Gets Off Easy
in Infamous Jail Selfie Case

The Wiz Khalifa arrest that became more famous for what happened in jail — rather than what landed him there — is finally over … and he only had to pay a small fine to make it go away for good.
Wiz pled guilty in El Paso to misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and agreed to pay a $500 fine. The rapper was arrested in May 2014 for trying to get half a gram of weed past TSA officials.
Of course, the arrest blew up on social media when Wiz took a selfie while behind bars … which led to an internal investigation. Inmates on Instagram is still frowned upon there.
