Wiz Khalifa's selfie photo leads to a police investigation.
El Paso, Texas law enforcement officials have launched an investigation in the wake of Wiz Khalifa’s recent selfie, which was reportedly taken while the rapper was locked up.
Khalifa was arrested Sunday (May 25) at an airport checkpoint. He was reportedly attempting to carry weed on the plane.
The rapper took the image and posted it on social media soon after.
The investigation was reportedly launched, according to TMZ, because people are not allowed to take photographs in jail with their phones. The officials are attempting to see if he was left without supervision for the selfie or if an employee helped facilitate the phone usage.
