Wiz Khalifa Busted for Marijuana Possession in Nashville

In one of the most unsurprising celebrity busts, rapper Wiz Khalifa was charged with marijuana possession while staying in a Nashville hotel.

According to E! News, Wiz (whose real name is Cameron Thomaz) got a visit from the Nashville Police Department after guests complained about a strong marijuana odor emanating from Wiz's room in the hotel.

The engaged rapper, 24, isn't exactly shy about his penchant for marijuana use -- but when the local law enforcement officials knocked on his hotel room's door, Wiz reportedly threw away the weed in an effort to avoid arrest.

But apparently the police officers actually saw the "Young, Wild and Free" singer trying to toss the blunt out the window of a hotel room that did indeed reek of marijuana smoke.

As the Tennessean reports, the police then asked Khalifa and his friend, Lonnie Howard, 27, if there was any more marijuana in the room, and they both said there wasn't. But during a routine search, the cops found more weed on Howard.

Howard and Khalifa finally confessed to the marijuana possession and were cited with a misdemeanor possession charge. Considering Khalifa and Howard had posted an incriminating photo on Instagram that very same day, it seems like a good thing the pals told the truth.

Khalifa and Howard have until May 14 to appear at the Davidson County courthouse for booking on the charges.
