While the rest of the world was enjoying the weekend, Lil Wayne (born Dwayne Carter) was busy posing for mugshots at the Ada County Jail in Boise, Idaho. Wayne was popped by Boise law enforcement on a felony warrant from a drug possession charge. Police learned that the New Orleans rapper was performing at the Quest Arena, but allowed him to conclude his concert before deciding to make their move.
The Cash Money rapper is scheduled to be formally charged Tuesday, when he’ll be given the option to waive his extradition to Georgia.
Wayne is billed to perform at next week’s BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, GA. It’s unknown whether the arrest will taint his appearance at the show. Wayne is up for seven nominations at this year’s awards.
