Lil Wayne is all smiles for a reason. A big one! A huge weight has been lifted off his shoulders since a Fulton County judge just dismissed the felony drug charges that were brought against him in the ‘A’. If you recall, Wayne was arrested in August 2006 at the Twelve Hotel at Atlantic Station after Atlanta police said they found unmarked bottles containing hydrocodone and a generic form of Xanax along with two marijuana joints.
The State’s prosecutors must have really effed this one up because we all know the real deal. Hell…Wayne even wrote a song about what’s in his styrofoam cup. *smh*
“The testimony by the State’s witnesses had numerous inconsistencies in material evidence provided at this hearing, especially when compared to the written police reports that had been created … by two of the three officers who entered the hotel rooms at the Twelve Hotel,” Johnson wrote in a document filed Tuesday.
Carter’s attorney, William “Bubba” Head, said his client wasn’t staying in the room where the arrest was made.
“It was a changing room,” he said.
The Georgia case had its share of twists and turns. Carter was arrested on a fugitive warrant in October 2007 for failing to appear at a court date in Fulton County. But Head said his client never received the summons because it was sent to his former home in New Orleans, which had been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
“He didn’t even know there were charges pending,” his Atlanta-based attorney said.

I just bet they couldn’t be reached. They’re probably too dayum embarrassed! Lil Wayne is not all the way out of the clear though. He still has a few other states where his legal troubles haven’t just disappeared into thin air. Wayne has an upcoming court date on a weapons charge in New York and also still has to answer to multiple felony drug charges in Arizona where he and four others were arrested by Border Patrol agents who stopped his tour bus near Yuma. Police canines reportedly recovered 3.7 ounces of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy on the bus.
I’m sure Lil Wayne will continue to rock on. Eff what ya heard! Peep his new video for “Prom Queen” below:
