Gun Admitted As Evidence In Lil Wayne’s NYC Weapons Case

A judge has ruled that a .40 Caliber pistol found on Lil Wayne’s tour bus during his arrest in New York City two years ago can be used as evidence in his weapons case, according to the Associated Press.

Weezy was busted after his concert at Manhattan’s Beacon Theater in July of 2007 when a police officer entered his tour bus claiming she smelled marijuana. Once onboard, she claimed she witnessed Weezy attempting to hide the gun. Wayne’s defense lawyer Stacey Richman disputed that the officer falsely claimed that she smelled smoke in order to illegally get into the vehicle.

As previously reported the Cash Money star’s assistant, Terry Bourgeois, testified he did not see Wayne with a firearm on the night in question, but admitted that marijuana is “something we always have around.”

Justice Charles Solomon ordered Weezy to appear back in court on April 20th. The New Orleans-bred rapper pleaded not guilty to the gun possession charges and is currently free on $70,000 bail. – Evanka Williamson
