Boston Police say one person was arrested and charged for assault and battery, disorderly conduct, trespassing and resisting arrest.

Officials with the House of Blues say that new concert dates will be announced as soon as possible.

Kodak Black's team initially said that they had no idea where the singer was.

However, authorities with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and New York State Police tells WBZ NewsRadio that the Black was detained and later arrested at the Lewiston-Queenston Port of Entry in Lewiston, NY Wednesday. Black's legal name is Bill Kapri.

That border crossing is located near Niagara Falls.

According to Federal and New York State authorities Kapri, who was driving a Cadillac Escalade with temporary California plates, and two others were detained after he admitted to officials he was in possession of marijuana.

In addition the driver of the Porsche, Jeantony Saintmelus, 22 of Lauderhill, Fla, also traveling with Kapri, declared to Custom officials he had two loaded handguns in the car. He was also detained.

During a secondary inspection, another gun and marijuana was found in both vehicles.

"It was revealed that the weapons were possessed unlawfully in New York State and subsequently the marijuana, firearms and subjects were turned over to the New York State Police for further processing," a CBP spokesperson said.

Police arrested and charged Stetson J. President, 24, of Pompano Beach FL and Madarrow D. Smith 20, of Lauderhill, FL both for Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rddegree (C Felony). Bill K. Kapri, 21 of Miramar, FL and Jeantony Saintmelus, 22 of Lauderhill, FL both for Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rddegree and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, a Federal offence.

"The suspects were arraigned in the town of Lewiston Court and remanded to Niagara County Jail on $20,000/$40,000 cash/bond and to return to Lewiston Court in May 2019," officials say.
