According to Kodak Black's lawyer, the rapper's arrest for cocaine possession was a case of mistaken identity… at least when it comes to the drugs found on him. Kodak attorney Bradford Cohen recently responded to his client's arrest in Florida by saying, “In this most recent case, I believe the 'rock' this officer discovered when tested will be Percocet, not cocaine.” Kodak was detained last week when authorities discovered him asleep behind the wheel of an SUV with a mouthful of white powder, as well as several white rock-like things on the ground… which Kodak claimed was Percocet. The arresting officer tested the gunpowder at the scene and reported that the test was positive for cocaine, but Kodak's lawyer claims that “the test they perform is an alleged search for illegal substances”.

It just turns blue.” Kodak ended up being arrested for possession, tampering with evidence, as well as violating his existing probation… with a traffic ticket issued as a precaution. According to Cohen, the rapper is addicted to pharmaceutical painkillers, mainly Percocet, and his team is working on a treatment plan for him. “He will go through several stages of treatment to get better,” explains Cohen. You must address the root cause of the addiction and that is what will happen. Let’s reduce dependency.” According to Kodak's lawyer, he has been addicted to opiates since he was in prison, when he was allegedly seriously abused by prison authorities.

Rapper Kodak Black's Lawyer Claims Substance Discovered During Drug Bust Was Not Cocaine

Rapper Kodak Black's lawyer has spoken out about his famous client's latest arrest in Florida for alleged cocaine possession. Bradford Cohen criticized the details of the arrest, claiming that the “rock” discovered on Black was Percocet, not cocaine. Cohen further stated that Black became dependent on prescription medication as a result of injuries sustained when he was beaten by prison guards. When discussing his client's recent arrest for narcotics possession in Plantation, Florida, Cohen described his relationship with him, claiming he has represented him since he was a “child.” “A lawyer’s job is rarely easy,” the lawyer wrote. This sentence can be changed to say that the work of a lawyer who cares about your case and your well-being is never simple. I’ve been representing @kodakblack since he was a kid.” Cohen then discussed Black's time in federal prison, as well as how the rapper became addicted to prescription medication as a result of injuries acquired from alleged abuse by prison guards.

“He was beaten so severely by federal prison guards that he was hospitalized.” After we sued the BOP, Kodak told me he would proceed as soon as he was released and asked me to close the case. “Because he was abused while in prison, in addition to being shot, he was prescribed painkillers,” his lawyer explained. We were told that Kodak often carries its prescription medications in a baggie, which can be confused with another substance if it is not labeled. According to our source, that's exactly how he carried the pills in this case. Additionally, he was prescribed meditation after being accused of torture in prison and receiving a gunshot wound. Kodak's lawyer will provide evidence of the culprits in court. Cohen made the remark after Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was charged with possession of cocaine, illegal parking or stopping of a vehicle and forgery or interference with physical evidence.
