Kodak Black once again find himself in trouble with the law.

The Miami Herald reports that the “Gnarly” rapper was arrested by federal and local authorities on weapons charges. He was detained shortly before he was scheduled to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami on Saturday.

Update – May 13th: According to an indictment filed in the Southern District of Florida (via TMZ), Kodak Black is accused of knowingly making a false or fictitious statement when attempting to purchase a firearm on two occasions over the last year. Specifically, it seems Kodak failed to acknowledge his past criminal history when filing out the necessary applications. He remains in custody and is currently due back in court on Wednesday.

Update – August 22nd: Kodak Black is expected to plead guilty to the charges.

Last month, Kodak Black was detained at the US-Canadian border after being found possession of a Glock 9mm pistol and marijuana. He was subsequently charged with felony criminal possession of a weapon and a misdemeanor marijuana charge. After posting bail, the rapper famously left the police station by covering his face with hundred dollar bills.
