Prison Captain Suspended for Hanging in Lil Wayne’s Cell
Lil Wayne‘s prison sentence is causing some problems for New York’s Corrections Department. The most recent controversy surrounding Weezy involves a veteran Captain who reportedly paid the rapper an unauthorized 45-minute visit.
Capt. Raphael Collazzo was suspended without pay for 10 days after security cameras caught him fraternizing with Wayne, who is currently in “isolation lockup.” According to Patrick Ferraiuolo, president of the Correction Captains’ Association, Inc., Collazzo claims he’s done nothing wrong, but the Corrections Department seemed to disagree.
This isn’t the first time a Corrections employee has been penalized for their association with the rap star. Officer Amelia Negron was let go after allegedly popping up around Wayne’s cell. Officials claim Negron’s dismissal was unrelated to the Grammy Award winning rapper, but Negron accused the department of forcing her into admitting that she was trying to get close to the Wayne. Capt. Latanya Brown was also questioned for hanging around Weezy’s cell too much.
Either way, Weezy won’t be able to cause any more trouble once he wraps up his sentence early next month.
