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.

Not anyone I'd bring home to mother. Or want to be associated with. Way to bring down your race, brother. Think of the little kids who watch you. Are you proud to be a criminal?

Was anyone taught if you don't have anything good to say, don't say it at all? Were you on the bus? Do you know what happened? Stop making stupid ignorant comments about him and his situation. His tear drops don't mean he killed someone, they mean some of his homies died. Get your facts right before you start typing and showing everyone your stupidity.

This is sad, this is what our black youth have to look up to. Until african americans start having positive role models to admire and strive to be it won't get any better for them. I say that lovingly. I as a white american I would love to see our african american children have better role models, they have to many rappers, singers and athletes as role models and not enough educated leaders. We need more black attorneys, doctors, teachers and buisness men/women.
If you keep living in the box you will never get out of the box. Get the hell out of the box, the box is empty and boring.
