DaBaby has once again found himself in legal trouble after being arrested on Friday, January 3 outside of the Novotel hotel in the Brickell area of Miami, Florida. DaBaby was detained by the Miami Police Department before being arrested on a battery charge, according to local outlet 10 News.
The reports state DaBaby was taken to police headquarters in connection to a robbery investigation.
DaBaby is being held at the Turner Guilfield Knight Correctional Center in Miami without bond and will remain behind bars until he is presented before a judge. DaBaby was held without bond because of a fugitive arrest warrant in Texas.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, the victim in the alleged robbery is a concert promoter. We’re told he was meeting up with DaBaby and his crew to pay for a gig, and the rapper believed the promoter shorted him by several thousand dollars. As one source put it, “Things just went out of control.”
DaBaby allegedly robbed the victim of $80, a credit card, and then doused him with apple juice … according to the police report, obtained by TMZ. The rapper also allegedly took the victim’s iPhone 7. As we reported, the dispute occurred after DaBaby felt the victim — a concert promoter — had shorted him.
The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, is scheduled to appear in court on Friday morning.
