Lil Wayne Gets Probation In AZ Case; Must Avoid Liquor, Drugs
Rapper Lil Wayne will preside over a welcome home party this Saturday in Miami at popular strip club King of Diamonds, but he will not be drinking any alcohol.
Lil Wayne was sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation and 360 hours of community service for a 2008 arrest, in which border patrol agents found cocaine, ecstasy and a handgun on his tour bus.
He appeared in court today (November 5th) in Yuma, Arizona and pled guilty to one count of felony possession of a dangerous drug. The more serious charges of gun possession and drug possession were thrown out.
According to the terms of his probation, Lil Wayne has been banned from consuming alcohol for the next three years.
The rap star, who was just released from Rikers Island after serving eight months on a separate gun charge, is also banned from associating with any person with a criminal record without prior written approval, or from knowingly associating with any person engaged in criminal activity.
Additionally, Lil Wayne, who's love of marijuana and other narcotics is well documented, cannot possess or use illegal drugs, toxic vapors or controlled substances.
Lil Wayne must submit to random drug and alcohol testing.
