Wiz Khalifa Arrested On Drug Charges In NC

Submitted by on November 9, 2010 – 11:30 am2 Comments

Wiz Khalifa was arrested last night in Greenville, North Carolina and charged with a felony count of trafficking in his favorite substance, marijuana.

Wiz, born Cameron Thomaz, was also charged with a felony count of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle/place for sale or storage of marijuana and one misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked into Pitt County Detention Center in the early hours of the morning and released approximately seven hours later after posting a whopping $300,000 bail (guess his personalized rolling papers have been a success).

Police took the rapper, who boasts a $10,000-a-month weed habit, into custody after searching his tour bus after a performance at East Carolina University as part of his current Waken Baken tour. According to MTV News, nine other people were arrested along with Khalifa on the same charges and were still in jail at press time.

Wiz tweeted after the ordeal:
