Rapper Lil Wayne Busted for Felony Drug Possession


Lil Wayne was arrested on Tuesday night, January 22 for felony drug possession but was released the following day after posting a $10,185 bond.

Lil Wayne experienced another run-in with the law when he was arrested on Tuesday night, January 22 for felony drug possession after Border Patrol officers allegedly found marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy in his tour bus after the vehicle was pulled over for a routine check.

Wayne's bus, which carried Wayne and 11 other people in it, had been traveling east from California when it was stopped at a checkpoint in southwestern Arizona at about 11:30 P.M. Drug dog alerted officers to the presence of possible substances and appeared to be true there were nearly four ounces of pot, nearly an ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy, miscellaneous drug paraphernalia, $22,000 in cash and three guns found inside the bus.

Two of the firearms were said to be legally registered to two of Wayne's friends, whereas a .40-caliber pistol registered to Wayne in Florida, where he has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. By now authorities are still investigating whether the hip-hop star violated Arizona weapons laws.

As a result of the incident, Wayne and two other passengers of the bus, identified as Curtis Stewart and Harold Johnson, were booked into Yuma County Jail at 6 A.M. Wednesday, January 23 on suspicion of possession of dangerous drugs, narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The rapper, however, was released a little before 2 P.M. Wednesday on a $10,185 bond.

Has been scheduled to attend a hearing set for Friday, January 25, Wayne as claimed by his Yuma-based attorney, James Tilson, "is looking forward to his day in court."
