Arrest Warrant Issued On Lil Flip For Missing Court Date On Assault Rifle & Weed Charges
Lil Flip has turned a bad situation into a worse one. The Houston rapper was busted in Louisiana last Christmas after police found weed and an AR-15 assault rifle during a traffic stop. He was charged with possession of a firearm, possession of a schedule 1 narcotic (weed), and speeding.
After bailing out of jail, Flip, real name Wesley Eric Weston, vowed to fight the charges. He showed TMZ his Texas concealed handgun permit that was good in Louisiana and 22 other states. The rapper also claimed the weed the police found was actually “Black and Mild” wine flavored cigars and clove cigarettes.
In February he pleaded not guilty to all charges. He was scheduled to appear back in court this month, but didn’t show. The judge in the case immediately issued a warrant for his arrest.
