Kodak Black Faces New Drug Charges Amid Ongoing Legal Battles

Published:

Renowned rapper Kodak Black, legal name Bill Kapri, finds himself entangled in another legal dispute as he was arrested on Wednesday, December 6, in Plantation, Florida. The charges include possession of cocaine and tampering with physical evidence. As the rapper awaits his appearance before a judge on December 7, details surrounding the arrest remain undisclosed.

This recent arrest compounds Kodak Black’s existing legal challenges. In a previous case, his legal team filed a motion seeking the dismissal of a prescription drug case. In July 2022, the 26-year-old artist was arrested by Florida Highway Patrol during a traffic stop for an alleged tinted window violation. The stop resulted in the discovery of 31 white tablets, suspected to be oxycodone, and nearly $75,000 in cash in his vehicle. Kodak faced charges of possession of a controlled substance and trafficking oxycodone, ultimately securing release on a $75,000 bond.

The recent motion filed on behalf of Kodak Black challenges the legitimacy of the prescription drug case. His attorney contends that the pills discovered during the arrest were not oxycodone, as asserted by the police, but rather Tylenol. The legal team is actively pursuing the dismissal of the entire case. As the rapper navigates these legal hurdles, the outcome of both cases will significantly impact his standing in the music industry and the trajectory of his career.
