Wiz Khalifa Arrested on Marijuana Charges

Wiz Khalifa was arrested last night following a performance in Greenville, North Carolina, putting a temporary stop on his current “Waken Baken Tour 2010.” Following his show at East Carolina University, the Pittsburgh-based rapper was charged with several marijuana violations, including trafficking marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a place to sell marijuana.

According to The Daily Reflector, Wiz, who was arrested at 1:40 a.m., was incarcerated in Pitt County Detention Center and released on $300,000 bond at 8 a.m. this morning. Though it’s unclear if arrests are connected, nine others were booked into the jail at the same time as Wiz for the same charges, with marijuana possession as the central theme for the arrests.

The “Black and Yellow” MC, born Cameron Jibril Thomaz, is currently on a 60-city North American trek with rappers Big K.R.I.T., Smoke DZA, and Curren$y, with the tour wrapping on November 21 in Boston. Check below to see a fan-filmed video of Wiz’s arrest from afar.
