There was something fishy about Kodak Black’s recent arrest. At least that’s what the rapper’s lawyer believes.
According to TMZ, attorney Bradford Cohen has filed legal documents in an effort to depose three officers involved with the home raid that resulted in Kodak’s arrest earlier this month. The lawyer is reportedly questioning the legitimacy of his client’s charges, and wants to know why there is no body cam footage of the sweep. Cohen also wants to find out why the gang task force was involved with the arrest.
On Jan. 18, authorities stormed Kodak’s Florida home after they found out he was engaging in illegal activity during an Instagram Live broadcast. The video allegedly captured the “Tunnel Vision” rapper and his entourage rolling joints and handling a firearm. Kodak’s infant child also appeared in the broadcast.
After officers secured a warrant, they raided Kodak’s home and reportedly found 95 grams of weed, a loaded Glock, and a stolen Beretta handgun. The raid, which was captured on Instagram Live, ended with Kodak in handcuffs. The Florida rapper was booked on seven charges, including drug possession, child neglect, grand theft of a firearm, and parole violation.
Kodak was denied bail and will remain behind bars until his next court hearing, which is scheduled for Feb. 23. He is also facing a number of charges stemming from a 2016 incident in which he allegedly raped a teenage girl inside a hotel room in South Carolina. Kodak was indicted on first-degree sexual assault charges in 2017. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison.
