In July 2022, Kodak Black was taken into custody in Fort Lauderdale when officers stopped his Dodge Durango for a traffic violation and found more than 30 oxycodone tablets and about $75,000 in cash inside. Police said that he had expired license and tags.
According to his attorney Bradford CohenThe medications that were found during the arrest were legally prescribed. Cohen claimed his client has “battled chronic pain,” a fter being shot in the leg in February of that year, and the painkillers were “essential” to manage his condition.
Moreover, Cohen said that the money found in Kodak’s car was not unlawful and that it is common for famous musicians to get huge sums of cash and require it to fund various tour costs.
Kodak Black was put under house arrest after paying a $225,000 surety bail due to his extensive criminal history, which includes a first-degree assault and battery conviction as well as other drug and weapons crimes.
In addition, a judge mandated that he submit to drug testing, wear an ankle GPS monitor, and stay at home unless necessary for work, medical appointments, or court appearances.
