Rapper Kodak Black was arrested on a charge Saturday in South Florida, authorities said.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said Black was remanded in custody in his hometown of Pompano Beach early Saturday morning, according to South Florida SunSentinel. Investigators did not immediately release details of what prompted the arrest.
Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, later issued the bond and was released, the newspaper reported. Neither his publicist nor his lawyer immediately returned an email request for comment.
Black received a three-year federal prison sentence for forging documents used to buy weapons at a gun shop in Miami commuted by President Donald Trump on his last day in office in 2020. He had served about half of his sentence.
He later became one sentenced to probation April last year for assaulting a teenage girl in a hotel room in South Carolina. Black was initially charged with rape, but accepted an agreement and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.
Black has sold over 30 million singles and has had several multiplatinum and platinum certified singles, including “Zeze”, “No Flockin ‘” and “Roll in Peace”.
