According to a report in the Miami Herald, Polo G’s car was pulled over by officers for “an unspecified traffic infraction.” During his interaction with police, the rapper allegedly “ended up in a struggle” with officers, reportedly striking an one officer in the head multiple times.

Stacia Mac, mother of the 22-year-old rapper, took to Twitter and claimed her son was in the passenger seat when the car was pulled over.

“None of these charges would be possible if the POLICE did not make contact with my son Polo G!!!” she wrote. “He was NOT the driver. He was a PASSENGER in a professionally licensed vehicle with security. He was moving smart and correctly. What more could he have done.”

She continued in some posts she for Instagram Story, which were subsequently shared by The Shade Room.

“They stopped them because they were driving while Black,” Mac said, per The Shade Room, which reposted her videos. “When I go and approach them to ask about my children, namely my minor son who’s 16, they tell us that if we don’t leave that they’re gonna lock us up.”

The Miami Police Department is now reviewing the arrest.

“The department has initiated a review of this incident, which will include an examination of all camera footage to ensure adherence to departmental policy and law,” the department confirmed via Twitter.
