CASH MONEY RECORDS rap star LIL WAYNE appeared in ARIZONA Superior Court to face numerous drug charges YESTERDAY (5/6), ALLHIPHOP.COM reports. The rapper, who was hit with multiple drug charges and a weapons offense in JANUARY, entered a not guilty plea in court.
LIL WAYNE pled innocent to charges of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arrested on JANUARY 22nd, after DEA Agents stopped the rapper's tour bus near a border checkpoint in southwestern ARIZONA, about 75 miles east of YUMA. A Border Patrol dog alerted officials to the presence of drugs and a subsequent search of the bus uncovered 41 grams of ecstasy, four ounces of marijuana, a little over an ounce of cocaine and a .40 caliber pistol, which is registered to LIL WAYNE in FLORIDA.
