Jury Clears Waka Flocka Flame Of Drug Charges

Hip hop star Waka Flocka Flame has been cleared of drug related charges after a jury in Georgia ruled there was not sufficient evidence to convict the rapper.
The hitmaker, real name Juaquin Malphurs, surrendered to Atlanta-area police in January after an arrest warrant was issued for the star's arrest stemming from a raid on his Georgia home last year.
He was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and was subsequently bailed after posting $40,000.
In a Henry County Court earlier this week, a grand jury decided to clear Malphurs of possession of a controlled substance and possession of weed measuring less than an ounce. Three other charges stemming from the raid on his home were dropped before the case went to court, according to TMZ.com.
