Rapper Kodak Black Arrested For Cocaine Possession

Kodak Black has run afoul of the law once again, being arrested in Florida on charges of cocaine possession, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, and improperly stopping or parking a vehicle.

The 26-year-old rapper (real name Bill Kapri), was booked into a county jail in Plantation, FL.

He also received a traffic violation for obstructing the road. The arrest occurred after the Florida Highway Patrol allegedly saw a black Bentley SUV blocking a roadway.

The police said they found the rapper asleep at the wheel and smelled the strong odor of cannabis.

Awakened, Black admitted to the weed in the SUV. But police also noticed a Styrofoam cup that he believed contained an alcoholic beverage. When Black exited the vehicle, police say they saw a white powder fall to the ground from the musician.

Field tests allege the substance was cocaine, although Kodak said the substance was Percocet.

The arrest is the latest run-in with the law for Black, who was pardoned by former President Donald Trump after he was sentenced to prison in 2020 for making a false statement to buy a firearm. He served about half of his three-year term.

Closer to L.A., Justin Bieber and Kodak Black are among those being sued by two men who claim they were struck by bullets outside of a West Hollywood after-party held last year.

The shooting occurred after a private Bieber concert for A-listers.  Two men claim they were shot and severely injured in the February 2022 shooting outside The Nice Guy venue following the party.

The lawsuit claims Kodak Black was largely to blame for instigating the shooting, which came as he was exiting the venue. Black himself was identified as one of the three people shot.
