Kodak Black IG Live Video Alerted Cops In Drug, Weapons Bust

1/19/2018 9:18 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Kodak Black got busted after cops saw his infant child surrounded by drugs and a handgun during an Instagram Live broadcast.

As we reported, the rapper got arrested Thursday in Florida and was booked for 7 charges ... including drug possession, child neglect and grand theft of a firearm. According to police docs, obtained by TMZ, officers responded to Kodak's home after someone observed the IG vid of multiple men in a bathroom rolling joints and playing with a handgun.

Police say the final straw came when Kodak's kid was brought into the bathroom, and was just inches away from a lit joint, and the weapon. Police say Kodak did nothing to get the child away from the danger.

The IG Live broadcast was still rolling when police came into the house.

According to docs, police found weed out in plain view, and got a search warrant. They ended up finding 94.9 grams of marijuana in his bedroom closet.

They say his safe contained cash and a loaded Glock with 9 rounds, and there was a Beretta handgun in his office. The Beretta was reported stolen in December, hence the grand theft charge.

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and WWE superstar Roman Reigns don't have to worry about a DEA probe into their alleged ties to a steroid dealer ... because the law is on their side.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the 3 celebs -- who were named in a phone interview of imprisoned steroids dealer, Richard Rodriguez -- won't be investigated by the DEA because the agency doesn't target alleged buyers of illegal drugs.

Instead, the DEA focuses its efforts on going after kingpins like Rodriguez -- along with other traffickers, manufacturers and distributors.

As we reported ... Wahlberg, Duhamel and Reigns were all accused by Rodriguez of using aliases to purchase 'roids. Reigns has denied the allegations, and says he has no idea who the dude is. Wahlberg has also said the accusations are false.

Rodriguez is currently facing charges for conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and money laundering.
