He was released from Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Saturday afternoon with bond set at $19,500.

Polo G and his entourage were driving back from a party celebrating the release of his third album, ‘Hall Of Fame’, which was released Friday (June 11) via Columbia.

“None of these charges would be possible if the POLICE did not make contact with my son Polo G!!!” she wrote.
