Arrest warrant for Kodak Black : the rapper was allegedly tested positive for fentanyl

Rap­per Kodak Black has been issued an arrest war­rant in Flori­da after he failed to show up for a drug test before test­ing pos­i­tive for fentanyl.

The order, issued Thurs­day by a Broward Coun­ty cir­cuit judge, was revealed by mul­ti­ple media out­lets over the week­end, includ­ing TMZ.

It’s unclear if Black, who wrote “Super Grem­lin,” one of the most-played songs on Bill­board­’s Hot 100 chart last year, was due to appear. His attor­ney did not imme­di­ate­ly respond to a request for comment.

The Broward Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s Office request­ed a war­rant for Black, also known as Bill Capri, for fail­ing to show up for a drug test that was sup­posed to be admin­is­tered on Feb­ru­ary 3 by the test­ing ser­vice com­pa­ny he contracted.

Accord­ing to the sher­if­f’s affi­davit, Black under­went a late test on Feb­ru­ary 8 and test­ed pos­i­tive for fentanyl.

The test was request­ed as part of his bail for an alleged oxy­codone traf­fick­ing case. As part of the arrest war­rant, his release was revoked.

Flori­da High­way Patrol offi­cers said they found 31 oxy­codone tablets in his car when he was stopped in July for alleged­ly ille­gal­ly tint­ing his car windows.

Black, who alleged­ly resides in Mira­mar, Fla., has plead­ed not guilty.

Oxy­codone and fen­tanyl are syn­thet­ic opi­oids, both of which are legal when prop­er­ly pre­scribed or admin­is­tered in a med­ical setting.

Ille­gal fen­tanyl, said to be many times more potent than hero­in, floods the US-Mex­i­co bor­der and is wide­ly blamed for over­dos­es in the Unit­ed States.

Black has come under police scruti­ny in recent years. He was arrest­ed on New Year’s Day 2022 in the Pom­pano Beach area of Flori­da on sus­pi­cion of tres­pass­ing. Pros­e­cu­tors dropped charges.

Weeks lat­er, Black was shot and wound­ed out­side a night­club in Los Ange­les. Brad­ford Cohen, Black­’s attor­ney, said that when Black had his leg cut off in the shoot­ing, he came to the aid of the per­son who had been the tar­get of the unpro­voked attack.

In 2019, he spent three and a half years in fed­er­al prison for pro­vid­ing false infor­ma­tion to the gov­ern­ment on firearms doc­u­men­ta­tion. In 2020, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump reduced his remain­ing prison term with about half remaining.

Accord­ing to the Fort Laud­erdale Sun Sen­tinel, Black is a promi­nent South Flori­da-based phil­an­thropist who paid for the col­lege expens­es of the chil­dren of two mur­dered FBI agents and has helped police in South Car­oli­na. He paid for the funer­al expens­es of a gov­ern­ment offi­cial and donat­ed $100,000 to the Nova South­east Uni­ver­si­ty Law School in mem­o­ry of the vic­tims of the Mar­jo­ry Stone­man Dou­glas High School shooting.
