Clayton police told 5 On Your Side they were called to the hotel just before 10 a.m. for a disturbance.

The hotel said there were complaints of a marijuana smell coming from his hotel room that morning and they asked him to open his balcony doors to air it out.

He and his entourage of seven went downstairs and became verbally abusive and threatening, according to police.

Officers were able to get control of the situation and calmed everyone down. There were no injuries or physical altercations with police.

Police said Lil Wayne and his group were not kicked out of the hotel but left on their own.

Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre said that although Lil Wayne will not be performing, Blink-182 will still go on as planned. 

Neck Deep will be opening the show at 7:30 p.m.
