Rapper Wiz Khalifa Arrested In Texas For Pot

Getty Images North America
EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Authorities say rapper Wiz Khalifa has been arrested in West Texas for marijuana possession.

The performer from Cannonsburg, Pennsylvania, was stopped at an inspection checkpoint at the El Paso airport. A statement from El Paso police says because Khalifa traveled without identification, a search was ordered and Transportation Security Administration agents found a canister with marijuana. TSA alerted police, who then arrested Khalifa.

He was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.

Court records do not list an attorney. A message left at Khalifa's agency was not immediately returned.

Khalifa posted a photo on Twitter inside of what appeared to be a holding cell.

Khalifa was born Cameron Thomaz in Minot, North Dakota. He was a headliner at an El Paso music festival Saturday.

It isn't the pot that makes some of us scratch our heads in collective wonder, it's being so stupid as to try and get through a TSA checkpoint in an airport while carrying something illegal and not having ID.

That wasn't a brainfart, it was completely stupid. Or arrogant. Was it that he figured his star status would give him a pass?

El Paso, Texas cops . . . . . WILL bust blacks for MJ. Just saying. . .
Just reading the newspaper and SEEING the photos.
"90+% Hispanic cops" DO NOT tolerate blacks doing any illegal crap whatsoever.
Snoop Dog also arrested in El Paso for MJ a few years back.
They are watching you. . . . .
The 99% Hispanic neighbors will turn you in.
Just saying. . . .

Willie got busted OUTSIDE of El Paso, down there where The Sheriff runs things in Sierra Blanca (100 miles from El Paso) where Steven Seagal volunteered to "Help" the Sheriff
and he because a Dep. Sheriff. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !
Willie is not black, but his bus got searched in Sierra Blanca at the unofficial Nazi checkpoint on the highway where they can search you and your vehicle without cause or a warrant.
You see, they are LOOKING for illegal Mexicans hidden in cars and busses, so they can search every vehile, if they want.
Sometimes it is a ROAD BLOCK and they search every car.
Disrupts traffic from Dallas to Tucson and on. They BLOCK the highway and all side/ bypass roads that go around the check point.

ALL roads leaving El Paso Texas are BLOCKED and any car can be searched without a warrant.
All bypass roads, around the Checkpoint are also blocked or watched by hellicopter to see who goes around the Chgeckpoint,
and of course, they REALLY get searched.
