6:56 AM PT — 1/3 — 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.
According to the police report, the promoter handed DaBaby $ 20k but DaBaby said he was owed $ 30k for a concert he was supposed to perform on Thursday. According to the police report, a second victim was punched in the face.
10:29 PM PT — DaBaby has been arrested for battery in connection to the robbery investigation. His bond has been set at $ 1,500.
8:00 PM PT — 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 got hauled away in handcuffs, and it’s because cops want to hear what he has to say about a robbery … TMZ has learned.
The rapper’s been taken to police headquarters in Miami for questioning by detectives regarding a robbery Thursday around 12:30 PM. Seven cop cars were on hand when DaBaby was cuffed.
Check out the video of the alleged robbery. You see some guys — we’re told they are members of DaBaby’s crew — jumping a man and apparently taking his money and possibly some other property as well.
It’s been a rough run for DaBaby … he was just arrested last week in Charlotte, North Carolina after he performed at the Bojangles’ Coliseum. He was cited for marijuana possession, but he claims he was targeted and claimed on social media that police harass him every time he comes to his home state.
He said 15 cops swarmed his vehicle once he left the venue, searched it and found weed. CMPD has launched an Internal Affairs investigation to determine if officers followed department polices during the incident.
DaBaby was also arrested in early 2019 for an alleged attack in November 2018. The rapper allegedly got into a fight with a man inside a Walmart, and the altercation resulted in a man getting shot and killed. DaBaby initially claimed he was threatened and was protecting himself and his kids. He never copped to pulling the trigger.
The rapper was convicted in June of carrying a concealed gun, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation and 30 days in jail … but the jail sentence was suspended.
