Lil Wayne’s Arizona Drug & Weapons Case Delayed

Lil Wayne’s attorneys were granted more time to build their defense yesterday (August 13) in the rapper’s drug and weapons case in Yuma, Arizona, stemming from a January 2008 arrest.

According to local Arizona news network, KYMA, during the hearing on Thursday, Weezy’s lawyers requested an order for evidence from the scene and questioned the training of the dogs used in searching the rapper’s tour bus last year.

As previously reported Wayne was put in cuffs last January after authorities searched his vehicle at a border patrol checkpoint and allegedly turned up cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy and a firearm.

In addition to getting more time to build their case, the judge has allowed Wayne’s lawyers to interview the dog handlers.

Wayne has plead not guilty in the case. Another hearing is scheduled for Ocotober 1, when the judge will determine a trial date. –Max G
