Lil Wayne’s Arrest a Misunderstanding, According to Attorney
As previously reported on XXLMag.com, Lil Wayne was arrested in Boise, Idaho on October 5 following a performance at the Qwest Arena. Weezy was picked up on an outstanding felony warrant issued from the state of Georgia relating to a drug possession charge from more than a year ago. The warrant was issued after Wayne missed two scheduled court dates. According to Wayne’s attorney, William Head, however, the situation was merely a misunderstanding. “When someone’s this successful, there are chances things will fall through the cracks,” Head tells Atlanta’s Fox Channel 5. “They were under the impression that those charges had either been resolved or dismissed.” Head went on to say that Wayne never received any notices that he was supposed to appear in court. Weezy was eventually released from jail on October 6 after posting $20,000 bond. He is due back in court for his arraignment on Tuesday, October 9.
