[NEWS] Kodak Black Arrested on Drug Charges in Florida



Rapper Kodak Black was arrested Friday during a traffic stop in Florida, the State Highway

Patrol said.


Black, whose real name is Bill K. Kapri, was driving in Fort Lauderdale in a purple Dodge

Durango with an expired license and window tints "which appeared to be darker than the legal limit," police said in a news release. It was also discovered during records checking that the vehicle's registration was expired.


As police searched the car, they found nearly $75,000 in cash and a small clear bag that

contained 31 white tablets of oxycodone, according to highway patrol. Oxycodone is a type of an opioid drug that treats pain and can become highly addictive, according to the CDC.


Black, 25, was taken into custody for charges of possessing a controlled substance without

prescription and trafficking oxycodone at the Broward County Jail, Saturday morning.


Black's attorney, Bradford Cohen, hopes to "move forward" with resolving the rapper's case,

according to his statement on CNN.


"Never judge a case based on an arrest. There are facts and circumstances that give rise to a

defense, especially in this case," said Cohen. "We negotiated a bond of $75,000 and we will

move forward with resolving the matter quickly."


This arrest comes one week before Black is scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud music

festival in Miami. The rapper has been arrested numerous times, most recently on New Year's Day for trespassing.
