Kodak Black Accuses Cops & Media Of Violating His Rights With Leaked Arrest Photo

Kodak Black has a laundry list of legal issues that he has to tend to at this point. The rapper was arrested over the weekend for allegedly falsifying paperwork to obtain a firearm. Although information about his arrest was initially scarce, his arrest was confirmed after a photo of him shackled up surfaced online. According to Bossip, he's taking aim at the police and the media for using his image to brag about arresting a high profile artist.

The rapper filed documents in court accusing the media and law enforcement of violating his constitutional rights after a photo of him leaked online at the Miami-Dade police station. Kodak claimed that there was not a single reason for a photo of himself to surface online except for the police to make a "big spectacle" and gain bragging rights.

According to Kodak, the release of his photo was “for the purpose of creating a news spectacle in showcasing a Grammy-nominated artist shackled and in custody for all to see." He added, “Quite simply, there was no law enforcement or security rationale, and this was nothing more than a personal frolic for law enforcement to posture.”

At this point, a judge hasn't ruled on the motion. Kodak Black wants the police and the media to be banned from distributing any photos of him without law enforcement or security purpose.
