Skateboard Thugging? Lil Wayne Sued By Fan Who Was Attacked With A Skateboard
So, a stern “no” and maybe even a push off is no longer an option for some security guards, huh?
TMZ has learned that a lawsuit has been filed against Lil Wayne and his record company after a security allegedly attacked a fan trying to take a picture of the rapper.
In the lawsuit filed by attorney Craig Chisvin, his client Alfredo Marino ran into Lil Wayne and his crew on the streets of Los Angeles in May 2012. He tried to take a picture of him but when a person with Wayne – presumably a security guard – saw what he was doing, he grabbed a skateboard and hit Marino in the back of the head with it.
It is pretty unclear where the skateboard came from, if it was owned by Wayne or the victim.
Marino claims he sustained a severe head injury from the attack. He is suing Wayne and the record label because he believes they were responsible for enabling him.
It’s also clear that if he wins this case, he’s likely to get more money out of Wayne and/or his record label versus the person who committed the alleged act.
No word from Wayne, the label or the alleged attacker. Marino is seeking unspecified damages.
Attacked with a skateboard…really? If this is true, that is really going a bit far. Perhaps the victim got too close for comfort and he needed to be removed from the situation but aren’t there ways to use a bit more force without possibly doing harm?
Oh Weezy, you have problems even when you had nothing to do with it.
