Kodak Black Surrenders to Police After Missing Drug Screening, Released on $250,000 Bond
Kodak Black has turned himself in to authorities after a warrant was issued for his arrest when the rapper recently failed to show up for a mandatory drug screening.
On Monday (June 26), Kodak Black had a hearing in Broward County Court to face a judge after a warrant was issued for his arrest for skipping out on a drug test. Kodak was taken into custody and released following an alteration of his bond and bond conditions.
Kodak Black's attorney Bradford Cohen has released the following statement to XXL about the rapper's rearrest.
"I requested that he be released from pretrial conditions and substitute a higher bond the judge granted my request," Cohen said. "His bond was [set] at the standard bond and pretrial conditions were deleted. We did a jail walk through where he posted an additional [$175,000] and he was released in under and hour. The purpose of the request was so he could go on tour and not have to call 3 times a week and be subject to oppressive supervision while waiting for the case to end."
The Broward County Sheriff's Office has confirmed Kodak Black, government name Bill Kapri, was booked and released. The additional amount bumps Kodak's bond up to $250,000.
