According to Wiz’s lawyer, they never received any notice for him to appear in court.
“Rapper Wiz Khalifa is wanted in El Paso – and not for his music. But his new attorney says it’s all a big mistake. Yesterday, Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, failed to appear in El Paso County court for an arraignment stemming from a May 25th arrest at the El Paso International Airport for possession of marijuana. Thomaz’ El Paso attorney, Thomas Carter IV, says his client never received a notice to appear, so he’s filed a motion to recall the arrest warrant for Thomaz.” (KETK NBC)
“Khalifa — who was arrested in May for trying to sneak weed onto a plane at the El Paso Airport — failed to appear in court Wednesday, so the judge issued an arrest warrant.” (TMZ)
