Rapper Kodak Black is facing weapons charges after the rapper was arrested just prior to his set at Rolling Loud Miami — he is accused of lying about his criminal history when filling out an application to purchase a gun, but his attorneys claim he simply misunderstood the form. On Wednesday, a federal judge revoked the rapper's bond and sent him to jail as he awaits trial, according to a report by CBS 10.

Judge Federico Moreno, who presides over the case, reportedly called Kodak Black "a danger to the community" during the hearing. Moreno had previously granted Black's release on $550,000 bond on March 15, but reversed his decision on Wednesday after an appeal from the state.

Kodak Black could face a trial in the weapons case this summer. He has plead not guilty. He faces a number of other, unrelated cases including gun and drug charges stemming from an incident at the United States border, and a sexual assault trial in South Carolina.

The FADER has reached out to Kodak Black's representative for more information.
