Kodak Black was arrested and charged with possessing a weapon and marijuana, New York State Police have confirmed. The arrest was made on Wednesday evening while crossing the Queenston–Lewiston Bridge, an arch bridge that crosses the Niagara River, as the rapper attempted to re-enter the country from Canada. He was scheduled to perform in Boston at the House Of Blues that night but failed to show.
With sincere apologies, due to unforeseen circumstances, the Kodak Black shows have been postponed. New dates will be announced as soon as possible.— House of Blues Boston (@HOBBoston) April 18, 2019
A statement from New York State Police says Kodak, real name Bill K. Kapri, was stopped alongside a number of others in two vehicles. A search of his Cadillac Escalada resulted in the discovery of a Glock 9mm. Kodak, along with at least two other suspects, were detained in Niagara County Jail and remains in custody on a $20,000 cash bond or $40,000 bond.
