Kodak Black Released from Jail After Weed and Gun Bust, Hides His Face With a Wad of Cash: ‘No Comment’

Kodak Black is now out of jail after he was arrested on Wednesday at the U.S. border. He also used a pretty inventive way to hide his face from cameras and fans on the way out.

As reported, the 21-year-old, who was given the name Dieuson Octave at birth, was driving a Cadillac Escalade to a show in Boston but got stopped at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge between Canada and New York State.

Officers then found a Glock 9mm handgun in the vehicle, as well as weed. Afterwards, Black was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Stetson President and Madarrow Smith, two other men who were in the car with the rapper, were also busted on weapons charges, as was Jeantony Saintmelus, who was traveling in a Porsche with weapons and marijuana as well.

All four men then saw a judge in Lewiston Court and afterwards they were taken to Niagara County Jail. But Black was released on Thursday after he posted a $20,000 cash bond, while his co-defendants remained behind bars.

The rapper was then seen walking out of jail with his attorney, where he shielded his face after some fans tried to engage him. But besides saying “No comment,” the Florida-raised artist kept silent and got into an waiting vehicle.

It’s also been reported that Black blamed a GPS on the arrest, because he used it to plan his route as he drove from Detroit to Boston, where his show was.

But unbeknownst to the rapper, the GPS took him through Canada and he didn’t know it until he was stopped at the country’s border, then asked for his passport.

Then once he tried to get back on U.S. soil at the New York border he was busted along with the other men.

They’ll all be due in court this coming May, but meanwhile, there is no word on how Black’s latest arrest will affect his bond stemming from his 2016 sexual assault charges in South Carolina.
