The attorney for rapper Wiz Khalifa told ABC-7 that the bench warrant for Wiz has been recalled.
Attorney Thomas D. Carter IV said it was recalled Thursday morning because Wiz never received notice to appear in court.
Wiz, whose real name is Cameran Thomaz, was arrested at the El Paso International Airport on May 25 and charged with possession of 0.5 grams of marijuana.
Carter said that reports that Wiz had an attorney in the case prior to Thursday are erroneous and that Carter became Wiz's attorney of record in the case this morning.
Carter said he wants the public to know that Wiz missed the court date because he was not given notice to appear and that he was not thumbing is nose at the court.
Carter said Wiz intends to appear in court in El Paso when his presence is required in the case.
Carter also said that Wiz is innocent until proven guilty and that they still have an investigation to do into the case.
Khalifa discussed his El Paso arrest on a marijuana possession charge in a video posted on YouTube.
Khalifa, interviewed at SoundSet Music Festival in late May in Minnesota, was asked if the officers and guards were cool with him taking the selfie in the El Paso International Airport holding cell.
"Nah, he was pissed," Khalifa says in the video. "Shout out to Officer (name edited out in video). I shouldn’t even said his name neither cause he don’t want no one to know who he is. I just double (screwed) you now. I was like, ‘yo, can I get that phone, man? I really need to call my wife. I gotta tell her what happened.' And then he gave me the phone and I was like ‘selfie!’

"Mr. (Cameron) Thomaz was placed under arrest after he was found to have a small amount of marijuana as he passed through a TSA Checkpoint at the airport. While in custody he asked to use his phone to call a relative. The handling officer allowed Mr. Thomaz to make that call and during that time he used that opportunity to take the pictures. To be clear, given the circumstances of this case it would not be uncommon to honor such a request," El Paso Police said in a statement to ABC-7 in May.
Khalifa performed at El Paso's Neon Desert Music Festival on May 24 and was arrested early the next morning at the El Paso airport for being in possession of 0.5 grams of marijuana.
The rapper's new project is titled "28 Grams" was released after his arrest.
