Lil Wayne

Arrested -- Again!

1/23/2008 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that rapper Lil Wayne has been popped by cops for drugs ... again!

0123_wayne_mugshot_2-1
Law enforcement officials tell us Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., was arrested near Yuma, Arizona last night on three felony counts: possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. Cops tell TMZ that the Drug Enforcement Agency was involved in the arrest -- which means it's a big deal! We're told Lil Wayne's tour bus went through a US Border Patrol checkpoint when the narcotics were allegedly found, that's when the DEA was called in.

Wayne is currently in the custody of the Yuma County Sheriff's Department, where he'll be held pending his arraignment at 9:00 AM PT.

Wayne was arrested in Idaho last year for felony possession of drugs.

I also get a little put-off by the racist wannabe comedians who are quick to post anti-black rubbish whenever someone of color is in the news. However, to say you're "glad" Heath Ledger is dead is as ignorant and asinine as anything they post. The worst part is, you're not hurting them because anyone ignorant enough to post anonymous racist drivel on the Internet probably doesn't care about ANYBODY, least of all Heath Ledger. The man left behind a little girl and it's a tragedy regardless of his color. Glad all blacks don't feel as cold and unsympathetic due to the acts of others.

I love Tupac    

I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE THINK THAT CELEBS AREN'T HUMAN. WHEN YOU HEAR OF A CELEB GETTING ARRESTED IT IS SUCH A BIG DEAL BUT SOME UNKNOWN PERSON GETTING ARRESTED FOR THE SAME THING IS NOT. JUST BECAUSE THESE PEOPLE HAVE MONEY DOES NOT MAKE THEM ANY LESS OR MORE HUMAN THAN ANYONE ELSE. FAME AND FORTUNE DOES NOT MEAN A PERSON WON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES AS THE AVERAGE JOE. STOP PUTTING THESE PEOPLE ON A PEDALSTAL AND SEE THEM FOR WAHT THEY ARE HUMAN!! IN MY LINE OF WORK I SEE ALL KINDS OF ADDICTS AND ADDICTION IS NO JOKE NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE.

moriah, why do you want this man to die? because he has a drug problem, what about the people in your family with drug problems or any kind of problems for that matter, do you hate them and wish death upon them? i hope not. you are clearly a racist and a pshycopath. you need help, go to talk to someone! this is a sad epidemic that has been tearing our country down since forever! SAY NO TO DRUGS!

Wow, we has absolutely no chin. He's sticking his tongue over his bottom teeth to pretend he has a jaw. Weird.

#13 and #31, Teardrop tattoos do not only mean that the person rocking them have killed someone. My ex-husband has a teardrop in memory of his grandmother who passed away. Please get the facts before you post ignorant statements on the internet. It does not make you look smart, it actually makes you appear to be living under a rock and possess the sense that God gave a cabbage.

Bunch of morons. A teardrop tattoo mean one thing...he has a teardrop tattoo. What, do you think the convict that put that on there asked to see the body before he'd put it on?

As for the rest of you that think he's innocent, get a clue. It was a tour bus, going through a check point operated by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). They have narcotics dogs. The dogs hit, which gives the agents PC to conduct a search. If it was a small amount, they would have written him a ticket and sent him on his way, or called the local authorities to deal with it. They called DEA, who have better things to do than deal with nickel-dime street dope. Plus, he's got priors so you've probably bought your last Lil Wayne CD. Damn.
