Rapper Kamaiyah’s Conn. court date in airport spat may be delayed

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A lawyer for rapper Kamaiyah expects her first court date in a Connecticut airport disturbance case will be postponed as he and a prosecutor work to resolve misdemeanor charges.

The 26-year-old hip-hop artist from California was arrested at Bradley Airport near Hartford last month after police say she refused to remove a head cover after setting off an alarm and went on a profanity-laced tirade against security officers. Police filed breach of peace and interfering with police charges.

Her lawyer says Monday’s scheduled arraignment in Enfield likely will be postponed until at least late July and she won’t be in court.


Kamaiyah Johnson hit the scene with her 2016 debut mixtape “A Good Night in the Ghetto” and appeared in a Sprite commercial this year with basketball star LeBron James.
