Robbery case: DaBaby to remain in jail – Miami court

DaBaby has been ordered to remain in jail due to an outstanding warrant in Texas.

The rapper was arrested on January 2 and has been in custody at the Turner Guilfield Knight Correctional Center in Miami.

According to Local 10, the Baby on Baby rapper will be held without bond because of an arrest warrant issued in Texas. He will remain behind bars until he sees a judge sometime.

According to a police report obtained by XXL on Friday, Jan. 3, DaBaby was detained by the Miami Police Department on Thursday outside the Novotel hotel in Brickell section of Miami.

Speaking with Miami’s Local 10 news outlet, Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat told the local news outlet that the Kirk rapper was taken into police headquarters to be questioned regarding a robbery investigation. He was officially arrested on a battery charge that day. In the police report, a detective writes that the conflict started on Thursday afternoon, Jan. 2, at the hotel after one of the victims, a concert promoter, was $10,000 short on a $30,000 payment he and DaBaby had agreed to for a performance at Cafe Iguanas Pines the same day.

That victim, identified in the police report as Victim 1, claims that a “verbal altercation” ensued before DaBaby punched a second victim, identified as Victim 2, in the face. From there, Victim 1 says DaBaby’s team stepped in and robbed the promoter.

In the police report, DaBaby’s team is accused of stealing Victim 1’s credit card, his iPhone 7 and $80. The men with DaBaby apparently also covered the victim in apple juice.

Authorities say DaBaby and his team fled in a black SUV. At 4:50 p.m., DaBaby returned to the Novotel hotel lobby where Victim 1 identified him as the person who attacked Victim 2.

Prior to DaBaby’s arrest, cell phone footage of a robbery allegedly involving the rapper’s team surfaced. The video allegedly shows DaBaby’s team robbing the promoter.

Below is a video of DaBaby in court where a judge said he’ll remain in jail due to an outstanding warrant in Texas.

After the questioning, he was arrested for battery in connection to the robbery investigation. His bond has been set at $1,500.

According to TMZ, the victim in the alleged robbery is a concert promoter, who was meeting up with DaBaby and his crew to pay for a gig, but the rapper believed the promoter cheated him by several thousand of dollars and things went out of control.
