Lil Wayne -- Arresting Cops were Dirty Dogs

6/23/2009 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lil Wayne's lawyer went to court today ... ready to pull the trigger on the "bad dog" defense!

Lil Wayne: Click to launch

Weezy was busted in January 2008 at a border checkpoint in Arizona, where authorities found cocaine, ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus. Wayne's lawyer told the judge he thinks the drug-sniffing dogs used in the bust may not have been reliable because they weren't adequately trained.

Why, you ask, does that matter? Well Mr. Wayne's lawyer seems to think if the dogs weren't reliable, the resulting search was illegal and the drugs shouldn't be used as evidence. Tough argument -- the dogs found coke.

The judge has yet to rule on whether Wayne's lawyer can probe into how the dogs were trained.

Isn't it about time to start prosecuting these Gangsta wannabe A Holes and lock them up? Too much money for no talent leads to arrests like this one

SOrry that TMZ is not educated about this defense, laughable since Harvey is a lawyer. The defense goes like this, most drug dogs have a success rate of 58-65, the rest are false positives. Since the probable cause to do the search in the first place was most likely becasue they walked the dog around the tour bus and he alerted, they therefore said they had the right to search the bus. Well wrong, according to past ruling and or precedence set in state courts all the way to the supreme court. A dog who success rate is at 60 percent , means 40 percent of he time, the cops are searching wrongly based on the dogs search result history. This is a violation of your privacy rights. If every 2 times the dog is wrong, cops should not be allowed to violate someone rights based on this awful average, 60 percent equals failure anyway you slice it. Lil Wayne will most likely win his case with this defense. The constitution gives us a right to privacy, cops haved used the advancement of the drug sniffing k9 to get around our natural righ to privacy....Are you really surprised!!! Harvey is you need some law lessons, drop me an email.
