BROCKTON, Mass. — Police in Brockton, Mass., have asked state child welfare officials to investigate possible child abuse or neglect in the case of a 9-year-old who appears in sexually suggestive rap videos.

Police said Monday they haven't filed criminal charges or arrested the father of fourth grader Luie Rivera Jr., who goes by the stage name Lil Poopy. A Department of Children and Families spokeswoman confirms that officials are investigating whether the boy is being properly cared for.

The videos show the boy slapping a woman's buttocks, engaging in sexually suggestive dances and glorifying drug use and materialism.

Police started investigating after the local newspaper, The Enterprise, did a story on the boy.

The boy's father, Luis Rivera, told the newspaper his son is acting and not doing anything wrong.
