Kodak Black was allegedly arrested early Thursday afternoon in South Florida. You can see footage of the arrest below, where a black male who fits Kodak’s description is cuffed and put into the back of a police SUV.
Onlookers were on the scene and yelling out his nickname “Project Baby” as he was being arrested.

There is no word on what he was arrested for but it could be related to a robbery/false imprisonment charge from 2015. We will update the story when any new news becomes available.
UPDATE: According to Local 10, Kodak was arrested for multiple weapon & drug charges.
Police say they witnessed Kodak Black engaging in what they believed to be a drug deal with two other men. When police approached the men, Kodak allegedly attempted to flee in his car, but was blocked by the police vehicle.
Kodak and another man, Wisdom Williams, were able to leave the scene and fled away at a high rate of speed. The following police pursuit saw Kodak run through multiple red lights at excessive speeds.
The chase finally ended when Kodak parked his car at 2017 Jackson Street in Hollywood, where police observed him throwing a black-colored firearm into a dumpster.
The police report states that both Kodak and Williams were uncooperative and failed to follow instructions when told by police to show their hands. Police also indicated they detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the car.
After the arrests, police searched the dumpster and found a loaded Glock 23 pistol and a 30-round magazine of ammunition. Another magazine was found in the center console of the vehicle.
Kodak has been charged with possession of a weapon or ammo by a felon, possession of cannabis/synthetic cannabis less than 20 grams, fleeing/eluding a law enforcement officer at high speed, and disobeying a traffic device.
UPDATE 2: He’s free!
