Lil Wayne's backup dancers have been making all the wrong moves. Jennifer Slaughter and Della Hamby, who have been supporting the rap superstar on his I Am Music II tour, were arrested in Connecticut recently for assaulting a waitress. The incident took place at P.F. Chang's in West Hartford.

According to, Slaughter and Hamby reportedly got into an argument with the waitress over splitting their check. The two young women managed to leave the restaurant peacefully, but when they returned to collect a forgotten cellphone, tensions reignited and led to fisticuffs.

During the scuffle, one woman reportedly pulled the waitress’ hair, while the other pushed her to the ground. Once down, Slaughter and Hamby continued to beat her up.

The two dancers have been charged with third-degree assault and second-degree breach of the peace. Wayne's tour includes a concert in Connecticut tonight (July 13), but it's not clear if Slaughter and Hamby will perform.
