Rapper Lil Wayne was arrested about an hour later after police said officers saw him and another man smoking marijuana. They also found he was carrying a .40-caliber pistol.

Lil Wayne's real name is Dwayne Carter. Ja Rule's real name is Jeff Atkins. Both are best-selling hip-hop artists.

Immediate attempts to find their managers for comment were not successful.
