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.

Russell Brand Hands Himself Over to Police

Russell BrandRussell Brand has handed himself over to police today after a warrant was issued for his arrest in the US.

The Arthur star turned himself into custody after law enforcement in New Orleans issued a warrant following his throwing of a photographer's phone into the window of a nearby office building on Monday. Although the window was repaired for $240 soon after the incident, the warrant continued to stand.

Russell - who is in the city shooting a movie - was being held on $5,000 bail for simple criminal damage, but has paid the money and has since been released, according to X17Online.com.

In a police report, paparazzo Timothy Jackson claims he was with a group of photographers when he spotted the star and began taking pictures of him on his phone from his car. Russell took the phone and threw it at an office window. A man from inside the office said the actor offered to pay for the damage and that the phone was returned to the photographer.

Lindsay Lohan Vindicated by Alcohol Test

Lindsay Lohan at the MTV Movie AwardsUPDATE: New sources say that Lindsay’s alcohol level was 0.4 when the SCRAM bracelet alert went off.

Much to people’s disbelief, tested negative for alcohol following a recent alert from her SCRAM bracelet.

Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, revealed that a urine test extracted shortly after the alert tested negative, proving the troubled starlet’s unwavering statements about her innocence to be true.

The actress, despite her strict bail requirements, was all too tempted to attend an MTV Movie Awards after party earlier this month; at the soiree, Lohan’s alcohol monitoring bracelet went off, blinking a red light through her boots (she later denied this, claiming that the light came from a bracelet her friend had given her).

Faster than anyone could say, “I Know Who Killed Me,” a warrant was issued… and then later recalled once Lohan coughed up a cool 10% of the bail—$20,000. The district attorney’s office previously said that the alert was “an alcohol-related violation.”

No word yet as to what actually set off the alert.

Warrant for Lindsay Lohan Recalled

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan should have limited her appearance to the red carpet.

Following the ceremony, Linds partied a little too hard - or at least, that’s the story her SCRAM bracelet tells. After Lohan’s alcohol-monitoring device went off Sunday night, alerting authorities that she was in violation of her parole, a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.

The warrant was later recalled after a bail bondsman posted $20,000 - 10% of her $200,000 bail - to keep free from custody.

The actress turned to her - predictably - to deny the allegations that she violated her parole. Linds wrote: “My scram wasn’t set off-Its physically impossible considering I’ve nothing for it to go off-All of these false resports are absolutely wrong.”
