AceShowbiz - Lil Wayne had an unwanted encounter with authorities on Monday, December 23. It's been reported that the private jet the rapper boarded was searched by federal agents in Miami on suspicion of drugs transport.
Law enforcement sources alleged that Wayne's private jet was stopped after it landed at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport as authorities, which included members of Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and other agencies, received a tip that drugs were transported. It's said that Wayne, along with other passengers, was required to remain within the airport until federal authorities finished conducting the search.
It's still unknown whether federal agents discovered illegal materials on the plane or if they would take the lead on possibly questioning or charging any of the passengers. If Wayne is charged, he will most likely have to spend Christmas behind the bars since the courts are closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
This isn't the first time for Wayne to get in trouble with the law over drugs. Earlier this month, the 37-year-old star was almost arrested in Saudi Arabia for trying to smoke weed at a music festival in the country when that's completely illegal. Wayne was pretty upset about this, tweeting, "Never going to Riyadh again!!!"
However, instead of receiving sympathy, Wayne came under fire for not following the country's rules. One commented, "With all due respect, when you receive an invitation from a foreign country, before accepting that invitation, would you please read about the country and its regulations first? Not allowing weed in Saudi doesn't make us bad. FYI, even in US, some states still prohibiting weed."
Some people said he should be grateful he wasn't arrested despite consuming drugs in the country, as one other mocked him, "Im sure they have informed you, drugs are not allowed here. But you always though we are in desert, who will know."
