The rapper, who was in New Orleans for the Super Bowl, was participating in the Celebrity Beach Bowl alongside the likes of Snoop Dogg and actor Chace Crawford when he allegedly lost his cool with a snapper.
In video footage obtained by XXLMag.com, a furious Lil Wayne shouts and points at the man before he was restrained by retired American footballer Warren Moon.
And the 30 year old, who has previously served eight months behind bars on weapons possession charges, admits he's glad he walked away.
Talking about the incident to E! News, he said, "One of these camera dudes just pushed me just now, and I don't like to be touched by people I don't tell them to touch me. I'm gonna get out of the building, because if I touch somebody, I go to jail, because they're not the same color I am."
