Rapper Wiz Khalifa had charges of drug trafficking from November dropped. Wiz was arrested by police right before getting on the stage at East Carolina University and charged with drug trafficking and released on $300,000 bond (see here). The charges were thrown out, it looks like the 2 ounces of weed found on Khalifa’s bus weren’t enough to be considered trafficking, you need about 10 lbs. for that. Also, three members of Khalifa’s crew staked claim to the stash, each having to pay a $1000 and court costs.

Should Khalifa have gone down for those two ounces or was he profiled?

Terrell Owens May Go To Jail Over Child Support

Looks like Terrell Owens may be headed to the slammer over failure to pay child support. TO’s baby mama Melanie Paige Smith has filed a petition with a judge to throw him in jail for not paying a $5,000 a month stipend. Owens has not paid for the months of August or September and didn’t pay the full child support payment for June and July. Terrell blames the NFL lockout, saying he’s only able to pay half of the monthly stipend. The judge could decide to jail TO and force him to pay all back child support and lawyers’ fees, but we’ll have to await that decision to come down.

Terrell Owens is the star of the T.O. Show on VH1

He says he doesn’t have it, do you believe him? Should he be allowed to pay less in child support?
