Cash Money Records rapper Lil’ Wayne was arrested this morning (October 6) in Boise, Idaho, following a concert at Boise’s Qwest Arena last night.
Police booked the rapper into the Ada County Jail around 7:30 am for being a Fugitive in the state of Idaho, because of an arrest warrant issued in Fulton, County Georgia.
According to Boise city police, Lil’ Wayne, born Dwight Michael Carter Jr., was arrested on a felony warrant out of Fulton County, Georgia, for felony possession of drugs.
The rapper was taken into custody without incident and will remain in custody until his arraignment and extradition hearing, which takes place on Monday (October 9).
The arrest warrant stems from an August 14, 2006 incident in Atlanta, Georgia, in which Lil’ Wayne was arrested on drug possession charges.
In that incident, police were called to Lil’ Wayne’s hotel room, after a housekeeper found marijuana in plain view.
In addition to the marijuana, police found 60 pills of Alprazolam and 59 pills of hydrocodone.
In July 2007, Lil’ Wayne was arrested after his first performance in New York, after police allegedly witnessed him smoking marijuana near his tour bus.
Police searched the bus and found a .40-caliber pistol.
Lil’ Wayne and a companion were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and possession of marijuana.
Representatives for Lil’ Wayne were not available for comment as of press time.
