In a truly stunning turn of events this morning, Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas this morning.

According to local authorities, a "green leafy substance" was found on the artist during a TSA check as the artist was trying to fly from El Paso to Dallas.

Khalifa was subsequently taken into custody at the airport and turned over to police.

Cops tell TMZ that Mr. Amber Rose was in possession of 0.5 grams of weed at the scene.

Said El Paso Chief of Police Gregory K. Allen via statement:

"The TSA Officer learned that [Wiz Khalifa] did not have any identification which led to him being sent for secondary screening. During that screening the TSA Officer located a metal container inside of the backpack which contained a prohibited item."

Khalifa eventually posted $300 bond and was released... but not before he also posted a selfie. From jail.

The rapper also put a photo online of his cell door with the phrase "Free Trap Wiz" (followers later turned that into a hashtag) - and revealed that he hoped to drop his new single "28 Grams" today, but he got "locced [sic] up."

It was a tough break for the Wiz.
