We don’t know the name of the El Paso police officer who let Wiz Khalifa use a cellphone to take a selfie while he was in police custody, but we do know that the officer won’t be facing any punishment for doing it.

Khalifa was in town performing at the Neon Desert Music Festival and was about to board a plane at the El Paso International Airport on Sunday when he was arrested for allegedly having a half-gram of marijuana. While he was in the detention cell, he asked to make a phone call to his wife, but took a selfie instead and posted it on social media.

Police say they do allow people in holding cells to use cell phones to make a phone call. The department investigated the incident and decided against any punishment for the unnamed officer.

Khalifa eventually got on a plane to do another music festival and spoke to a reporter about the selfie.

He also mocked the officer who gave him the cell phone.

Khalifa is a turd. I hate that he made our PD look silly. Hopefully, the next time something like this happens, officers will make sure that a call is being made, and a selfie isn’t being posted. Their job is hard and thankless enough without some stupid punk getting ‘street cred’ from a stupid punk prank.
