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.

If the poverty programs of the 1960's were allowed to succeed, We wouldn't have all of this

crime now. But, I guess you red knecks won't evil to prevail and not peace. You all won't

be happy until the Earth perish in a nuclear holocaust. Lil Wayne needs the love of our

American society for guidance to a rightous path.

#15 your comment is as ignorant as you are! You know what is also hard to believe?
that the standard profile for serial killers is a white male! There are other names also, such as pedophile (child molester), rapist, bank robber, in bred, the list goes on and on.
So the next time you want to call a black mother a whore or her child a bastard... think about your mama! Now crawl back under the rock you came from and tell you mother to move over and share the covers!!!! How do you like that? Jerk!

you mean pretty blonde girl you spelled are wrong its OUR! Oh and another thing why do some white people thrive off of ignorance, I mean sure he's a loser thug with played out rhymes if you can call them rhymes but I'm going to have to agree with L.H and watch dateline ninety nine percent of the men who come to their little set up are white and I'm not saying blacks dont do it because some do but if you can hopefully see where I'm going with this is that it's not always black. the sooner you realize this the better for everyone.

These storties are old.

Lil Wayne is out of that jail cell in Boise, Idaho I was able to get him released from jail around 7:30 PM Eastern time today (October 6th) by getting the presiding judge, Fulton Superior Court Judge Craig L. Schwall, to sign an order requiring additional bond of $10,000 and that he appear in Fulton County next week to answer to charges relating to his August 2006 arrest for possession of drugs.

You have got to be kidding, right? YOU are the MISANTHROPE... you need to pick up a dictionary before you try using big words that you don't understand!

"Misanthrope" : a person who hates or distrusts humankind

..hmm seems to me, you are the one full of hate! You're all nothing but a bunch of self righteous, self-important, imbeciles with nothing intelligible to say.
