Wiz Khalifa: Arrest warrant out for rapper after he skips court date

The rapper, 26, real name Cameron Thomaz, failed to make the scheduled appearance in an El Paso misdemeanor court on Wednesday

Wiz Khalifa is wanted by police after he skipped a court date in West Texas.

The rapper, 26, real name Cameron Thomaz, failed to make the scheduled appearance in an El Paso misdemeanor court on Wednesday on a marijuana possession charge, online court records show.

As a result, County Court-at-Law Judge Ricardo Herrera has issued a bench warrant for Khalifa’s arrest.

Khalifa was first arrested at El Paso International Airport on 25 May.

The hip-hop star – who had just performed at local music festival Neon Desert – was initially stopped because Transportation Security Administration discovered that he was travelling without identification.

“[This] led to him being sent for secondary screening,” officials explained.

 

“During that screening, the TSA officer located a metal container inside of the backpack which contained a prohibited item.”

While he was detained, the rapper whiled away the time by tweeting about his experience, even sharing a ‘jail selfie’ (as above), and launching the hashtag #FreeTrapWiz.

He was later released on a $300 bail.

So, where is Khalifa and what is he doing?

Not an awful lot, and probably at home, if these Instagram shots of his scantily clad wife Amber Rose – posted in the last few hours and captioned ‘Woman Crush Wednesday’ – are anything to go by:
