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.

lol John (the second poster) said that Lil' Weezy should be called lil IQ boy...and then proceeded to call him a "fugative"...only in America's heartland can a moron call out some person's intelligence, and then only two words later spell a three-syllable word incorrectly - the pathetic-ness of which is only magnified by the fact that the word fugitive is written in the middle of the article...

...Lil' Weezy is the best rapper alive....

So obvious how many black racists there are in the USA - hate it seems mainly for themselves & the black community - then non-black 2nd. Lil in your town behind bars is lovely news for all - peace & love should be the tune of choice with a side order of mom & dad in the house & family fun.

Maybe Lil got a bad subprime home loan & was acting up about being "discriminated" against?!

I'm not sure what race has to do with anything, The guy had a warrant out and was picked up!
You think the jail just has him in it?
also from what I have read the racial comments are about 50/50 towards each other, just as it is in real time.

Agree race should not be an issue - clearly he has broke the law & may have again - part of the romance that too many blacks & others love in their celebs.

Personally - I'm a fan of no one on earth - makes life easier to tune into spiritual endeavors. Lil boy will get his.

EVERYONE, STOP TURING EVERYTHING INTO A RACE ISSUE. AND ALL OF YOU PEOPLE WITH PINT-UP ANGER TOWARDS BLACKS BUT TOO FREAKIN' SCARED TO SAY IT TO A BLACK PERSON'S FACE... TALK TO A THERAPIST!!!
PINT UP RESENTMENT/ANGER AIN'T NO GOOD FOR YOU. IT JUST MAKES YOU AN UPTIGHT IGNORANT TALKING DONKEY. (HEE-HAW). AND SHOWS THAT YOU ARE A SCARDY-CAT (yes I deliberately talk to those like #7 as if they are little annoying children because they sound as such). GROW UP DONKEYS!
AND STOP BEING JEALOUS. I KNOW, I GET JEALOUS SEEING PEOPLE WHO MAKE MUSIC ,PLAY SPORTS or PLAYING MAKE BELIEVE(ACTORS) MAKING 400 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT A BRAIN SURGEON OR MOST OF US ON THIS BLOG DOES. BUT THAT'S LIFE. DEAL WITH IT. (this session is done).

RE: AMW 559 #37

This white woman and her white husband LOVE LOVE LOVE The Lakers!
I miss Shaq, Robert Horry and yahhooo - Derek Fischer is back! My husband goes beyond "worship" with regard to his Lakers - he wants no disturbances when watching the game at home. You can hear him cheering, and or booing about what is going on with the game, that he can be heard from 2 blks away!
We spend $$$ to see as many games as able.
I could go on about other venues, music, food, that we pay $$ having to do with black people, but I think I have made my point.
So you are 100% right - love the contributions that black americans have given to this white couple!

62. Why the f**K does it matter what color you are?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uh, because in the latest FBI crime statistics just released, Blacks make up 13% of the population but over 50% of the entire Country's murders.

Its not Racist, just a Statistic.

Black people feel safer around White People because the BOB crime rate is something like 5 times higher than the rate of White on White crime. And White on Black crime is so low it barely made the report.

When it comes to crime, Color does matter and we all know it. Doesnt mean you cant be around Black people, employ them, nor associate with them, just means you're more likely to be a victim of crime if it involves a Black person than a Hispanic, Asian or White person.

Nothing hard to understand about that..it is what it is for its own reasons, not because people are racist or haters.

Do please read the book by Black author, Juan Williams "Enough" if you have any questions as to why it continues.

The Rapper in question here, was arrested like anyone else would be if it was discovered a warrant exisited. How he chooses to make a living is his business. We cant purchase his music or not. However, when it comes to outstanding warrants, Police never overlook them when they are found, irregardless of Color.
