Lil Wayne charged at a referee during a charity basketball game in St. Louis on Sunday. The rapper angrily attempted to confront the official, leading both benches to clear during the incident. Ironically, the game was taking place to promote non-violence. Watch the video below.

The rapper was on hand for the LooseCannon Celebrity Basketball Game at the Chaifetz Arena to raise money for Better Family Life’s Put Down The Pistol initiative when a fight broke out during the event. According to TMZ, Wayne reportedly first spit at the referee after getting angry with him for allegedly blowing calls. The rapper can be seen in the video chasing after the official, who takes refuge in the stands. Police were reportedly called to the scene to break up the fight, but despite the intense skirmish, no arrests were made.

This wasn’t the first time Wayne has been involved in an altercation during a celebrity sports game. As Gossip Cop previously reported, the rapper got into a shoving match with a cameraman following a celebrity flag football event for the Super Bowl in 2013.
