Kodak Black Arrested For Possession Of Drugs And Trafficking In South Florida

According to many media sources, Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was charged on Friday with trafficking oxycodone and possessing a dangerous narcotic.

The Florida Highway Patrol stopped Black because he was operating a purple Dodge Durango with window tinting that “appeared to be darker than the legal limit,” according to CNN. Black’s driver’s licence and car registration were reportedly found to be both expired by the time the police arrived. According to the Associated Press, cops searched the car after smelling marijuana and discovered roughly $75,000 in cash and a tiny plastic bag with 31 oxycodone tablets.

Black’s lawyer Bradford Cohen tells People in a statement that Black was freed on a $75,000 bond on Saturday and that they “will move forward with resolving the matter quickly. Never judge a case based on an arrest.” The statement added, “There are facts and circumstances that give rise to a defence, especially in this case.” The musician has had run-ins with the authorities in the past, including accusations that he attacked a teenage girl in February 2016.

Later, Black agreed to a bargain to admit to first-degree assault and battery in exchange for having his sentence reduced from 10 years in prison to 18 months on probation. Before former President Donald Trump commuted Black’s sentence on his final day in office in January 2021, he was sentenced to nearly half of a four-year jail term on various weapons and narcotics crimes. Black was described as “a prominent artist and community leader” by the former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany at the time.

Black was most recently detained for trespassing in the early hours of New Year’s Day in his hometown of Pompano Beach, Florida. Deputies reportedly “made contact with Bill Kapri,” a.k.a. Kodak Black, in Golden Acres, Florida, close to where he grew up in Pompano Beach, at about 1:30 a.m. local time, according to the report. According to reports, Black was freed on bail from Broward Main Jail.

Kodak Black is one of the performers scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival 2022, which begins on Friday. On July 24, he is slated to perform. More than 30 million songs have been sold by Black, who has also had a series of huge hits, including his most recent, “Super Gremlin,” which climbed to number three on the Billboard Hot 100 this year and had a DJ David Guetta remix released earlier in the year.
