POLO G ARRAIGNED ON GUN POSSESSION CHARGES AFTER LEAVING WEAPON IN NYC HOTEL ROOM

Polo G (real name Taurus Bartlett) has landed in trouble again after being caught in possession of an automatic weapon while he was visiting the East Coast.
On Thursday (April 11), New York Post reported that the 25-year-old rapper has been arraigned on charges of criminal possession of a firearm as well as criminal possession of a weapon in the Manhattan Criminal Court.

The issue stems from a stay at the Dominick Hotel in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood of SoHo, during which a maid found a loaded Glock with 10 bullets in his room. Authorities were subsequently alerted about the piece.

"This man is 100% serious in terms of his work, in terms of his professionalism," the Chicago native's attorney said while making a case for him being spared from bail. "He has absolutely no incentive to flee because he has a career he's built."

Contrarily, prosecutors argued that the "Finer Things" hitmaker is at flight risk given his past criminal record, which includes arrests for kidnapping, assault and robbery. Judge Kevin McGrath ultimately settled on a cash bail for $25,000 and set a court date for June 4.

Last year, Polo G was arrested for gun possession following a raid on his Southern California home, for which he was booked in late August along with his brother Trench Baby, who was hit with a robbery charge.

The Los Angeles Police Department told TMZ that the raid was in response to a previous report that alleged Baby robbed a man in Granada Hills during a music video shoot.

According to the report, he allegedly drew a handgun with an extended magazine on the victim when he arrived, demanding the latter empty his pockets and wire money to him. The pair apparently had a previous working relationship.

As for Polo, he was booked for illegal possession of the short-barreled rifle that was allegedly used in the aforementioned robbery. Additionally, cops said numerous firearms were recovered from his property during the raid.

Images of the recovered firearms recovered leaked online soon after, showing a small arsenal of rifles, machine guns, pistols and a shotgun, among other items.
