CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte rapper DaBaby took to Twitter following his arrest earlier this week accusing Charlotte Mecklenburg police of targeting and harassing him.
In the Tweet he says, "someone died last night while the police department was wasting resources and officers to harrass me in an attempt to make a bad example out of me."
The rapper, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, goes on to say that he's one of the most positive examples of the city of Charlotte and the youth in the area.
Back in 2018, he was arrested in connection to a shooting incident involving a man who was shot and killed at a Walmart in Huntersville. After a key witness didn't show up in court, the charges were dropped and he was released.
DaBaby was arrested after his concert at the Bojangles Coliseum Monday night. He was given two citations for possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.
DaBaby also held a toy giveaway on Monday before his arrest, according to social media.
The rapper is nominated for two Grammy Awards and is set to perform during Super Bowl Week in Miami in 2020.
CMPD has launched an internal investigation into this incident.
