Lil Wayne has officially checked in with the probation department in Yuma County, Arizona to begin his three year sentence stemming from a drug-filled tour bus incident from 2008.
Wayne (seen above) has been ordered to three years of unsupervised probation and 360 hours of community service -- which he will perform in Miami, where he resides.
As we previously reported, Wayne was arrested in 2008 after his tour bus was stopped at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near Yuma -- and authorities claim they found cocaine, ecstasy and a handgun on board.
Weezy pled guilty to one count of felony possession of a dangerous drug -- while the other drug charges and the gun charge were all thrown out.
If Weezy's a good boy -- Yuma officials will drop the felony to a misdemeanor, which could benefit the rapper in the event that he's arrested in the future. It could also help on a job application.
UPDATE: We're told Lil was there for about 30 minutes and was very professional. He has to report to the probation office in Miami by November 10.
