Monday, Sep 24, 2012 1:00PM
The Los Angeles Police Department is reportedly on the prowl to snag rapper Wiz Khalifa up for questioning over his alleged involvement in a hit-and-run accident last week.
Details of what allegedly went down surfaced online Monday (September 24) morning.
The LAPD wants to have a chit chat with Wiz Khalifa ... because a woman told cops the rapper smashed into her car and then fled. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the lady filed a hit-and-run report following the crash last Wednesday. Cops are investigating to figure out wassup. We're told the alleged victim had been working on a music video shoot with Wiz and she claims the alleged accident occurred around midnight when everyone was leaving the set. Cops are attempting to reach Wiz. Calls to Wiz's rep have not been returned. (TMZ)
No stranger to the law, Khalifa found himself in handcuffs last spring on a drug-related charge.
In May, he was arrested in North Carolina after the officers pulled over his tour bus following a concert in Winston-Salem and discovered 11.39 grams of marijuana after searching the vehicle. Ten days earlier, he was cautioned for the same offence after he was discovered in a hotel room smoking a joint following complaints from other guests. Although Wiz - real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz - tried to get rid of the evidence by throwing the drug-laced cigarette out of his window before letting the police in the officers recovered the joint and the musician then confessed to having another 3.7g of marijuana in his pocket.

Known for his love of vehicles, Wiz recently revealed his first big purchase came in the form of a pricey whip.
What was the first thing you bought when you got rich? My 2011 [Dodge] Challenger. The black and yellow car from the video. How much did it cost? I think it was $40,000. I didn't buy it straight out because I wanted to build my credit up. I've got a couple cars that I bought straight out, but I didn't buy this one straight out. I'm actually still making payments on it even though I could buy it. It's good to have bills. Keeps your credit looking good. When did you buy it? This was like 2010. Where did you buy it? Back in Pittsburgh. (Complex)
