Kodak Black has been arrested after SWAT raided his house.

Arrested for:

– Gun Posession

– Weed Possession

– Child Neglect

Rapper Kodak Black was arrested Thursday in Florida on several felony charges, including grand theft of a firearm and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, jail records show.

The musician, whose real name is Dieuson Octave, remains in custody Friday at the Broward County Main Jail on seven felony charges. In addition to the firearm counts, Octave, 20, is also facing charges of marijuana possession, child neglect and violating his probation, according to jail records.

A judge ordered Octave, who was on probation at the time of his arrest, to be held without bond during a court hearing Friday until his attorney can make another request in front of a trial judge, The Sun-Sentinel reports.

The arrest is the latest legal issue for Octave, who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in a South Carolina hotel room in February 2016. He’s also been in and out of jail in Broward County after violating the terms of his house arrest in a separate case after being released on bond from the Florence County Detention Center in December 2016, according to the newspaper.

Prior to that, Octave was arrested in May 2016 in Fort Lauderdale for armed robbery and false imprisonment charges, the Miami Herald reports. He was also booked a month earlier in April 2016 in Hallandale Beach for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana and fleeing from police officers.

In August 2016, when Octave appeared in court to face a judge in connection to his Fort Lauderdale arrest, executives from Atlantic Records told a judge that Octave had a “bright future” ahead of him as a recording artist. A judge later sentenced him to five years of probation, in addition to house arrest and anger management classes, according to the Miami Herald.

Octave violated the conditions of his house arrest and was arrested again in February 2017, according to the newspaper, after going to a boxing match in Cincinnati and a strip club in Miami, where he allegedly assaulted a bartender. He was later released in June, the Herald reports.

Black, whose debut album “Painting Pictures” was released in March 2017, saw his song “Tunnel Vision” peak at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in March.

Octave, meanwhile, on Thursday tweeted the address to the Joseph V. Conte Facility, a medium-custody site that houses inmates awaiting trial in Broward County.
