Kodak, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, is officially being detained and booked at the Federal Detention Center in Miami.
The news is, unfortunately, the latest hiccup to come of the three-day Rolling Loud festival in Miami. Friday night (May 10th) reports of an active shooter on festival grounds were falsely spread after festivalgoers were injured in a stampede that ensued when a fight broke out.
The show is set to conclude with a headlining set from Kid Cudi on Sunday night (May 12th).
