Lil Wayne

Investigated for Assault ...

AGAIN!!!

For the second time in a month, Lil Wayne and his entourage are under investigation for assault ... and once again the alleged victim caught a beatdown for daring to take a photo of Weezy. 

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.

Marino's lawyer, Craig Chisvin, tells TMZ, "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."

In April, a photog in Miami filed a police report claiming he was attacked by Lil Wayne's crew for the same offense. 

Cops are investigating. Calls to Lil Wayne's rep were not returned.

Oh Harvey you tool...let's analyze this post and see what's wrong with it. Headline: Lil wayne investigated. Then you read further and its really his crew correct? Then according to you, the photog goes back in his car, and somehow while in his car he is clocked from behind the head? Well on behalf of their team, THANK YOU for just giving NO validity to these charges. How in the world is someone clocked in the back of the head if they are in the car? And how would he fall down if hes already in the car? This is just another case of irresponsible hack journalism. At what point are you gonna wake up and realize your a disgusting human being who spent his life posting pictures of dead celebs in caskets and defending photogs who ATTACK celebs aka will smith, then blame the celeb like they should all be making out with strangers and thats all acceptable? YOUR S***. Get a real job

I'm sure Jesse Jackson, and Al will be there to play the race card for him. Lil Wayne even looks like he could be Obama's son.

All I gotta say is, It's not eazy being a rapper, Or a DJ, Or just a star in general. You deal wit all kinds of fanz. You got the kool, respectable fanz, And then, You got fanz that are, "Borderline crazy", Ask Beyonce and some of the members from The Beatles, They'll tell ya.

In defense of Wayne, the jerk DID try to take his picture! If I were famous, anyone trying to take my picture would be slammed to the pavement too. People need to grow up and realize that celebrities should only have their pictures taken by professional photographers under controlled cir***stances. Civilians trying to look into the eyes of celebrities, much less take their picture with crappy little cell phone cameras deserve everything they get.

He just won a 2012 Billboard Music Award. I'm sure he's sick of paparazzi but escort the guy away if you don't want your picture taken but don't hit him! Damn.
