Kodak Black May Have Yet Another Legal Case on His Hands

He’s reportedly facing more legal trouble in his Florida hometown.

Published April 6, 2017

Kodak Black has had a refreshing start since being released on bail in November, restructuring some of his music’s messages, lending a hand to fellow inmates and recently releasing the well-received Painting Pictures album.

But despite things looking up in promising ways for the Project Baby, his luck with legal obstacles isn't. 

As reported by the Sun Sentinel, new assault allegations against Kodak have come to the forefront from a woman who is accusing him of punching and kicking her at a Miami-Dade strip club.

While no formal charges have been made just yet, the Sun Sentinel adds that a police report from the day of the alleged incident was discovered and marks the case as open. According to the report, 34-year-old Jennifer Cunningham, who works at the club, told police that Kodak “approached her and started acting belligerent” around 3 a.m. on Feb. 2. After attempting to back him off, she reportedly said that he hit her in the forehead with his right arm and began a punching and kicking fit. When she came back to work later on that night at 8 p.m., the Sun Sentinel points out, she called the police to report it.  

From the police report, Kodak may possibly face misdemeanor battery charges. Even though he has not officially been charged, the Florida Department of Corrections will use the incident in their accusations against him for violation of house arrest.

As Kodak is still facing other legal woes such as a sexual battery charge from South Carolina and a house arrest violation, an April 19 violation hearing will decide when (or if) he will be released.
