[artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] isn’t allowed to drink alcohol for three years, according to Arizona probation documents obtained by TMZ.
According to the papers, the newly freed MC (born Dwayne Carter), who just wrapped up an eight-month prison bid for gun possession , “may not consume or drink any substance containing alcohol” under the provisions of his probation for a 2008 Arizona drug and weapons case. Weezy also cannot knowingly consort with any individual involved in criminal activity or anybody that has a criminal record without getting approval in writing from the probation department.
Additional terms make possessing toxic vapors, controlled substances or illegal drugs also off-limits to the MC. Wayne must submit to drug and alcohol testing. He could be sent back to prison to ride out the remainder of his time on probation if he fails to comply with the terms.
Wayne was taken into custody in January 2008 at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint, where authorities alleged that Ecstasy, cocaine and a handgun were found on the MC’s tour bus. Weezy copped a plea deal that has him doing mandatory community service, in addition to three years of unsupervised probation. Wayne pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a dangerous drug in exchange for the dismissal of three other drug and weapons charges.
If Wayne behaves himself throughout his probation, the severity of his original offense will be downgraded.
“Even though it’s treated as a felony while he’s on probation, if he completes his probation without any violations, the offense will be redesignated as a misdemeanor,” Wayne’s Arizona attorney, James Tilson, told MTV News on Tuesday.
Weezy is currently in celebration mode , with a major throwdown set to kick off in Miami Sunday. However, an expert recently told MTV News that, among the challenges that someone in Wayne’s position faces, he has to be careful not to overindulge in his newfound freedom.
“The danger is when you have been deprived of something and then get it in excess, you swallow it and take it up in excess and it becomes a rush, it becomes an extreme version,” said psychotherapist Allison Bobick, director of student advancement at New York’s Touro College Graduate School of Social Work. “They’re both extremes, and whenever you have those extremes, it prohibits you from living a healthy lifestyle.”
