed his arrest on Twitter by writing, "1 of the officers told us they was (sic) on us since we got Off our Jet." He then added in another tweet, "They playin foul in Miami & dat s**t been like that for a minute."
Polo was taken into police custody in Miami, Florida around 1 A.M. on Saturday. Prior to that, his Cadillac was pulled over because it had blackout tinted windows. When police asked the driver to lower the windows, the latter reportedly refused.
One of the passengers then allegedly said they didn't want to roll down the windows because the car is bulletproof, prompting police to ask whether there were any firearms. As cops ordered the passengers to get out of the car, Polo reportedly shouted, "F**k you, what the f**k do I have to get out of the vehicle for?"
The "Hall of Fame" spitter, who insisted that he wanted to stay in the car, allegedly punched and stroke an officer with his elbow, leaving the latter with "multiple injuries [including] an abrasion to the right upper forehead area, an abrasion to the right chin area and a swollen and slightly bruised cheek area."
The MC also threatened the officer, "I will kill you, I swear I'll use these fists to beat the s*** out of you and knock your a** out." In addition, two guns were found in a black bag after police searched the hip-hop star's vehicle.
Polo was then booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. He was charged with battery on a police officer, threats to a public servant, resisting an officer with violence to his person, resisting an officer without violence to his person, and criminal mischief.
Polo himself was said to have hired Bradford Cohen as his lawyer to get his property returned including $15,000 in cash and more than $100k in jewelry. TMZ claimed that the attorney has filed a motion to get the valuables back. The lawyer also said in a statement, "We already have independent witnesses that are contradicting some of the statements of the police officers... We look forward to a full and complete hearing on all the facts and circumstances."
