Kodak Black's lawyer has blasted the police force for allegedly leaking a photo of the rapper in custody, following his arrest before he was set to perform at Rolling Loud Miami...
Kodak Black's criminal defence attorney, Bradford Cohen has spoken out since the rappers arrest when he was on his way to perform at Rolling Loud Miami.
Cohen believes the police force is responsible for the release of Kodak's jail photos going viral. The Floridian rapper can be seen in custody with a huge smile in a blue Gucci suit.
On Sunday (May 12th) Kodak's lawyer, Cohen, spoke to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and revealed why he believes the police are responsible for the photo being leaked.
He told the news outlet: "I think the actions of the [police] in taking a photo of him in the police station in handcuffs and selling it or giving it to WSVN is a disgusting display of unprofessionalism".
