While inside the home, Pager said DaBaby warned him not to call the police. “[DaBaby] appears to think he’s a real tough guy,” the lawsuit read. “[DaBaby] is wrong.”

DaBaby and his group fled the scene before police arrived at Pager’s home. The homeowner said the rapper damaged his property to the tune of thousands.

Earlier this year, the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office charged DaBaby with felony battery over the incident. The case is pending.
