A warrant has been issued for Wiz Khalifa's arrest.
The 26-year-old rapper failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance in El Paso yesterday for a hearing over a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
When Judge Ricardo Herrera learned neither the "We Dem Boyz" star - whose real name is Cameron Thomaz - nor his lawyer had arrived for the hearing, he issued an arrest warrant, TMZ reports. The charges stem from an arrest in May when the rapper - who has 17-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose - was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
The rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
A homeless man has been arrested for stalking Rihanna.
Kevin McGlynn, 53, was taken into custody on Thursday after leaving threatening notes at the star's rented New York home. The New York Post's Page Six reports he was charged with stalking, menacing and harassment and held without bail after writing a string of insulting notes and delivering them twice on July 8 and once on July 1.
Rihanna was forced to put her own sprawling estate in Pacific Palisades, California, on the market in May after owning it for just over a year. The "Stay" hitmaker was put off living at the house, as stalkers kept showing up unannounced.
The singer secured a three-year restraining order against Steveland Barrow in March 2013, after he broke into the property next door, which he wrongly believed to be her home. A judge also ordered Robert Melanson to stay at least 100 yards away from the "Umbrella" singer's house and, or, place of business, after the 26-year-old male trespasser was caught creeping around on her roof last June. In court documents, Rihanna, who was not at home at the time of either incident, wrote she feared for her safety because Robert was unstable and had a criminal history.
Ray J was arrested in Beverly Hills last night.
The R&B star, who is Brandy Norwood's younger brother, reportedly got into a violent confrontation and spat in a police officer's face at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that police were initially called to the scene because the 33-year-old star made contact with an unidentified woman's butt in the bar.
Although it was determined to be "incidental" and not sexual battery, Ray J was asked to leave the hotel, but he allegedly became belligerent and refused to leave so security made a citizen's arrest. The situation is said to have escalated further when law enforcement arrived at the scene and the "I Hit It First" hitmaker kicked out the back window of the police car and spat in an arresting officer's face as he was being handcuffed.
He was booked for trespassing, resisting arrest, vandalism and battery on a police officer, and later released.
Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession yesterday morning.
The 26-year-old rapper was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that the "Black And Yellow" hitmaker, who has 14-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose, was taken into custody and turned over to local police. The "We Dem Boyz" rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
Despite creating the hashtag "FreeTrapWiz," on Twitter and poking fun at the incident, he later hinted that he was becoming increasingly frustrated: "I wanna drop 28 Grams but they got me locced up. Soon as I get out, the tapes comin out. Fucc that... They're tryna figure out how many grams I had. How ironic [sic]."
Alec Baldwin believes he was arrested because of his celebrity status.
The 56-year-old actor was handcuffed and taken away in a police car on Tuesday after he was caught riding his bicycle the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, but he denies claims he shouted at the two female officers.
"They recognized me immediately. I saw the white female cop whisper to the Hispanic cop about who I was, and then they handcuffed me," he said.
The former 30 Rock star went on to tell the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column he felt he was targettd because of his fame and vowed to put up a legal fight. "There's a process hearing July 24, when all of this will come out," he added.
Alec Baldwin was arrested this morning.
The 56-year-old actor was handcuffed and taken away in a police car after he was caught riding his push bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in New York City, before going "ballistic" at the two arresting female officers.
The 30 Rock star was asked to provide identification following his arrest but after he failed to do so, he was taken into custody at 13th Precinct and given two summons, one for traffic violation and a second for disorderly conduct, according to the MailOnline. Alec was released from custody shortly afterwards and returned to his apartment in New York to be greeted by a flock of photographers and reporters.
The star had a disgruntled expression on his face as he made his way inside his home, before taking to his Twitter account to share his version of the event: "Officer Moreno arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave."
An intruder has been arrested inside Justin Bieber's home.
Qianying Zhao - who stands 5'5" and weighs just 110 lb - was discovered sleeping in a bedroom inside the pop star's Atlanta home by the niece of the property owner yesterday. She called police, who woke the woman and, when questioned, the alleged trespasser claimed she had met the "Beauty and a Beat" hitmaker on Twitter and was visiting him for a birthday party.
When she realized she was too late for the party, she instead found an open door and decided to let herself in to wait for the 20-year-old singer.
According to gossip website TMZ, Zhao was arrested for criminal trespass and placed into double-locked handcuffs with her hands behind her back. It is unclear whether Justin - who moved to Atlanta recently following a string of incidents and rows with his neighbors in California - was at home at the time of the incident.
Justin Bieber's bodyguard was reportedly arrested today.
The 19-year-old star's security guard was taken into police custody for questioning after being accused of stealing a photographer's camera while the singer was visiting an amusement park in Atlanta, Georgia. A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that one of the "Heartbreaker" hitmaker's guards got into an argument with the paparazzo and grabbed his camera before jumping into the star's Escalade and instructing their driver to flee the scene. Police officers later returned the camera to the photographer after locating it inside the vehicle that was parked outside the Canadian star's new rental home in the city.
Officers are still deciding whether to arrest the driver in connection with the incident.
Sam Worthington has been arrested for punching a photographer.
The Avatar actor is said to have rushed to his girlfriend Lara Bingle's defense when she was allegedly kicked in the shin by a paparazzo as the couple were leaving Cubbyhole bar in Greenwich Village, New York City. Sam was charged with assault and released on bail for reportedly punching the camera-wielding snapper in the face, and has been set a court date for February 26, the NYPD told TMZ.com.
The photographer, named Sheng Li, was arrested and booked for reckless endangerment, assault and harassment. During the scuffle, the Australian hunk is said to have referred to model Lara as his "wife," shouting at the photographer, "you kicked my wife."
However, a source told the MailOnline, "He would have been speaking figuratively. They are definitely not married, as far as I know." The couple were rumored to have tied the knot during a secret ceremony in Western Australia earlier this year and have been spotted wearing matching rings.
Justin Bieber was allegedly speeding hours before he was arrested in Miami last month.
The 19-year-old star was charged with driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving with an invalid license on January 23, but the singer's yellow rented Lamborghini reached 136 MPH at 1.23 a.m., long before he was pulled over by police shortly after 4 a.m.
According to data, obtained by TMZ.com, from the car's built-in GPS tracking system, which recorded its speed and location at all times, the vehicle clocked 108 MPH on the Julia Tuttle Causeway in Miami Beach and accelerated to 136 MPH within a minute while being driven to Set nightclub, where the singer arrived at 2:27 a.m. and partied for an hour before leaving. But the data also shows that Justin was cruising under the speed limit at 27 MPH when he was arrested and accused of drag racing at between 55 and 60 MPH for 15 blocks.
