Wiz Khalifa thumbed his nose at authorities again Wednesday, and this time it earned him an arrest warrant.

The 26-year-old rapper, who posted a jailhouse selfie after his arrest in May, failed to appear in a Texas court on Wednesday for his arraignment on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges, Billboard reports.

According to online court records, El Paso County Court-at-Law Judge Ricardo Herrara issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz.

Khalifa was arrested May 25 when El Paso International Airport security officers discovered he was carrying a small canister of marijuana. He posted $300 bail -- but not before posting the selfie from his jail cell.
