He may be enjoying his freedom now, but just 24 hours ago Kodak Black was behind bars after being arrested at the border. He was scheduled to perform at the House of Blues in Boston, but after he didn’t show up with his entourage, his team considered him to be missing. However, they later tracked Kodak down and on Thursday he was released from jail after posting bond.
TMZ now reports that Kodak has quite the excuse for why he found himself on the wrong side of the law. According to the publication, they’ve been told that Kodak claims he put the location into his GPS and followed the directions from Detroit to Boston. The route took him north, across the border, through Canada, into New York, and finally ending in Massachusetts. He allegedly wasn’t aware of the specifics, not knowing that he was leaving the United States. That revelation apparently hit him when he reached the border and was asked to show his passport.

At that point, Kodak and friends were able to cross and decided to stick to the route since they’d made it that far. The trouble came when they attempted to re-enter the U.S. at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge in New York. Cops searched his Cadillac Escalade and found a pistol and marijuana, while the Porsche traveling with them was found to have three loaded handguns and more Mary Jane.
Kodak paid his $20K cash bond and was snapped by the paparazzi leaving the jail, covering his face with cash. Although his Boston concert Wednesday and his Connecticut show Thursday were canceled, his performance on Friday in Philadelphia is set to go on as scheduled.
