Lil Wayne

Arrested in Idaho

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

: 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.

Wow... I have never seen such Hate on a blog page..... Over someone no one knows personaly. as an Idahoan I thought it was hillarious that someone knowingly had a warrant and went on tour without resolving the matter first, that is just asking for trouble and loss of money with all the refunded tickets for the next show.... Boise Cops dont give a rats ass who you are or what you do...its a good thing he didnt run or pull a gun cuz round here its Open season for the BPD....just look at the rate they are running down freeked out teenagers with unloaded none working guns.

You have got to be kidding me...

I just looked up reparation-WOW since it works that way, I am going to sue the designer of the poodle skirt for naming a skirt after a dog. And if he/she has passed away, next of kin will have to do. I didn't grow up in that generation but someone in my family did, so that will be my argument. Wish me luck

First of all, has Lil Wayne ever attacked ya'll. Ya'll would think the man went on a mass killing spree the way ya'll talking. Half the people on this web-site smoke weed or drink way too much. So yee without dank (weed for the slow persons) or drank cast the 1st stone.

Good question!!

Stupidity needs to get lost. 9/11 was our wake-up call. .

Seems like when illegals and our borders became our task at hand-someone threw slavery in the mix too.

America, America, Amarica!!! Black, White, Black, White!!! Divided!!!! Am may went to jail for crimes he commit or crimes the justice system will have to prove he commit, the same justice system who tried O.J, Sen Craig, Foley, Martha Stewart, Isiah Thomas any many others in the past and many to come, whats up with all the racist remarks??? For what i can see 'some' rappers pride themselve as being thugs and should expect to receive what thugs usually get... What about Senators to you trust and voted for, white/black/green whatever color, breaking the rules too... Have some of you take the time to read the transcript on the conversation Mark Foley had wth the underage kid?? have some of you who claims the street is one thug safer watch Dateline To catch a preditor lately?? what about this "dirtbag" that's on national television admitting to be a child preditor?? what if he was not white??? Google "a false sense of security" educate yourself its not black and white America its RIGHT & WRONG!!! JUDGING SOMEONE BECAUSE OF THE WAY THEY LOOK IS DANGEROUS AND STUPID!! MOST OF THE TIMES THE ONE'S YOU TRUST BLACK/WHITE/GREEN, IS THE ONES WHO SHOULD NOT BE TRUSTED!!! AND YES I AM WHITE!!!

If race is that much of an issue for you people, which clearly it is; because you are ranting and raving like a bunch of lunatics, then clearly it has something to do with your own insecurities... If you're happy with who you are, then someone else's remarks shouldn't offend you!

It really amazes me when people read a 3 paragraph article on someone and forms so many opinions. I honestly wish that all who posted a negative comment would do there homework before posting a comment.It is funny to read the comments about Lil wayne and then read the comments of an article about Lindsey Lohan or Brittany Spears. At the end of the day they are all regular people just like you and I who make wrong choices in life sometimes. Believe me when I say I do not promote the wrong doings of either one of the individuals mentioned above but please millions of people get arrested on a daily basis and they dont get this much attention. Get a grip, there is so much more to worry about.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

I personally do not believe that skin pigment has much to do with intelligence! As far as Lil Wayne goes, if you are a well known star and plan to be in the public eye, well, you take your chances! He had an outstanding warrant and got popped for it! As far as the race card goes, color doesn't change this much either. There is plenty of genocide going on in Africa and other parts of the world perpetrated by people trapped in some very unfortunate situations- of all colors and creeds! Take a look at Rwanda if you don't believe me! In Europe is was that Hitler nutjob! White, black, tan, brown, whatever! I don't care if you're Robert Blake, OJ Simpson ( who I do believe was at the very least was partially set up for this last incident), Phil Spector, or G.W. Bush, If you do the crime, be prepared to pay the consequences! Sounds like pain old stupidity was the major contributing factor here!
