Kodak Black Put on House Arrest After Violating Supervised Release
According to court papers, the ‘Super Gremlin’ rapper must stay in his home, where he will be monitored electronically, and he must also undergo drug testing.
AceShowbiz –Kodak Black won’t be going anywhere for a while. The “Super Gremlin” rapper has been placed on house arrest after he was caught violating the terms of his supervised release.
Judge Jonathan Goodman revoked the 25-year-old hip-hop artist’s supervised release and placed him on house arrest on Wednesday, July 20. According to court papers, under stipulations of his new house arrest, he must stay in his home, where he will be monitored electronically. He must also undergo drug testing.
Kodak will be restricted to his home at all times except for reasons deemed medical, court appearances, attorney visits or court-ordered obligations, employment 48 hours in advance notice to perform concerts and events and other activities as pre-approved by the supervising officer. No studio events are allowed unless approved via motion to the court.
The violation came as a result of Kodak being arrested in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on July 15 after police discovered dozens of Oxycodone pills in the rapper’s Dodge Durango during a traffic stop for an illegal tent. He was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and trafficking Oxycodone 14 less than 25 grams. He was released the following day after paying a $75,000 bond.
On July 16, Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, issued the following statement regarding his client’s arrest: “Never judge a case based on an arrest. There are facts and circumstances that give rise to a defense, especially in this case. We negotiated a bond of $75,000 and we will move forward with resolving the matter quickly,” the lawyer stated.
Bradford has since argued that Kodak, whose real name is Bill Kahan Kapri, was prescribed the pills he was in possession of by a doctor in order to deal with chronic pain from being shot earlier this year during a party in Los Angeles and injuries from reportedly being assaulted by guards in prison in 2020.
Kodak was initially placed on supervised release after having his federal gun sentence communicated by outgoing former POTUS Donald Trump in January of 2021. Though freed from prison, the “Tunnel Vision” spitter remains on supervised release until 2024.
