Lil' Wayne's Lawyer -- No Charges for Drug Bust

12/19/2009 11:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil WayneLooks like Lil' Wayne will walk away from yesterday's drug bust in Texas unscathed, at least according to his lawyer.

Lil' Wayne, along with 11 other people, was detained yesterday in Falfurrias, Tex. by the United States Border Patrol after marijuana was discovered on board his tour bus.

The Border Patrol says Wayne and the others were questioned and charges are pending. His lawyer tells TMZ that while some people did receive citations, Lil' Wayne was not one of them.

Lil' pled guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon stemming from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus. He is set to spend a year in jail and will appear for sentencing in February 2010.

UPDATE -- The Laredo Entertainment Center, where Lil' Wayne was supposed to perform last night but didn't, tells TMZ he will perform there tonight to make up for the canceled show.

I don't think Wayne should be punished for anything anymore. That hideous face of his is punishment enough for a lifetime of offenses. Man he is one ugly mofo.

Don't you just love the justice system... if that was you and got stopped... your butt would be facing a judge today! This my folks is what is wrong with America today, not only in our justice system but in Washington too.

I am truly getting tired of this guy. He's a terrible rapper and an even worse role model.

I'm not sure if it's a TX state law, but in Travis County u can have 4 ounces of marijuana or less and just get a citation on the spot ... no mandatory arrest. So NO, if it were u or me we wouldn't be facing a judge right now. (Assuming it wasn't more than 4 ounces)

U know how much cocaine and marijuana is comin through those border towns? They don't have time to worry bout somebody's lil personal stash.

All of this negative energy from these so-called bloggers about the appearance of Lil Wayne fails to mention one thing: He bangs better b*tches than all you snatches. Thus, Don't hate the player, hate the game, snitches. And what?

Wow I'm glad there is security at the check point last time my dad and I passed there they didn't even wait for my dad to show his card and just let us pass through. I wanted them to place charges on him not because I have anything against Lil' Wayne but because they shouldn't give him special treatment. I mean here if there is illegal drugs in your car and you don't know it you get sent to jail and facing a judge right away especially with that whole war on drugs thing happening in Mexico the border patrol is now on full alert to make sure it dosen't spread to the US
