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.

THANK YOU #"s 48 & 57. Your comments define exactly what I was trying 2 say. White people always have something to say about blacks, but it's their kids or maybe even them personally that support our black entertainers they hate so much. I think its more of jealousy than racism. ENVY IS A ILLNESS...GET WELL SOON!!!!

People please - we must grow beyond the racism of blacks toward themselves & others. 92% of black homocides by blacks. Lil promotes that in his "lyrics". And now Latino's rapid growth is seen as a major threat by too many blacks - MLK was right - peace now is the answer!

First of all robert e lee Afro American's are not the only one's that have babies out of wed-lock. I work for the system and that's all you mostly see is white people with children born out of wed-lock . #3 needs a reality check why will the streets be safer because he's in jail?? Have you watch the predator catcher's those's are the one's that needs to be put away,The priest that are molesting the little kids needs to be in jail. I am a fan of Lil Weezy and I am praying for him. At least I can say one thing about him, He isn't a DEAD BEAT DAD. I give this man major credit for stepping up and taking care of his daughter at such a young age. Can't find to many like him. The Good Outweigh's The Bad. Lil Weezy keep your head up & God Bless You. Only God Can Judge!!

I raised Wayne to respect all people. Thus, Wayne appeals to a wide audience. Hello

dude he is in Idaho to get paid. Guess the demographic of his audience. It is 95.5% of?

So, no cowboy race you baiting SOB will keep him down. He was an angel at the

orphanage and, nothing has change since. Thank you so very much.

P.S. why don't you serve your typical hill food of racoon and turnips

Hilarious 99-100 - racist & low-IQ funny - 75% of black kids out of wedlock & 92% black on black dead & 40% dropout rate - caucasian & asian & hispanics are the reason right? I do my part by sneaking some black kitty at times - peace & love!

104 - outstanding racism @ its best! Too many black kids love to spend it all on "bling & sing" race-based, whereas the white teens you mention take in all genre of performers because they have earned it & can afford to spend it affluently ... so a bit of Lil is easy to afford - an amusing "artist" because smart kids love diversity. Is that too caucasian or asian for you?

All of you have little brains. In New Orleans, the tears are for how many people he has killed. Same as if he had dots on his hands. Secondly, he was not a fugitive from Idaho if you actually READ the story, he was a fugitive in Georgia and Idaho cops picked him up for theGA. As for the streets being safer...please, he carries a gun and smokes blunts...big deal, half of Lousiana does that and we are no worse off than any other place...get a life!

Surprise, surprise, surprise. Another thug rapper goes to jail. Go figure. Trying to legitimize there crap by trying to convince people that they have talent. RAP rhymes with CRAP for a reason. No talent required. Try getting a rapper to actually sing, and then see how talented they really aren't.
