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.

"oh and who is Omar El Bashir? i just went to wikipedia and he isnt even listed"

(that's where I went to check him out myself...and ...low and behold, he IS listed in wikipedia. maybe you spelled it wrong, but he's there sweetie... ) and this comment:

"colin powell isnt even black in my eyes", (in YOUR eyes, huh) I mean, you might WISH he were white, but come on now... he IS black) sorry, but...I'm laughing my ass off over these comments.... and believe me, I'm not racist...I just don't like folks who are, and that's just how you sound. I don't know if you're white or black or purple, but you SOUND racist....

Rappers, thugs, etc aren't the only ones committing crimes. Get off your high horse. Why is it that when a rapper gets arrested it speaks for all of them, but when an actor or rock star gets arrested it doesn't speak for all of them????
