Lil Wayne Issued Bench Warrant In Arizona

Published March 19, 2010

Even while serving time, Lil Wayne’s legal woes won’t go away. According to TMZ.com, Weezy has been issued a bench warrant in Arizona for missing a scheduled court date.

Lil Wayne (born Dwayne Carter) was scheduled to appear in a Yuma County courthouse due to a drug-related arrest where authorities discovered 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy pills and a .40 caliber handgun on his tour bus.

Though Wayne is currently incarcerated on Rikers Island in New York for another gun charge, Yuma County officials still issued the warrant for the missed court date. Weezy’s legal team has yet to respond to the bench warrant.
