Feds Put Kodak Black On House Arrest For Violating His Supervised Release

Days after Kodak Black was arrested on suspicion of possessing and trafficking Oxycodone by a Florida highway patrolman, a federal judge has placed him on home detention and ordered him to wear an ankle monitor, court records show.

At a Wednesday federal court appearance, Kodak Black agreed to a $225,000 surety bond. U.S. Magistrate Judge Jonathan Goodman ordered him to submit to drug testing, wear a GPS ankle monitor, and remain at home unless for medical reasons, court appearances, or employment.

He is required to give 48 hours notice before concerts and to ask his supervising officer for permission to leave home for other reasons. The court order also says “no studio events” unless approved by a judge in advance.

Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was arrested on July 15 in Broward County on suspicion of possessing 31 prescription painkillers. County prosecutors promptly filed two criminal charges against him, and he was released on $75,000 bail.

But now, federal prosecutors in Southern Florida have moved to violate Kodak Black’s supervised release from his 2019 conviction for making a false statement in order to obtain a firearm. Kodak Black’s four-year prison term was commuted by then-President Donald Trump in 2020, but he remains on supervised release until 2024.

The supervised release terms require him to avoid drug use and obey all laws. Now that federal prosecutors have charged him, he could be sentenced to more jail time, an extended supervised release period, or both.

“There are always additional facts and circumstances that give rise to a defense, especially in this case,” his lawyer Bradford tweeted. “We will get him a bond today and move forward with resolving the matter quickly.”
