Polo G‘s lawyer has released a statement about the raid conducted on the rapper’s Los Angeles home and his subsequent police detainment.
Polo G’s Lawyer Reacts to Police Raid
On Wednesday (Aug. 23), Polo G‘s attorney Bradford Cohen released a statement to XXL concerning his client’s recent legal issues.
“The incident surrounded someone staying in Polo’s home and not Polo directly,” Cohen tells 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. 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.”
