Update: Lil’ Wayne’s Lawyer Calls Arrest A Misunderstanding

Posted By on October 8, 2007

More information is now coming out surrounding Lil' Wayne's arrest in Idaho
on Saturday. The latest is his lawyer is now saying that his outstanding
warrant was the result of a misunderstanding.

Wayne was arrested in Boise, Idaho
over the weekend after a performance. As previously reported, Boise police arrested weezy on an outstanding
warrant for a drug charge, and was later released after posting bail. He is due
back in court for his arraignment on Tuesday, October 9.

Since his release, Wayne's attorney, William Head , has spoken up about the arrest, stating that the situation was the result of a misunderstanding.

"When someone's this successful, there are chances things will fall through the cracks," Head told Atlanta's Fox Channel 5. "They were under the impression that those charges had either been resolved or dismissed."

Wayne was arrested in Atlanta on drug charges more than a year ago. He was released on bond, but was declared a fugitive after he failed to show up for two court hearings in August.

Head said that Wayne never received any notices that he was required to appear in court.

In related news, Lil' Wayne missed an appearance following his release on Saturday at the University of Oregon where he was scheduled to headline the "Gods of Hip Hop and Comedy Tour."

According to the University's student newspaper, the Oregon Daily Emerald, the bulk of the audience was there to see Weezy, which they made clear by booing many of the acts who attempted to carry on their performances as scheduled.

The bill also included comedian Charlie Murphy, Sean Kingston and Fat Joe, who were all present – only to be greeted by an unappreciative crowd.

Saturday's incident in Idaho follows a recent post-show arrest in New York this July, when Wayne was picked up on drug and weapons possessions charges following a "Lil Wayne & Friends" concert.

The arrest cast a shadow over the eventful evening. During his concert Lil' Wayne played the guitar and freestyled for the audience, while also bringing out Juelz Santana, Ja Rule and Kanye West to collaborate onstage.

Since the arrest, Wayne has vowed never to perform in New York again, but concert promoters are now offering a special treat for those who missed the July concert. Footage for the show became available on Sunday (October 7) online at www.weezylive.com. For a $5 fee Wayne fans can view footage of the show on their computers.
