Weezy F Baby (also known as Lil Wayne) was arrested and taken into custody Friday night after a concert performance on a felony warrant stemming from a drug possession charge.
Doney said police received information Carter was wanted but allowed him to perform before they arrested him. The officers were in touch with the Georgia law enforcement agency, though Doney could not identify which one. Boise police gang detectives who were at the concert to monitor the crowd confirmed that Carter had an outstanding warrant, and undercover detectives arrested him, Doney said. Carter was arrested without incident and was “compliant” with officers, the lieutenant said.
It’s not clear whether Carter’s drug possession charge stems from inside Fulton County. Spokespeople for the Atlanta and Fulton County police departments, as well as the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, could not determine late Saturday night whether their agencies issued the warrant for Carter. If so, it wouldn’t be Carter’s first arrest in Fulton County; his record includes a 2005 drug arrest in Atlanta.
Word on the block is that Weezy’s supposed to be performing this weekend at the BET Hip-Hop Awards show in Atlanta. It’s unknown whether or not he will be released by then.
