Lil Wayne, Assault: Photographer Says He Was Hit With Skateboard After Trying for Picture

Randy Belice, National Basketball Association

Whether recent stories are true, it’s probably best not to try to photograph Lil Wayne while he’s skating. Last month, the rapper was accused of assaulting a snapper outside a Miami church, and on May 3, TMZ reports, Weezy allegedly struck again, as he or someone in his entourage hit a photographer with a skateboard. Police are said to be investigating the incident, and no arrests have been made.

The supposed victim, Alfredo Marino, tells TMZ that he approached Wayne and his crew and asked them for a photo. They said no, and when he went back to his car to snap one on the sly, he claims, the MC followed him and began making threats.

“Don’t you know all it takes is a word and these motherf—ers are going to f— you up?” Wayne said, according to Marino.

Next, Marino says, he was whacked from behind with a skateboard — an attack that knocked him to the ground and bloodied his head.

“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,” said Marino’s lawyer, Craig Chisvin.

The rapper’s reps have yet to respond.
