Wiz Khalifa Ticketed For Public Urination
Well, it looks like we now know where Wiz Khalifa got his name. The 28-year-old rapper was ticketed by police in Pittsburgh early Saturday morning after he was caught — wait for it — whizzing in public.
Wiz, whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, was in town to perform at the University of Pittsburgh's Midnight Madness event when he decided the street was the best spot to take a pee at around 2:30 AM.
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police tells Us Weekly in a statement, "Rapper Wiz Khalifa was cited for public urination about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday behind a bar called The Flats on Pittsburgh's South Side."
Wiz has plenty of roots in the Pennsylvania city. He graduated from Taylor Allderice High School in the city, and one of his biggest hits was his ode to the Pittsburgh Steelers, "Black and Yellow". At least we thought the song was about the Steelers, maybe the "yellow" in the song actually refers to... something else.
Peeing in public isn't a serious offense, but it is a humorous one. Probably the worst thing about the incident for Wiz is the amount of jokes he's going to have to endure now because, come on, you can't call yourself "Wiz" and then just go around peeing wherever you want.
