Bench Warrant Issued For Lil Wayne In Arizona

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 03/17/10

Lil WayneDespite being behind bars, Lil Wayne is still enduring legal troubles.

Just this week, a judge issued a bench warrant for the rapper in Yuma, Arizona -- where he is facing drug and weapons charge -- because he didn't show for a court ordered appearance.

Obviously, Weezy couldn't appear since he's currently serving a one year prison sentence for a separate gun charge in New York.

Lil Wayne's attorney, James Tilson, told the AP that his client couldn't appear because of his current incarceration and filed motions to have his Arizona gun trial moved to a later date.

"It does not appear that a trial will be occurring anytime within the next eight to 12 months," Tilson said.

Yuma County prosecutor Deann Sandry said it was the state's position that Lil Wayne is now a convicted felon and that a bench warrant should be issued and his bond be increased to $150,000.

The drug and gun charges stem from a January 2008 arrest in Yuma, where his tour bus was stopped and searched at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint. During the search, DEA agents confiscated 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine and 41 grams of ecstasy pills, said reports.

Wayne is facing three felony charges, and has pleaded not guilty.

    If he was a RESPONSIBLE man he'd be cool. But he still does dumb shit. There are places to do that sort of thing if that's what he desires but it seems the older he gets, nothing changes. You're supposed to get wiser as you get older, not stay a fool! He better get his act together or he'll keep getting incarcerated and not be able to help with all those babies he's been bringing into this world!

    Im Lil Waynes biggest fan and I love Lil Waynes music videos and his rap songs but this was just stupid period. Thankfully he has supposedly grown up while in prison and says that he will come out a wiser and smarter individual as he has to remember that as a rap star hes also a role model to lots of kids who look up to him. I have to confess though that I cannot wait till he gets out because even though i watch lots of Rap & Hip hop music videos Lil Wayne is one of the very best rap music artists out there.
