Ja Rule and Lil Wayne Busted on Felony Gun Charges


Ja Rule and Lil Wayne Busted on Felony Gun Charges
US rappers Ja Rule and Lil Wayne have been arrested on charges of carrying illegal firearms in New York.


What should be a big music celebration turned into nightmare for Ja Rule and Lil Wayne. The fellow hip hop stars were arrested Sunday night July 22nd at almost the same time and place, both for possession of .40-caliber pistols.

The best-selling rappers were arrested Sunday night shortly after Lil Wayne's concert at the Beacon Theatre, where Ja Rule made a surprise guest appearance singing together their hit "Uh Oh". According to the explanation given by a spokesperson for the New York Police Department it is said that Ja Rule was stopped for speeding at 10:30 p.m. A further search conducted by the authority found out his 2004 Maybach luxury car had no insurance and a suspended registration.

Besides, police also "detected a strong odor of marijuana," and to make matter worse they later discovered a loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun from the rear driver's-side door. Shortly thereafter at 11:30 p.m. Lil Wayne was arrested while dressing in a tour bus near the Beacon Theater. In further search, police officers smelled marijuana and found a bag that contained a loaded .40-caliber handgun.

Hence, both Ja Rule and Lil Wayne were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and marijuana. The judge set bond at $150,000 for Ja Rule, and $70,000 for Lil Wayne. They are facing up to four years in prison if convicted.
