Kodak Black’s Drug Possession Charge Dismissed

Lyndon Abioye |

Kodak Black’s drug possession charge was dismissed Friday, two months after he was arrested for cocaine possession.

The rapper was arrested after police found him in his vehicle with white powder on him. He was arrested for cocaine possession but further testing proved the white powder was oxycodone, which the rapper has a prescription for.

Broward County Circuit Judge Barbara Duffy ruled prosecutors could not show proof that the rapper did not have a oxycodone prescription filled by a pharmacy.

“This is an abuse of discretion to file a charge on an individual that has provided a valid prescription for the very item that as found,” Bradford Cohen, Yak’s attorney, told XXL in a statement at the time. “All this after the officer misrepresented and said it was cocaine. Clearly it was not cocaine, nothing has happened to the officer who misrepresented the item, and my client was taken into custody due to his misrepresentation.”

He added, “The fact that this case has not been dismissed by the Broward State Attorney’s Office shows that bias against Mr. Kapri. Anyone else would have had their case dismissed or they wouldn’t have filed.”
