Wayne's accident comes just days after he was attacked with pepper spray in Montreal, Canada.
Lil Wayne was attacked with pepper spray last night in Canada -- after some jerk snuck into his afterparty and put the excruciating substance in the air ducts. It all went down last night at a club in Montreal called La Mouche -- where Weezy washosting the afterparty for his show. We're told some jacka** snuck into the back room and unleashed the chemical into theventilation system -- and everyone had to be evacuated, including Weezy. So far, it's unclear if police are investigating -- but a rep for Lil Wayne says the rapper is "okay and gearing for his next stop in Toronto." (TMZ)
