Black, whose given name is Bill Kapri, was booked into a jail in Plantation, Florida, on cocaine charges, tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and improperly stopping or parking a vehicle, according to USA Today.

The rapper was arrested by Plantation Police after an officer allegedly saw a black Bentley SUV parked in the road. The officer claims he saw Black asleep in the driver’s seat and smelled a strong odor of burnt cannabis coming from the vehicle, WSVN reported.

According to police reports, officers allegedly found cannabis wrapping paper and residue and later witnessed a white powder falling from Black’s body, WTVJ South Florida reported. A clear plastic bag with a white chunky substance was also allegedly found in Black’s pocket. Officers said field tests allegedly showed the substance was cocaine.

Black has had other run-ins with the law. In 2019, he was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest before a scheduled concert performance.

In January 2020, Black’s sentence was commuted by outgoing President Donald Trump.
