FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Dieuson Octave -- better known as rapper Kodak Black -- is fighting back.
When the 20-year-old rapper was arrested, officers with the Broward Sheriff's Office gang unit reported finding a stolen gun from Tamarac in his office and another gun in his safe. He doesn't live alone, and he also had several friends coming in and out of the home.
The officers reported an Instagram video showing teens smoking marijuana and "recklessly" playing with a gun near his son at his home prompted them to get a search warrant and raid his home.
"Not only rolling a marijuana cigarette, but blowing it right there in front of the child's face," said Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Attorney Bradford M. Cohen, who is is representing Octave, filed a notice of taking depositions Friday to question three deputies in the raid Feb. 8. Octave, who remained in Broward County jail in Fort Lauderdale, claims that the stolen gun that officers found was not his.
After his Jan. 18 arrest, Broward County Judge Joel Lazarus denied Octave's bond. He appeared in court for a probation hearing Monday. He faces charges of grand theft of a firearm, two counts of possession of a weapon or ammunition by a felon, suspicion of committing child neglect and two counts of violating of probation.
