Lil Wayne Arraigned on Drug Charges in Atlanta

Lil Wayne appeared in an Atlanta courtroom on Wednesday (October 31) for his arraignment on three counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance. The charges stem from an August 2006 arrest at the Twelve Hotel in Atlanta during which police confiscated marijuana and the prescription drugs Xanax and hydrocodone. After failing to show up for a previous court date, Weezy was picked up in Idaho on October 5 on a warrant issued by authorities in Atlanta. The rapper’s attorney, William Head, says the whole thing is a misunderstanding. According to the lawyer, a case notice from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office was mistakenly mailed to Weezy’s old address in New Orleans, which was wiped out in Hurricane Katrina. On Wednesday, Head filed motions with the court disputing the legality of the hotel room search that led to the initial arrest, and also requested that the defense be allowed to inspect fingerprint evidence taken from the bottles of pills found in the room. “We asked to examine the evidence so we can prove it has no connection to him,” Head told E! News Online. “Let’s see what the fingerprints are.” Wayne is also facing a separate charge of being a fugitive in Idaho, a charge that will have to be handled in a Boise court.

    Wow. There’s a reaaaaal shocker.

  • G!

    Weezy don’t need that bullshit to be good. To me, he sounds better when he aint all pilled or weeded up. It’s sad that everytime a musician hits a prime in thier career that most of the time it’s because they drugged up with no sense of reality. I dunno, weezys still cold though.

    Who does Wayne think he is w/ all of these cases he’s catchin… Pac? These mothafuckas today cant keep there nose out of the courtroom. They appear in the courts n shit but they never serve time or it never defimates their image. All of the A Town artist have gottin locked up w/ no appeal (Tip, Gucci Mane, Don P, and Pimpin). Wayne is a mothafuckin Hippie. Those drugs have fucked up his whole entire infrastructure as an MC. His persona has matured but depreciated since his early Cash Money days. The last time he seemed that he had relevancy to me was when he dropped the Sqad Up series. Now that X got him feelin that he could be T.Pain. I hope they bag him on one of these cases because I wanna work on bein the “best rapper” while he’s servin time.

Stop being Rapper racist. Cause yall putting out all that garbage, Hip Hop aint dead its doing very well it has a much wider range than it used to.

    You would think that a “rich rap star” could afford to find a “Doctor” to write his scripts for him, then he wouldnt have this problem. Plus he’s prolly payin street prices, UGH!

  • nigga from memphis

    I don’t want to beat the guy up,besides he’s still a baby,kissin dude on the mouth and shit.But what kills me is how he has the audacity to say he’s better than Jay.All you young niggas who think that think about this.Have you ever heard Jigga depending on dope as far as his music goes.Jay can say more (And you will clearly understand what he is saying) in 5 minutes than wayne can go in 15.I can see wayne pausin,asking th d.j. to go back and start over and by the time it’s over with everybody sleep.I know that was lean in his cup on Bet and he need to be shamed to have his kids around doing that shit.To all the east coast folks that aren’t hatin on us down here I just want you to know that we have folks that suck down here just like everybody else.What happen to my boy JUvie?And now I gotta ride on dj aladin from the terror squad.I hate and resent the fact that everybody can open stores in our neighborhood,tell us how to be more black and we can’t tell no one else shit.Yall lookin reeeeeeeeeaaaallll stupid listening to a motherfucka livin in South Beach,riding yachts talkin about he so hood.Fool u from the middle east.Them Miami niggas (minus trick) are starting to bug me.

    • westbankbeezy

      Nigga you from Memphis, u dont even listen to Jay, Wayne reppin for the south, and you cant even appreciate that shit. talking bout young niggaz nigga im 27, Im tired of ppl saying where hip hop lives and all that bullshit, Im glad the boy killin em in the studio and he doing it they way, straight MC like, you feel me. MLKjr aint tought you nothin, we shall all join as one and rise. Aint nothin happen to Juvie, he bout to do a hotboy album with ya boy Lil weezy. oh another thing you old cats kill me, drugs play a major roll in Hip Hop period and just because a rapper dont do it, but he sales it or have sales it dont make it no better. You say u listen to jay what does he talk about on reasonable doubt. I rest my case

    Weezy is the man. He has so much potential. Even though I don’t always agree with his lyrics, I think Weezy is one of the best lyricist out there, for this time and day. I hope and pray that he understand the errors of his ways. And decided to become the man that he is meant to be. This man has a gift and is very intelligent. I feel that Weezy can be on top of world if he allows himself. I think he listens too much to his haters. When he decides to put the haters past him and stand up as the STRONG BLACK MAN that he is, he will go farther than he has ever been for. Go Weezy, MissVirtuous is always rooting for you!!!!!
