Lil Wayne is a brief prisoner. The hip hop star was arrested early Saturday morning October 6th in Boise, Idaho on a felony fugitive charge issued in Georgia for allegedly possessing a controlled substance.
The 25-year-old rapper was arrested soon following his concert at Boise's Qwest Arena. He was booked into the Ada County jail at around 7:30 AM before being released later that day on $10,000 bail.
According to sohh.com, Boise police Lt. Doug Doney told reporters the department received information that Wayne was wanted. Boise police gang detectives present at the concert confirmed the outstanding warrant, and after Wayne's performance undercover detectives arrested him. He was very cooperative and was arrested without incident.
Wayne is scheduled to be formally charged Tuesday October 9th and will be asked then whether he plans to waive his extradition to Georgia.
Wayne was arrested last August in Atlanta, GA, on drug possession charges. It has not been confirmed whether this arrest was in connection with those charges.
