Lil Wayne Fan Beat Over the Head with Skateboard for Taking A Picture?
Young Money CEO Lil Wayne is back in the headlines for the second time in a month after his crew allegedly attacked a fan who tried to take a picture of the rapper.
Alfredo Marino tells TMZ on May 3 he spotted Lil Wayne and his posse skateboarding. Marino says he is a HUGE fan of Wayne’s so he went up to Weezy to ask for a photo — but was shut down.
Marino retreated to his car, where he tried sneaking a pic … Marino claims Wayne walked over with his crew and began threatening him, saying, “Don’t you know all it takes is a word and these motherf**kers are going to f**k you up?”
Marino claims he was clocked from behind with a skateboard — which knocked him down and left him bleeding from the head. Marino says he suffered a concussion and vertigo.
Craig Chisvin, Marino’s lawyer, said, “My client will enforce all of his rights under the law and all individuals responsible for this outrageous incident will be blamed for the damages that my client has suffered and continues to suffer.”
Back in April, a photographer in Miami filed a report which stated that he was spat on and pushed to the ground by members of Weezy’s security after he took some photos of the rapper skateboarding outside a church (right beside a clearly visible “no skateboarding” sign). He says the group also beat his bicycle with a skateboard before he was able to flee the scene.
According to TMZ, cops are investigating this latest incident, and Wayne’s reps have yet to return any requests for comment.
