Lil Wayne's time in jail has been nothing if not eventful, and now, as his sentence winds down, a second corrections officer is in trouble for visiting him. Captain Raphael Collazzo, a 20-year veteran, was spotted on security video spending 45 minutes in the rapper's isolation cell, the New York Daily News reports. Collazzo couldn't explain what he was doing there, and was suspended without pay for 10 days.

Shortly after Wayne first arrived in prison, another officer was fired after visiting him without reason. Click here to see how the rapper spent his days in jail before getting sent to solitary. (Read more Lil Wayne stories.)
