Rapper DaBaby released from jail amid battery charge

WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Hip-hop artist DaBaby has been released from a South Florida jail after he was arrested on a battery charge.

The musician, whose actual name is Jonathan Kirk, left the Turner Guilford Knight Correction Center in West Miami-Dade, Saturday evening, after a warrant for his arrest from Texas was withdrawn.

City of Miami Police arrested Kirk on Thursday after his alleged involvement in a robbery.

According to investigators, Kirk met with two men who were supposed to pay him $30,000 for a performance in Pembroke Pines but only gave him $20,000.

Police said Kirk punched one of the two men and had his entourage attack the other.

After his arrest, authorities discovered a warrant out for his arrest in Texas for his alleged involvement in organized criminal activity, but those charges were later dropped.

Kirk is expected in court again on Tuesday.
