The Wayne Game

A bench warrant was issued for Lil’ Wayne after the rapper failed to appear for a final trial management conference in Yuma, Ariz., March 16.

But the rapper had a good reason for his absence. Defense attorneys pointed out that the Grammy-winning artist is currently serving a one-year sentence in a New York City jail for a weapons violation.

Lil’ Wayne was arrested in January 2008 when authorities found cocaine, Ecstasy and a gun onboard his tour bus during a stop at a border checkpoint near Yuma.
