Kodak Black's Lawyer Calls NYE Arrest A "Misunderstanding"

Kodak Black was released from prison in 2020 but unfortunately, he ended the year with a brief visit to the police station. At the wee hours of Jan 1st, the rapper was arrested and taken into custody on “trespassing” charges, though he bonded out shortly after. At the time of the arrest, there was little information regarding his brush with the law. However, his lawyer recently explained why the entire ordeal was simply a “misunderstanding.”

Bradford Cohen told TMZ that Yak was pretty much arrested over a “bogus” cease-and-desist letter from 4 months ago. Yak pretty much went to his old neighborhood of Greenacres where he paid a visit to some old friends and intended to pay off the Christmas credit card debts of five families. Police ultimately showed up in the area where they took Kodak into custody over a letter sent by the Housing Authority. Apparently, Kodak Black was banned from entering the area after gifting families A/C units in September 2021.
