Bow Wow

No Longer a Wanted Man

in Georgia

can finally go back home to Georgia -- without being immediately arrested -- and all it took was a $90,000 check.

TMZ broke the story ... a Tennessee tour bus company won a judgment against the rapper over a $92,749 bill from 2009. BW never paid, so the company went back after him in Georgia court ... asking a judge to make Bow Wow fork over the dough.

Bow Wow failed to cooperate, so the Georgia judge held him in contempt -- ordering the rapper be arrested on sight anywhere in the state.

But it's all water under the bridge now -- a notice was recently filed in Georgia court, showing BW has paid the bill in full.

It's unclear if the arrest order has explicitly been lifted -- but at this point, it's just a formality.  Ain't Georgia peachy?

HEY TMZ! Being a two bit rapper DOES NOT make someone a celebrity! File this one under the "Who gives a sh*t?" file.

Thanks for giving him some kind of publicity TMZ because his music sure hasn't been doing anything for him since Big Mama's House.

TMZ baby journalists should be checking legalities with Herpes Levin, because you are reporting incorrect information. Paying the debt is not just a formality, because payment of the debt was not the reason for the arrest warrant; it was his contempt for the Court. The judge does not have to lift the contempt warrant just because the debt has been paid.
