Brockton rapper Lil Poopy's father arrested
BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- The father of 10-year-old Brockton rapper, Lil Poopy, spoke to 7News about his recent arrest on assault charges.
“They said I assaulted somebody. I said my fallout was in junior high,” said Lil Poopy's father, Luis Rivera.
Rivera said police charged him with assault after a confrontation that happened months ago. But he said he did nothing wrong.
“Are you angry?” asked the reporter. Rivera replied, “No, not at all.”
Brockton police said Rivera was one of two dozen cuffed this week, many of them on various weapons and drugs charges. Rivera’s attorney had an issue with the timing.
“Now what they’ve done is they bumped him in together with the other 25 people who picked up on the drug sweep for an allegation completely unrelated to the drug sweet itself,” said Defense Attorney Joe Krowski, Jr. “To sit on something for three months tells me that they didn’t take it either serious or credible at the time.”
The 30-year-old father is already the focus of a DCF investigation into Lil Poopy’s colorful lifestyle as a rapper, who is seen slapping women on the behind in a music video. Authorities closed their case, but Rivera said this latest bump in the road won’t slow him down.
“My life is a dream. My life has been wonderful…If you haven’t heard about my son you must have been living under a rock,” said Rivera.
The family said they are not worried that another DCF investigation may be launched as a result of this new arrest. Brockton police said they are not commenting to the media at this time.
