The rapper Kodak Black was arrested on a trespassing charge on Saturday in south Florida.

The Broward county sheriff’s office said Black was taken into custody in his hometown of Pompano Beach early on Saturday morning, according to the South Florida SunSentinel.

Investigators did not immediately release details about what prompted the arrest.

Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, posted bond and was released, the paper reported. Neither his publicist nor his attorney immediately returned an emailed request for comment.

Black had a three-year federal prison sentence for falsifying documents used to buy weapons at a Miami gun store commuted by Donald Trump on his last day in office in 2020. He had served about half his sentence.

He was sentenced to probation last April for assaulting a teenage girl in a South Carolina hotel room. Black was charged with rape but accepted a deal and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.

Black has sold more than 30m singles, several multiplatinum and platinum-certified, among them Zeze, No Flockin’ and Roll in Peace.
