Comon now….it’s Warren G! We already know he’s a weed smoker…and judging from the amount of bail, the amount found was probably just their stash for the night. Don’t believe me….well, check out Warren G. & Ron Isley Smoking Out after the jump…
Yet another one for the mugshot gallery! NBA star Carmelo Anthony, 23, was arrested by Colorado police and charged with drunk driving. According to the cops, Melo was pulled over after police saw his silver Mercedes weaving and failing to dim its lights. He subsequently failed a series of field sobriety tests and was taken to a Denver Police Department lockup where he consented to a blood test and posed for the above mug shot. (Source)
Yet another mug shot to add to your hip hop collection…. Rapper Lil Wayne aka Dwayne Carter was arrested at a Border Patrol checkpoint in Arizona and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of ecstasy and possession of drug paraphernalia!
Cops say they found 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy pills on his tour bus — after they stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.
Police also found $22,000 in cash and a 40-caliber pistol, but Wayne, we’re told, does have a permit to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Florida. They tell us they’re checking to see if that carries over to Arizona. (Source)
Wierd thing is, his bond was set at $10,000…which seems MIGHTY low for such serious charges. Either he is one lucky sumt’n or we’re not hearing the entire story… stay tuned.
