BOSTON - Kodak Black was arrested on drug and weapons charges as the rapper tried to cross from Canada into the United States near Niagara Falls, law enforcement officials said Thursday.
A reported sexual assault and a cancelled concert led to one arrest in Fenway Wednesday night, according to Boston Police.
Officers showed up at the House of Blues Wednesday night for a reported sexual assault and found a restless crowd of nearly 1,000 waiting on a show by Kodak Black. The rapper would ultimately not show up for his concert because he had reportedly been arrested crossing the U.S.-Canada border earlier in the day with an unregistered gun and cannabis.
Police say when they got to the venue, they located the victim of the assault and escorted them to an ambulance for treatment.
When police were notified of the concert cancelation, additional officers were called to help disperse the crowd.
Police described the scene as a "large group displaying generally unruly behavior as a result of a cancelled show," but said the crowd mostly dispersed without incident in about 30 minutes.
However, police did say one man was arrested after assaulting House of Blues security staff.
Samuel Simmons, 20, was trying to get back into the venue when he pushed and punched members of the security staff, police said Thursday.
Simmons has been charged with assault and battery, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and trespassing.
