Lil' Wayne Arrested, DEA Busts Rapper W/ Coke & Ecstasy
written by Lauren Carter

Wednesday - January 23, 2008

Lil' Wayne will be appearing on video today (Jan. 23), but it won't be to shoot the visuals to his latest rap track.The New Orleans rapper will be broadcast into a courtroom in Yuma County, Ariz. via the Yuma County Detention Center following his arrest on drug charges last night (Jan. 22).

Carol Hudson, chief clerk at the Yuma County Justice Court, told SOHH that the hip-hop star - real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. - was scheduled to appear in court via video feed at 10 a.m. MST. The video court appearance is standard procedure for all detainees.

At the video hearing, the judge will either set a bond or release Weezy.

According to TMZ, the rapper was hauled into jail on three felony counts: possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) was reportedly involved in the arrest.

The Yuma Sun reports that Wayne was arrested following a vehicle search by the Border Patrol on Interstate 8 near Dateland, which uncovered illegal drugs belonging to the rapper, including 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and an unspecified amount of ecstacy.

Two other members of Wayne's entourage were arrested following the search, which occurred around 11:30 p.m. last night (Jan. 22).

A security control officer at the Yuma County Detention Center who asked to remain anonymous told SOHH the rapper was brought to the detention center around 6:40 a.m. this morning (Jan. 23), but could not give out other details pertaining to the arrest.

This latest mishap is hardly the first run-in with the law for Weezy. In the summer of 2006, he was arrested for drug possession in Atlanta, and the following summer he was arrested on gun charges in New York. This past October, he was again arrested on drug charges following a concert date in Boise, Idaho.

Bond has been set for recently arrested rapper Lil' Wayne in the amount of $10,185 following a court appearance this morning (Jan. 23).

As SOHH previously reported, Wayne was arrested in Yuma County, Ariz. last night (Jan. 22) after a vehicle search uncovered 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and an unspecified amount of ecstasy.

Weezy was taken to jail on three felony counts: possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia, and as of 2:30 p.m. EST today (Jan. 23) was still in custody.

He appeared in court at 10 a.m. MST via video feed from the Yuma County Detention Center.

A court clerk at the Yuma County Justice Court who asked to remain anonymous told SOHH that the rapper is scheduled to appear back in court on Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. MST for a reading of a complaint, due to the fact that he has been booked on pending felony charges.

Update: According to TMZ, police also found a firearm on Weezy's person during his arrest. Along with a .40 caliber pistol, which Wayne reportedly has a permit to carry in the state of Florida, they also found $22,000 in cash. Authorities are currently investigating if his permit to carry a concealed weapon carries over to Arizona.
