In April 2016, Kapri was arrested in Hallandale Beach, Florida and charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, and fleeing from officers.

The following month, he was arrested in Broward County, Florida and charged with armed robbery and false imprisonment. He was detained in custody. In August 2016, he appeared in court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Several executives from Atlantic Records attended the court; vice-president Michael Kushner commented:

"Black has a bright future as a recording artist".

Kapri pleaded no contest to all charges and under a plea agreement was to be placed on house arrest for one year, have five years probation, perform community service as required, and take anger management classes. He would also be permitted to tour internationally.

Prior to his release from Broward Main Jail, police discovered two outstanding criminal warrants, the first from Florence, South Carolina alleging felony criminal sexual conduct, the second from St. Lucie County, Florida alleging two counts of misdemeanor marijuana possession.

In September 2016, Kapri was charged for two misdemeanor drug charges and was sentenced to four months in jail, also he was suspended from driving for one year.

With no doubts again in 2017, Kodak got arrested for violation of his probation, in addition to it, he was indicted by a grand jury in South California on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

In 2018, he faced multiple charges, while Kodak has been said to be facing criminal sexual conduct charges and will be facing up to a maximum of 30 years in prison.

Keeping all the past events of Kodak Black inconsideration, it can be said that Kodak has been the man who not even has done great in his career but also has set the mark of having a large number of controversies, arrests, and criminal events.

Thus, Black now is staring down the possibility of missing more shows on his tour "Driving To Live", that can hamper his career to some extent.
