UPDATE: Lil Wayne Avoids Charges, Reschedules Show
Lil Wayne will not face drug charges related to a raid of the rapper’s tour bus yesterday (December 18) in Falfurrias, Texas.
The rapper and 11 members of his entourage were detained yesterday by United States Border Patrol, after drug sniffing dogs caught the scent of marijuana on two tour buses.
A search of the vehicles turned up an undisclosed amount of the drug. A lawyer for the rapper told TMZ.com that several members in the group were given citations, although Lil Wayne was not one of them.
The detainment caused Lil Wayne to miss a scheduled performance at The Laredo Entertainment Center last night, although the show has been rescheduled to take place tonight (December 19).
Lil Wayne is slated to begin a year-long prison sentence in February after pleading guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon, after a police officer found a .40 caliber pistol on the rapper’s tour bus in New York in 2007.
