Two security guards face charges of impersonating police officers after they escorted rapper Lil Wayne to an Indiana nightclub.

WISH-TV reports that 43-year-old Ronald Andre Harrod and 23-year-old Larry Lee Richardson of Indianapolis wore police-type uniforms and gun belts as they escorted Lil Wayne to a Bloomington nightclub Wednesday.

Police say Richardson led a caravan of tour buses in a car that had flashing red and blue lights and sirens blaring. Harrod was behind the caravan in another car that also had red and blue flashing lights.

Bloomington Police Department Capt. Joe Qualters says the men said they had permission and credentials to drive with lights and sirens.

Lil Wayne was convicted on a gun charge last year and spent eight months in a New York City jail.
