EL PASO, Texas — Authorities say Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has been arrested today in West Texas for marijuana possession.

Khalifa, a Pittsburgh Allderdice High School graduate, was stopped at an inspection checkpoint at the El Paso airport. A statement from El Paso police says because Khalifa traveled without identification, a search was ordered and Transportation Security Administration agents found a canister with marijuana. TSA alerted police, who then arrested Khalifa.

He was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and was released after posting $300 bail.

Court records do not list an attorney. A message left at Khalifa’s agency was not immediately returned.

Khalifa posted a photo on Twitter inside of what appeared to be a holding cell.
