GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Rapper Wiz Khalifa and 10 of his colleagues have been arrested on marijuana charges in North Carolina.
East Carolina University spokesman John Durham said Tuesday that police arrested the rapper, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, shortly after a campus concert Monday night. Durham says officers had noticed a prevalent odor of marijuana around the backstage area.
Each of those arrested was charged with three drug counts, including maintaining a place for the sale of marijuana.
Officials at the Pitt County Detention Center said Pittsburgh-based Thomaz posted $300,000 bond Tuesday morning. His record company did not immediately return a message seeking comment, but Thomaz posted a message on Twitter saying, “jail sux.”
