Paul Wall - Rappers Paul Wall And Baby Bash Arrested Over Drug Possession
Rapper pals Paul Wall and Baby Bash were arrested in Texas on Saturday night (10Sep11) for marijuana possession.
The pair - real names Paul Michael Slayton and Ronald Ray Bryant - was taken into custody in El Paso and charged with possession of less than two ounces of the drug following a concert at Buchanan's Event Center.
They were released 12 hours later after paying a $300 (£1,870) bond each.
Wall boasted about the bust on Twitter.com, uploading a photo of the pair handcuffed in the back of a police vehicle.
He writes, "Fresh out the El Paso County jail wit(h) BabyBash... in the same tank they held Willie Nelson/Johnny Cash."
But Baby Bash accused cops of targeting them because of their star status, adding, "Ain't 2much worse than a Hoe A** Punk El Paso Cop that abuses his authority, just cuz me and Paul Wall are artists!
"I'm not here to diss All police, they have a tuff (tough) gig and I respect that! But u have the One or Two that will disrespect & abuse the power cuz maybe they got picked on in high school alot (sic) and now have a chip on they're (sic) shoulder, and that's exactly wut (what) happened to us, all we did was Smell like weed and wen (when) he couldn't find it and we didn't snitch on who sparked it he got overdramatic and took us in!
"He found out who we were and really got big shot on us! Haha even his partner said he's a d**k."
