El Paso - A warrant has been issued for rapper Wiz Khalifa's arrest after he skipped a court date on a marijuana possession charge in West Texas.
Online court records show the 26-year-old performer, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, failed to appear for a scheduled Wednesday arraignment in an El Paso County misdemeanour court. So County Court-at-Law Judge Ricardo Herrera issued a bench warrant for Khalifa's arrest.
The case started on 25 May when Khalifa was arrested at El Paso International Airport after airport security officers reported finding a small canister of marijuana on him.
Khalifa had been departing after appearing at a local music festival. Instead, he was charged with misdemeanour possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.
Court records do not list an attorney.
