Lil Wayne NOT Heading to Jail Today: Courthouse Fire Postpones Rapper's Sentencing

NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Gun enthusiast Lil Wayne was set to be sentenced today at a Manhattan courthouse. That didn't happen. Busted in 2007 on a weapons charge, rounds of delays - the last delay was due to, yes, seriously, dental work - had held up Wayne's incarceration. But Wayne was finally expected to be sentenced and start serving a one-year jail term today.

And then there was a fire. A fire.

A fire in the basement forced the shutdown of Manhattan's main criminal courthouse, and granted Weezy yet another delay.

There is no word as to when Lil Wayne will actually be sentenced, but whatever future reports claim should be met with skepticism and eye-rolling.
