Wiz Khalifa Arrest Warrant Issued

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Legal Issues,

Wiz KhalifaA warrant has been issued for Wiz Khalifa's arrest.

The 26-year-old rapper failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance in El Paso yesterday for a hearing over a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.

When Judge Ricardo Herrera learned neither the "We Dem Boyz" star - whose real name is Cameron Thomaz - nor his lawyer had arrived for the hearing, he issued an arrest warrant, TMZ reports. The charges stem from an arrest in May when the rapper - who has 17-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose - was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.

The rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Drugs, Legal Issues,

Amanda BynesAmanda Bynes has been released from police custody.

The She's The Man star appeared in court in New York City on Friday morning, where she was formally charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession. The troubled starlet was booked for drug possession on Thursday evening when police visited her apartment after receiving a report of a disorderly person.

During the hearing, the 27-year-old actress denied throwing a bong out the window in front of arresting officers, and also accused them of "roughing her up." She claimed she was "improperly arrested" because the object she threw was "just a vase," according to gossip website TMZ.com. An arresting officer is quoted as saying in the criminal complaint, "I observed [Amanda] grab said bong, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below."

The judge waived bail but warned the actress that an arrest warrant would be issued if she misses her court date in July.

Amanda Bynes' parents are trying to get her placed under a conservatorship.

The troubled star was booked for drug possession on Thursday evening when police visited her New York City apartment after receiving a report of a disorderly person. Amanda - who was spotted smoking a joint in the lobby and behaved erratically throughout the incident - was taken to hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, before being arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, as well as reckless endangerment and felony tampering with evidence when she attempted to throw a bong out of the window.

Brooke Mueller Pleads Guilty to Cocaine Possession

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Drugs, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Brooke MuellerBrooke Mueller has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession.

The reality TV star appeared in a court room in Aspen, Colorado, today after being arrested last December for possession of a class-A drug as well as assault for allegedly hitting another woman in a nightclub.

Although the assault charges were dropped because there wasn't enough evidence, Brooke pleaded guilty to cocaine possession, according to RadarOnline.com. Under the terms of her plea deal, Brooke - who was recently released from rehab after completing 90 days treatment for drug addiction - must continue her outpatient drug treatment, and if she completes all terms of her probation, the possession charge will be dismissed in a year.

Brooke is determined to stay clean for the sake of her sons. "She's serious about staying clean, she's now living with a sober living companion, and going to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings. She is hopeful that her recovery from drugs and alcohol will be sustained and lifelong. The only thing she is taking is vitamins. The main focus in Brooke's life right now is being the best mom possible to Bob and Max and staying sober," said a source.


Brooke Mueller’s Assault Charge ‘to be Dismissed’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: D-List, Drugs, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Brooke MuellerBrooke Mueller's assault charge is "likely to be dismissed."

The 34-year-old star - who has two-year-old twin sons Bob and Max with ex-husband Charlie Sheen - was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, last December for the alleged assault of Llana Little and possession of cocaine.

However, while she will still face a judge in several weeks under the drugs charges, the battery case looks likely to be thrown out of court due to lack of evidence.

"The assault charge will likely be dismissed because the evidence just doesn't prove that Brooke touched Llana Little. The women exchanged heated words, but Brooke is absolutely adamant that she didn't lay a finger on Llana and the district attorney is inclined at this point to recommend the charge be dismissed. This doesn't mean that Brooke is totally off the hook though. She will plead no contest to a misdemeanor cocaine possession charge and she will likely be sentenced to community service and ordered to pay a fine. She won't do any jail time though because she is considered a first time offender and this is the sentence that anyone in a similar situation would face," a source told RadarOnline.com.

No further details about the rehab center will be released, according to Honig: "She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment.

The reality TV star - who has two-year-old twins, Bob and Max, with the former Two and a Half Men actor - was arrested in Aspen, Colorado on Friday after being found in possession of a large amount of cocaine. A spokesman for the City of Aspen and Pitkin County Police said, "Officers with the Aspen Police Department were on a routine walk through when they contacted a woman who reported an assault which had taken place. The woman identified Brooke Mueller as the aggressor. Mueller was arrested and charged with assault in the third degree and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute."

If she is found guilty in the drug charge, Brooke - who has battled drink and drug addictions in the past and has received treatment in rehab - could face up to six years in prison. "When someone is found to have more than a certain amount of the drug they are charged with intent to distribute," a police spokesman said.

Brooke has now been released after posting her $11,000 but must return for a District Court hearing on December 19.
