Details regarding his detainment were muddy last night when a video appeared to show the North Carolina native being handcuffed and led by a police officer. It was reported that members of his entourage had been involved in a robbery and now, things are finally coming to light.
In an update provided by TMZ, it was noted that DaBaby and his crew were angry after meeting up with a concert promoter, believing that he had stiffed them of money that was owed for a performance. The promoter allegedly handed Baby $20K but the rapper claims he required $30K to perform a show that night. When things got out of control, Baby and his team reportedly robbed the promoter of $80, a credit card, and his iPhone 7 before pouring apple juice over him. A second victim, who has been unidentified, was apparently also punched in the face.
