Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Both Birdman and Young Thug have asked a Cobb County State Court judge to issue a gag order in the lawsuit involving them with the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting in Atlanta back in 2015.

For those who are unaware, a gag order is a legal order by courts or governments that keeps information from being made public. Baby and Thugger want to silence Alvin Lewis, and stop him and his lawyer from speaking to the media about the case.

Lewis was the driver of Tunechi‘s tour bus on the night when it was shot up by Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe. He is currently suing Stunna, Thug, Peewee, Cash Money Records, and Young Money over the incident, and believes that the shooting was “gang-related.”

According to The Blast, the judge has yet to rule and the case is currently on hold. Right now, Roscoe is behind bars after being sentenced to 10 years in jail, but the lawsuit is about to reopened after new evidenced surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Weezy!

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Back in 2015, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe pleaded guilty to the shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus outside of Compound nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia on April 25th.

Peewee was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation), but according to a new report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, he has had his sentence overturned.

The good friend of T.I., Birdman and Young Thug appealed his sentence in February this year by claiming the Cobb County judge, Mary Staley Clark, “pushed” him into accepting a plea deal that he had previously declined by allegedly threatening him with a harder sentence.

Winfrey will now remain locked up behind bars while his case goes back to the Cobb County State Court to start over again!

Lil Wayne Sued For Hate Crime Against A White Nightclub Bouncer, Wants Lawsuit Dismissed

Lil Wayne Sued For Hate Crime Against A White Nightclub Bouncer, Wants Lawsuit Dismissed

It looks like Lil Wayne has another legal issue he has to deal with as The Blast, who first broke the news Wayne had reached a settlement with his record labels, have obtained new court documents that show he is being accused of committing a hate crime.

Last year in June, a white security guard named Andrew Nunemacher was working on the door of Hyde nightclub, which is where Tunechi was hosting his BET Awards after-party, and accused Tune of punching him and throwing a glass of alcohol into his face while saying: “fuck you white boy”.

Andrew is in court arguing that these words prove the assault was a hate crime and it was driven by his “Caucasian ancestry and descent.” However, Weezy is denying that he committed a hate crime and claims he never even assaulted the nightclub bouncer.

Mr. Carter says he acted in a “careful” and “reasonable” manner, as well as that Nunemacher knew all about the potential risks of his job when he took it. He is also arguing that any of the security guard’s alleged injuries are because of self-defense and are due to his own carelessness.

The nightclub bouncer is suing Lil Wayne, Young Money, and the nightclub for assault, as well as wants a $25,000 civil penalty added for Wayne‘s alleged hate crime. Even though the court case is still on going, Weezy wants it dismissed completely!
