Update: Rapper DaBaby has gotten released from Jail amid battery charge
Grammy-nominated rapper, DaBaby has been released from jail after a warrant for his arrest was withdrawn.
The American rapper whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, was arrested on a battery charge on Thursday night in Miami after arguing with a music promoter over payment for performance, Miami police said in an arrest warrant.
After police arrested the rapper, they found a warrant for his arrest from Texas, also on a battery charge.
Thursday’s incident began at Novotel Miami Brickell, where Kirk was staying. He approached the music promoter, who said he’d made an agreement with the rapper to perform at Cafe Iguana in nearby Pembroke Pines, the arrest report said.
The man told police he gave Kirk $30,000 but when the rapper counted it he claimed it was $10,000 short. When Kirk demanded the money, an argument broke out and Kirk punched a man who was with the music promoter.
The promoter also told investigators that one of the men with Kirk took his cellphone, a bank card and $80 in cash.
Officials say that Texas warrant has been withdrawn and Kirk was released on Saturday, January 4, 2020
