Rapper DaBaby is in police custody for the second time in two weeks, this time for questioning in relation to a robbery.
“BREAKING: We have confirmed that Jonathan Kirk, better known by his stage name DaBaby (@DaBabyDaBaby), has been detained by
@MiamiPD,” Margol tweeted. “He is NOT under arrest at this point but they are questioning him in relation to a robbery investigation. @WPLGLocal10 #DaBaby.”
Margol also shared footage allegedly showing the rapper being detained.
The Grammy-nominee was detained in North Carolina on December 23 just hours after hosting a toy drive, with Charlotte-Mecklenburg police issuing citations to the spitter — real name Jonathan Kirk — for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and resisting an officer.
In December, Kirk told reporters he believes officers unlawfully searched his car while he was performing that night. Video obtained by WCNC-TV shows the rapper being detained in the parking lot. Kirk said officers target him every time he comes to Charlotte, and that his video team had captured footage of their own depicting the incident.
“They follow me, they pull us over for no reason, they search our cars,” Kirk said.
