Lil Wayne goes solo in NY jail solitary punishment
NEW YORK (AP) -- Lil Wayne can expect to spend the rest of his time behind bars going solo.
Correction Department spokesman Stephen Morello says Lil Wayne was moved into what New York City jail officials call "punitive segregation" on Monday. It's his punishment for stashing a charger and headphones for a digital music player in a potato chip bag in his cell.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper previously was allowed to spend most of the day mingling with other inmates at the Rikers Island jail complex. Now, he will usually be confined to his new cell 23 hours a day and kept apart from other inmates during recreation time.
The rapper, born Dwayne Carter, has been in jail since March and is expected to be released Nov. 4. He pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. His lawyer had no immediate comment Monday.
