Arrested rapper takes a 'cell-fie'
Don't they confiscate phones when you go behind bars anymore?
Rapper Wiz Khalifa (real name Cameron Thomaz) was arrested Sunday morning (25 May) after being stopped by a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer at the El Paso International Airport, E! News confirmed.
Why he was arrested isn't that much of a surprise. However, what he did during his "stay"' is much more interesting.
Khalifa, who didn't seem to be too concerned with his arrest, posted a picture on Twitter he appropriately titled "Jail selfie."
In fact, Wiz live-tweeted his arrest and jail stay.
He posted a photo of his cell door with the phrase "Free Trap Wiz" (fans later turned that into a hashtag), and revealed that he wanted to release new single "28 Grams" today, but he got "locced [sic] up."
The singer-songwriter was arrested after he was caught in possession of 0.5 grams of marijuana.
"The TSA Officer learned that Thomaz did not have any identification which led to him being sent for secondary screening," El Paso Chief of Police Gregory K. Allen said in a statement.
During that screening the TSA Officer found a metal container with the marijuana in the backpack.
