Rapper Polo G is no stranger to run-ins with the law. After a June arrest for battery of a police officer, he was again arrested for carrying a concealed firearm. Now, prosecutors have dropped several charges in the police battery case.

TMZ reports that two felony charges and one misdemeanor were dropped in the case, according to court records. The felony battery charge and another for threatening a public servant have been dropped. The misdemeanor charge was for criminal mischief.

The charges were dropped as prosecutors were unable to dig up sufficient evidence to make the charges stick. The scuffle took place during a traffic stop. Two charges of resisting an officer stemming from the incident are still on the table.

Polo G’s attorney, Bradford Cohen says his client will take anger management courses. He stated that once that is completed, the rest of the charges will be dropped. It sounds like he’s getting a sweetheart deal.


Polo G considers himself one of the greatest rappers of all time. He recently collaborated with Eminem on a track for the new “Venom” movie soundtrack. The song charted in the Billboard Hot 100.

Polo is best known for his singles “Finer Things” and “Pop Out” which helped his debut album “Die a Legend” reach #6 on the album chart. Since then, he’s been sidetracked with legal problems. He was also hospitalized in 2019 after a drug overdose. He’s said he has since quit using the offending substances.
