Rock Star Lesson No. 6: Don’t keep drugs on your tour bus. Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had to learn that one the hard way. The prolific rapper’s tour bus was pulled over in Yuma, Arizona late last night when border patrol officials found a .40-caliber pistol, 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy and various drug paraphernalia. The DEA was immediately called, and Lil Wayne (real name Dwayne Carter) was taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine and ecstasy. Two associates of Wayne’s were also arrested.
This is Carter’s third arrest in four months; previously he was taken into custody on weapons charges in New York, and for an outstanding warrant in Idaho.
