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!

Birdman & Young Thug Could Be Charged With Trying To Kill Lil Wayne After New Evidence Surfaces In The Case

3 years ago, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe was found guilty of shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus in Atlanta, Georgia and was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation).

“Time for you to come out here and get this money nephew. You did everything you could do boss… it’s a eye-opener bruh, ya heard me. Strictly business, man.”

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!

Miami Police Department Respond To Hoax Shooting At Lil Wayne's Mansion For The Second Time In Just Over A Year

A few days ago on September 2nd, the Miami police officers were called to Lil Wayne‘s crib on La Gorce Island in Florida after they received a 911 call reporting there was a shooting inside the house.

Of course when the police turned up, they found no victims and it ended up being another hoax 911 call, which is the same thing that happened to Wayne last year in March.

After the incident, Tunechi took to Twitter to thank the authorities for always being alert. The MPD (Miami Police Department) responded to Tune on their own Twitter page by saying they are glad he is okay and thanked him for the support.

You can check out a news clip of the incident after the jump below that also shows Weezy arriving to his mansion in his Bugatti!
