Twista Continues to Fight Marijuanna Charges

Chicago rapper, Twista, pleads not guilt on April 11th to a marijuanna charge that he caught late March.

According to TMZ, Twista’s legal team suspects that the rapper was profiled the night of his arrest.

Twista was pulled over in Valparaiso, IN before his show on March 24. He was riding in a Rolls-Royce Phantom, which is what his attorney, Lakeisha Murdaugh, believes caught the cops’ attention.

Porter County Sheriff David Reynolds said Cpl. Paul Czupryn pulled the rapper’s vehicle over  because the driver was following a truck too closely. When the cops approached their vehicle, they smelled marijuanna. The cops searched the vehicle and found weed and arrested Twista and the rest of the passengers. The next day (March 25), Twista posted bail for $500.

Still having to face 180 days in jail and up to $1000 in fines, Murdaugh believes her clients were profiled. She told TMZ that she wants to review all police transmissions from that night to see what caught the cops’ attention.

Twista’s trial will begin on August 18.
