Kodak Black was denied bond in Florida after a judge ruled that the rapper was a “danger to the community.”
According to WPLG Local 10, during a U.S. District Court hearing on Wednesday, May 29, Judge Federico Moreno ruled Black to be a “danger to the community” in Florida.
Earlier in May, U.S. Marshals arrested Black on weapons charges in Miami, just before he was set to perform at the Rolling Loud music festival at Hard Rock Stadium.
Prosecutors say that on two occasions Black had falsified information on federal forms to purchase firearms from a Miami-area gun shop. Black purchased a 9 mm handgun, a .380-caliber handgun and a semiautomatic Mini Draco weapon, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce Brown.
The Sun-Sentinel reported that a judge originally granted Kodak bond for $550,000 with house arrest, but state prosecutors successfully appealed bail citing his previous criminal charges.
In April, Black was arrested near Niagara Falls on drug and weapons charges as he tried to cross from Canada into the U.S.
The Florida rapper, whose real name is Bill K. Kapri, is currently facing several other charges, including grand theft, marijuana possession, child neglect and allegations of rape.
