  • EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Authorities say rapper Wiz Khalifa has been arrested in West Texas for marijuana possession.

    The performer from Cannonsburg, Pennsylvania, was stopped at an inspection checkpoint at the El Paso airport. A statement from El Paso police says because Khalifa traveled without identification, a search was ordered and Transportation Security Administration agents found a canister with marijuana. TSA alerted police, who then arrested Khalifa.

    He was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.

    Court records do not list an attorney. A message left at Khalifa’s agency was not immediately returned.

    Khalifa posted a photo on Twitter inside of what appeared to be a holding cell.

    Khalifa was born Cameron Thomaz in Minot, North Dakota. He was a headliner at an El Paso music festival Saturday.
