Lil Wayne Allegedly Punched a Nightclub Bouncer after the BET Awards
Lil Wayne reportedly got into a bit of a scuffle on Sunday, June 26, when he allegedly punched a nightclub doorman following the BET Awards in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Weezy and 2 Chainz were set to host an after-party at Hyde nightclub on Sunset, but the NOLA rapper ran into issues at the door which halted his entourage entry into the event. That’s when Wayne allegedly laid a punch to the bouncers face.
Though the injuries were reportedly “minor,” the bouncer went to a hospital for treatment before calling police. Police are investigating the incident, and now Lil Wayne faces charges for misdemeanor battery.
TMZ also claims that someone close Weezy told them the rapper denies punching the man, and that there was a brief altercation when the bouncer “mistakenly grabbed Wayne by the arm,” and later apologized.
