Kodak Black has been arrested in south Florida. The rapper was taken into custody for allegedly violating his probation, and it’s on some serious charges. Read on for more details!
Kodak Black, 19, was arrested in Broward County, Florida on February 28, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s office. The up and coming rapper was arrested at the courthouse on “violation of community control”, or parole violation charges. How he allegedly violated his parole is quite shocking.
According to the warrant for his arrest, Kodak, real name Dieuson Octave, violated his parole by “failing to remain confined to his approved residence except for one half hour before and after approved employment, public service work, or any other special activities approved by the officer […] on various times and dates, as evidenced from the pictures on video showing the offender at various places that were not approved.”
He apparently also violated probation, according to a report by XXL, by “failing to successfully complete an Anger Management Program and be responsible for the payment of any costs incurred while receiving said treatment, unless waived.” His probation officer “states the offender was instructed to attend the Anger Management Program at 5th Street Counseling Center, and on 2/14/2017, he was unsuccessfully discharged from this program.”
At this time, Kodak is being held in the Broward County main jail without bond while awaiting trial. It’s unclear what sentencing he would receive for violating his probation, but “violation of community control” appears to be classified as a felony on his arrest record. Kodak had been previously sentenced to five years probation and one year of house arrest in St. Lucie Florida for a May 2016 arrest, on charges that included strong armed robbery, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm.
Prior to that, he was charged in February 2016 with sexual battery in South Carolina. He was extradited to SC in November 2016 and jailed, and posted a $100,000 bail in December 2016.
