Waka Flocka Flame Cleared Of Drug Charges

5 May 2011
A grand jury in Henry County, Georgia, cleared Waka Flocka Flame of drug charges related to a raid of his home in late 2010. Authorities lacked sufficient evidence to justify taking the Atlanta rapper to trial, according to TMZ.



On December 16, Waka's home was raided by Atlanta authorities amid rumors that it was being used to house a prostitution ring, which reps for the "No Hands" rapper vehemently denied. Waka wasn't home at the time it was searched. However, his manager/mother, Deb Antney, and Gucci Mane, were there and subsequently detained by police for a short time. A warrant for Waka's arrest was issued but he didn't turn himself in until January 3, when he was booked on charges that included possession of marijuana and Hydrocodone, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violation of probation for driving on a suspended license.

Waka was released a couple of days later after posting a $31,950 bond. The only charges that eventually made it to the grand jury (all the others were dropped) were for possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana measuring less than an ounce.

Waka (born Juaquin Malphurs) let his Twitter followers know about his good fortune yesterday. "All charges droped from when police ran N my house #GoDsGooD #squad," he tweeted.

In April, Waka appeared on MTV News' "RapFix Live" and relayed that he plans to avoid any future legal entanglements. "A lot of situations I probably put myself into," Waka admitted. "So you just learn from your mistakes."
