Officials detained rapper Kodak Black on a trespassing allegation in Florida on Saturday.

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Black was brought into jail early Saturday morning in his hometown of Pompano Beach by the Broward Sheriff's Office. The investigators did not immediately reveal the reason for the arrest.

Black's representatives confirmed the arrest. Sheriff's deputies in Broward County stated they "made contact with Bill Kapri" around 1:30 a.m. ET in the Pompano Beach neighborhood, where Black was born.

NBC News said Black bonded out about 4 a.m. after being taken into prison. After posting the bond, officials subsequently release Black, whose legal name is Bill Kapri.

In a TMZ report, Kapri's lawyer Bradford Cohen stated that the arrest was the consequence of a cease-and-desist notice issued by a local housing authority in Greenacres, Florida in September. According to the letter, the star allegedly caused "disturbances" by filming a music video on residential property and giving out air conditioning units to locals.

Cohen told the outlet that the cease-and-desist letter was not properly served because it was addressed to Kapri's record label rather than him directly. The letter did not state that he couldn't enter the property's premises. According to his lawyer, the rapper returned to the neighborhood to pay off credit card debt for five local families.

President Donald Trump shortened Black's three-year federal prison term for fabricating documents used to buy guns at a Miami gun store. The rapper had completed around half of his sentence.

Last April, he was sentenced to probation for assaulting a teenage girl in a hotel room in South Carolina. At first, Black was charged with rape but agreed to a plea bargain and pleaded guilty to first-degree assault.

Last year, the rapper volunteered to pay for the education expenses of the children of two FBI agents killed while serving a search warrant in Florida, as well as establishing a $100,000 law school scholarship in memory of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.

Officials arrested Kapri while attempting to enter the United States from Canada in April 2019 due to gun and narcotics allegations near Niagara Falls, New York. Kapri was charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and illegal marijuana possession.

U.S. Border and Customs Protection detained Kapri and three others before the police arrested them. After being arraigned in Lewiston, Kapri was arrested and held in the Niagara County Jail on a $20,000/$40,000 cash bond. He was seen in a video heading to a parking lot, seemingly hiding his face with a fan of cash.
