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 XXLmag.com 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

    I hope they throw the book at this bitch ass nigga . . .but then again Wayne will enjoy being locked with a bunch of dudes. He’ll probably drop the soap on purpose

      hate hate and more hate…eat shit you dickhead. I will fart in your mom’s face nigga.

    Alot of the hate this guy recieves is valid, and some its not. As far as kissing dudes thats valid hate right there(picture’s say a million words). But as far as his music goes he’s real nice. The Carter 3 was dissapointing in my opinion. I’ve listened to this guy throughout his whole carreer, and dude is startin to fall off. He went from last year and the year prior releasing a heated song almost every week. He’s still doin it but only one out of five of those songs are good. He needs to go to jail to write some decent fucking rhymes. But good luck to him man nobody deserves to go away, unless your a goof, or a women beater.

    His fans are probably way more concerned about him getting locked up than he is.

    He knows he’s not going to do any jail time. But, @ the rate he’s going, the East Coast powers that be aren’t going to be so friendly.

    He’s burning hella bridges out there.

    They should lock him up for fucking up hip hop.

  • Jhon da Analyst

    Yeah, the NY judicial system will fuck u around for real. Ask Tupac. However, if you got the chedder, you’ll be good. $70,000 bail for an unloaded weapon?? GTFOH!!!!!! Jersey tried to get me on some shit in ’89 but I got out ROR and then they dismissed the charges if I let them keep the weapon. Fuck it!! U can have it. Thank u DA Donohue……..u dick

    GREETINGS HUMANS!

    MUCH LOVE AND SUPPORT TO MR. CARTER. MAY JUSTICE PREVAIL…JUST BECAUSE YOU EXPRESS YOUR TALENTS AND MAKE A EXTREME AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR…THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU ARE EXEMPT FROM YOUR RIGHTS THAT ARE PROVIDED BY THE CONSTITUTION.

    MR. WEEZY DESERVES A FAIR TRIAL. THE CHARACTER OF THE OFFICER THAT CLAIMED TO HAVE SMELLED THE TREES PRIOR TO COMING ON THE TOUR BUS IS IN QUESTION.

    THE HIP HOP POLICE ARE REAL. HIP HOP SPEAK UP FOR SOMEONE WHO REFUSED TO LET YOU DIE….THE PERSONIFICATION OF OUR MUSIC AND CULTURE NEEDS US TO OPERATE OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT…

    TODAY IT’S DWANYE MICHEAL CARTER, JR….NEXT IT MAY BE YOU…. FEAST FOR THOUGHT.

    100 LOVE.
    HIP HOP JOURNALIST.

    In the words of the late great Bernie Mac….Didn’t I tell u?..Didn’t I mothafuckin tell you!..lol. Like I predicted when he said that stupid shit when he was bein interviewed by Ms. Katie..lol talking about he a gangsta on national fucking tv saying he smoke weed….I said he will be dead or in jail before the end of 09 & that “Ms. Katie” interview probably will be used as evidence on his stupid black gizmo gremlin lookin ass. Now dont get it twisted I hate 2 see any nigga lose his life or go to jail, but when you say shit like “I’m 2 cool 2 read” “I smoke marijuana” & “I’m a GANGSTA, I do what I wanna do” what ya black ass expect when its hip hop police runnin around….Lil Wayne = Goofy Mark lol
