Lil Wayne was arrested
Tuesday (Jan 22) night at a Border Patrol Checkpoint in southwest Arizona; on three
felony drug charges after federal agents found near four ounces of marijuana, an
ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstasy as well as a .44 caliber pistol
(registered to Wayne).
Lil Wayne has a
concealed weapons permit in Florida, but authorities are looking into any
weapons laws were violated in Arizona.
Wayne has since
been released. After posting $10,185 bond, the rapper signed autographs for
fans outside of the bail bondsman’s office.
“We will find out by
January 25 whether or not the (Yuma) county attorney will file charges or not,”
James Tilson, a local attorney retained by Wayne,
told USAtoday; as the rapper was not
formally charged and will have to appear in court at the end of the month.
“He is looking forward to his day in court. That’s all I can
say right now.”
