Paul Wall

Cop Had a 'Vendetta' Against Me

in Weed Arrest

Rapper Paul Wall claims he was unfairly targeted by a police officer in El Paso this weekend ... and claims he's prepared to fight his marijuana possession case ... if push comes to shove.

TMZ spoke with Wall's rep ... who tells us cops entered the nightclub where Wall and fellow rapper Baby Bash had performed and told the rappers that their rented van smelled like marijuana. 

The rep says cops searched the vehicle and all of the passengers and found "a filter of a joint, which tested positive for marijuana resin."

We're told Paul was charged with possession of marijuana under 2oz. in a drug-free zone -- because they happened to be near a school.

The rep says Paul insists the weed wasn't his ... but adds, "This is truly the vendetta of a singular member of the El Paso County Constable Department and these facts will bear out over time."

"In the meantime," the rep adds ... "if Baby Bash and Paul Wall have to fight this like Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, they are certainly not in bad company."

Normally I think laws against pot are stupid, and it should be legalized. But in this case, anything that will put a loser like this behind bars is fine with me.

They don't have a vendetta against you, they have a vendetta against weed.

A filter? Who smokes weed through a filter? That doesn't make any sense. Those cops must have been itching for a bust if they'll go after them over some resin.
