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.

You ppl are so ignorant. Lil' Wayne is a rap superstar. Rap is a predominantly black genre. COUNTLESS white rock stars have KILLED themselves doing harder drugs like heroin or crystal meth. If you weren't blinded by your ignorance, you would REALLY listen to his last album or The Carter III, which is supposed to be released soon. He is an artist's artist. Creative. Inspiring. Prolific even. Lil' Wayne is a self-made multi-millionaire. Last time I checked, rap was the most popular genre of music in the world.

HOP OFF!

I just want to add that Weezy Baby may be guilty on the drug charges but does that open it up for everybody to rank on his appearance and the rest of his lifestyle. I mean really, I have read some really ignorant comments on here and it really left me no choice but to comment and let yall know...let Wayne do Wayne. He isnt doing nothing to any of yall so let him be. Really, low blows about his chin and hair are not going to hurt him. He has been through much more than teasing, believe me, oh boy from the murda capital. All i can say is Wayne stay strong..keep reppin Uptown ,and makin that money ya heard me.

"Stop hatin on a N****, that is a weak emotion, tha lady of a N****" Lil Wayne

Oh yes, and as far as the race card goes......what some call pulling the race card is what others call reality. I call it reality. Tell me the white man is not priority number one in this country. Tell me jail time, jobs and loans are not influenced by the color of ones skin. Honestly, we arent pulling the race card, we are telling it like it is.

"OMG",I think they should leave these rappers alone,they have no private life their HUMAN just like U and I,The same officers that arrest them have couple grams of cocain and a few ounces of weed at their residence,if NOT I'm VERY SURE they have a RELATIVE if not a Child that does the same thing,but u DON'T See them getting arrested if they do its KEPT a SECRET and the CHARgES are later DROPPED! If their NOT harming others r selling,its for personal USE,let them B!FREEEE LIL WAYNE!

I feel that any one who is talking about his face tats of his neck sizes is not over looking the fact that he makes hot music and he's PAID. I hope that he use a little more sense when riding around with drugs if this is at all the truth. Good Luck in the out come of this case.

It is so sad when you want people to buy your music while you got something up your nose. you know this comment,"you got you 15 min of fame." it is only a matter of time that you will fizzled out. there are better rappers than you, making great music .go ahead and make more rapp songs, now people know where your money goes. look at that reflection in the mirror.
