Kodak Black’s Lawyer Questions Suspicious Arrest Procedures [Details]

Rucuss staffJanuary 27, 2018

Kodak Black’s legal team wants to know if his most recent arrest followed proper procedures.

The Pompano Beach rapper was arrested for grand theft of firearms, neglect of a child, and weed possession earlier this month.  The rapper was hit with the charges after his 2-year old child was allegedly seen around drugs and a gun during an Instagram Live stream.

Law enforcement officials caught wind of this and moved on the arrest with a search warrant. They uncovered 94.9 grams of marijuana, a loaded Glock with nine rounds, and a stolen Beretta handgun.

Now, Project Baby’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, is looking to see why there was no body camera footage of the arrest and why it was conducted by a gang task force, according to TMZ. The lawyer has reportedly filed legal documents to take depositions from three officers involved to have those questions answered.

Cohen also questions the treatment of Kodak’s child by law enforcement.

“[The baby was] left on the porch in a diaper and T-shirt staring at his father while he was in handcuffs, and did not get pants or shoes until Kodak’s legal team showed up and demanded the child be taken care of,” Cohen said, according to The Blast. “Why was the boy left out in the cold in nothing but a diaper?”

Cohen also claims that officers didn’t respond to the case until five days later. He argues that they could have responded sooner, if they were truly worried about the infant’s well-being.

Kodak, who was already serving house arrest, was also charged with multiple new charges, including grand theft of a firearm, possession of weapon or ammo by a felon, possession of marijuana, neglect of a child without great bodily harm, and probation violation.

A portion of the arrest was captured on Instagram Live and can be heard below.
