Rapper Kodak Black arrested on weapons, child neglect charges

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Rapper Kodak Black, best known for singles "No Flockin" and "Tunnel Vision," has been ordered held without bail in Florida on seven felony charges that include child neglect and drug possession.  

The Broward Sheriff's Office arrested the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, on Thursday. During a hearing Friday, Judge Joel Lazarus ordered him held in jail because he was already on probation.

Jail records show Octave was booked into jail Thursday night. He's charged with two counts of probation violation, grand theft of a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, marijuana possession and child neglect, reports CBS affiliate WPEC. No further details were immediately available.

A lawyer for Octave wasn't listed on jail records.

Octave is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a Florence, South Carolina, hotel room in 2016. 

He has been jailed several times in Broward County after violating terms of his house arrest, the station reports.
