Rapper Kodak Black has been arrested on drug charges in Florida

Rapper Kodak Black has been arrested in Florida and charged with drug offenses, authorities said Friday.

Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said in a statement that the arrest was made at approximately 4:30 a.m., when troopers spotted a purple Dodge Durango, which appeared to be darker than legally licensed and had an expired registration.

When they stopped the vehicle, troopers “obtained a strong odor of raw marijuana coming from the interior of the vehicle,” the statement said. Upon searching the Durango, troopers found a bag containing 31 white tablets, which they later identified as oxycodone. More than $74,000 in cash was found in the vehicle, authorities said.

The driver’s name is 25-year-old Bill K. Capri, who performs under the name Kodak Black. Kapri, whose license was found to have expired more than 30 days ago, was arrested and taken to the Broward County Jail.

Capri was charged with trafficking oxycodone and possession of a controlled substance, the Associated Press reported.

Capri’s attorney told the public on Twitter to “never judge a case based on an arrest,” writing that, “there are always additional facts and circumstances that give rise to a defense, especially in this case.”

“We will get him a bond today and move forward with resolving the matter quickly,” his attorney said.
