Lil Wayne

Arrested in Idaho

10/6/2007 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


1007_wayne_new-1UPDATE
: As of late Saturday, Lil Wayne is free on $10,000 bond.

TMZ has learned that rapper Lil Wayne was arrested early Saturday morning in Boise, Id.

Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was booked into the Ada County Jail by the Boise City Police around 7:30 AM MT this morning. The Sheriff's Department website indicated he was booked on felony charges of being a fugitive.

Boise cops tell TMZ Wayne was arrested immediately following his concert Friday night at Boise's Qwest Arena. We're told he was picked up on a felony warrant out of Fulton County, Ga., for a felony possession of drugs charge. Authorities from Georgia contacted Idaho police and gave them the heads up about the warrant.

Cops tell us he was very cooperative and was arrested without incident. He is now in protective custody pending an arraignment and extradition hearing, which will take place Monday afternoon.

Wayne was previously nabbed in July on a gun charge in New York, and in 2006 he was busted in Atlanta for drug possession.

Calls to Lil Wayne's publicist were not immediately returned. No other information is yet available.

The tattoed tears are because he killed someone or at least that's what all the thugs in prison get tattoed on their faces. He's a POS. And less than 30 people are talking about him. That says it all.

Love you Britney. Get your party on girlfriend.

i think if you got something bad to say about someone look in the mirror..cause thats the only person you really have to worry about..i'm tired of people always bashing black people..white people are just as bad..they just hide it like they are so perfect..what a joke..
