Kodak Black Involved in Prison Fight That Left a Guard Hospitalized


South Florida rapper Kodak Black was involved in a prison fight in Miami on Tuesday night that left one guard hospitalized.

The fight, which started between two inmates, occurred at Miami's Federal Detention Center.

The rapper, whose real name is Bill Kapri, got into the fight with another inmate and kicked the guard in the groin while he was attempting to break up the altercation.

The injured guard was taken to the hospital where he underwent surgery. His current condition is unknown.

Kapri pleaded guilty to federal weapons charges and was in the detention center as he awaits sentencing scheduled for Nov. 13. The rapper could face up to eight years in prison.

Prosecutors originally charged Black with crimes including falsifying information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions. 

Authorities said one of the guns was found at the scene of a March shooting in Pompano Beach.
