Kodak Black To Enter Rehab Facility After Appearing In Court

The Florida rapper reportedly violated the conditions of his pretrial release.

Kodak Black reportedly appeared at the Broward County courthouse Tuesday morning (February 28) after an arrest warrant was issued for him over the weekend.

WPLG reports that an affidavit states the Florida rapper, born Bill Kapri, violated the conditions of his pretrial release. Authorities say he failed to submit to a random drug and alcohol test on February 3.

Per the affidavit, the 25-year-old did take a drug and alcohol test on February 8 that showed a positive result for Fentanyl. This resulted in his release being revoked and an arrest warrant signed by a Broward County judge on February 23.

Kodak Black: Arrest Warrant Issued For Failed Drug Test

On Tuesday, Kodak’s legal team reportedly sought to prevent his detainment, arguing that he has never tested positive for Fentanyl in the past and has sought treatment for addiction to other substances.

Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s attorney, noted that it was also possible that the lab had mixed up his client’s urine sample due to a distracted employee who may have accidentally mismanaged the paperwork or urine samples as he was taking two at a time.

The person who collected the sample testified that it was possible that an error was made, according to WPLG.

Ultimately, the judge ordered that the rapper enter a rehabilitation facility for 30 days as part of his pretrial release. She did grant the defense’s request that he enter the program a week from Tuesday so he can perform at this weekend’s Rolling Loud festival in California as some of the money earned will go to charity.
