Lil' Flip Charged with Credit Card Abuse

  /  07.22.2007


The Houston Chronicle reports that Lil’ Flip was arrested and charged with credit/debit card abuse in Houston Saturday. The 26-year-old rapper, born Wesley Eric Weston Jr., turned himself in around 2:30 p.m. at Harris County Courthouse 21 and was released on $2,000 bond.

Weston is accused of buying a $671 Southwest Airlines ticket to Baltimore from Houston on June 8 with an American Express card held by a man identified as Jordan Salinger. Salinger, whose relationship, if any, with Weston is unknown, told authorities he did not authorize the purchase.

“It has more to do with people around him, and not the man himself. The man is not a criminal; he’s never been in trouble,” said community activist Quanell X, speaking on behalf of Weston.

Lil’ Flip is due in court on Monday.
