Lil Wayne has a posse that can’t be beat! Literally..
Two of Wayne’s background dancers are in the news today after they were arrested and charged with assaulting a waitress during a dispute over splitting a check at a P.F. Chang’s restaurant.
[Sidebar: Those dang lettuce wraps would be heaven right about now… but I digress!]
I don’t know what it is about Chinese food and background dancing, but violence is NEVER the answer.
Details about the altercation & mugshots below:
According to the Hartford Courant, a waitress at P.F. Chang’s said that she told Slaughter, Hamby and another woman (who was not charged), that they should have asked to have the check split at the beginning of their meal, not at the end.
That’s when all hell broke loose…
The women paid and left, but they later returned to retrieve a cell phone that one had left behind. They swore at the waitress and threatened her. Then, witnesses told police, one pulled the waitress’s hair while the other punched her. They threw the waitress to the floor and continued punching her, police said.
The third patron did not participate in the beating, police said. The waitress sustained minor injuries. A worker at the restaurant said Monday that she was OK.
Police found the suspects across New Britain Avenue from the mall, in front of the Old Navy store.
A spokeswoman for P.F. Chang’s said she could not comment on the incident because “this is an active investigation.” West Hartford police said Monday their investigation into the incident was closed with the arrests of Slaughter and Hamby.
The women were in town for rehearsals and were scheduled to dance on stage with Lil Wayne during his performance Wednesday night at the Comcast Theatre in Connecticut.
Slaughter and Hamby are reportedly contracted performers and not employees of the tour or Lil Wayne’s record label.
Six to eight dancers usually are part of the show. They often work for professional troupes and audition to be part of Lil Wayne’s tour.
I feel for Weezy… now his name has to be associated with this hoodrat mess and he didn’t even get the pleasure of eating the Kung Pao Chicken they were fighting over!
Life’s a bitch!
