Lil Wayne has been charged with one count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, TMZ reports.
The charge stems from a December 2019 incident where federal agents searched Wayne’s plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport and found guns and drugs, but Wayne’s attorney Howard Srebnick claims his client was a passenger on the plane and was “cleared” to leave.
Srebnick says Lil Wayne was charged for possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage back in December.
“There is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person.”
He added, “The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.”
