Kodak Black is on probation

Like Meek Mill, Kodak Black was on probation when he was arrested.  Broward Judge Joel Lazarus ordered for the rapper to stay in jail until his lawyer can make a request in front of a trial judge.  Kodak’s lawyer, Taylor McIntyre also represents rapper, Tay-K.  This won’t be an easy case for McIntyre.  Kodak was arrested on several felony charges.

7 Felony Charges

In the video above, you can hear the rapper complaining about his $800 phone being impounded.  Kodak’s iPhone X should be the last thing on his mind.  He was arrested in Florida on seven felony charges:
  1. Grand theft of a firearm
  2. Child neglect
  3. Possession of marijuana
  4. Possession of a weapon by a felon
  5. Possession of a weapon by a felon
  6. Probation violation
  7. Probation violation
The list above shows Kodak’s charges.  He was arrested on two counts of possession of a weapon by a felon along with two counts of probation violation.  Fans immediately clapped back at Kodak’s charges, arguing that he’s a good father who takes care of his son.  
Kodak might be a good father but he’s also a convicted felon.  A good father wouldn’t risk his freedom because a good father understands that he needs to stay out of jail to continue to be in his child’s life.
The following tweet reveals that Kodak’s brother, John Wicks was also arrested:
