Birdman And Young Thug Reportedly Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Case

I know y’all remember Lil Wayne’s tour bus shooting?

Since it happened back in 2015 in Atlanta, Ga, there have been many developments in the case. The most recent being #Birdman and Young Thug’s plea for a gag order against Alvin Lewis.

Let’s play catch up. Alvin Lewis, the driver of the bus, sued Birdman, Thug, and PeeWee Roscoe. PeeWee was hit with ten years behind bars as well as ten years probation following his guilty plea to six of the 27 counts he faced in connection to the shooting. He later appealed the sentence. Lil’ Wayne was not injured during the incident.
Now, Birdman and Young Thug have asked the judge to issue a gag order against Alvin — preventing him and his lawyer from discussing the case with anyone — including the media.
Alvin initially sued Young Thug, Birdman, and PeeWee Roscoe, Young Thug’s manager for civil assault and battery, violation of state and federal racketeering offenses, causing emotional distress and more.

Lewis claimed that Wayne’s tour bus was shot up after the rapper’s crew and PeeWee Roscoe’s clique allegedly had an altercation after a concert. Although Roscow was sentenced to 10 years behind bars, Lewis alleged that Roscoe made a few calls to both Thug and Birdman before and after the shooting.

“He has emotional injuries including post-traumatic stress and is not doing well,” his lawyer Jeffrey Gewirtz said back in 2016. He was requesting to be compensated for his “pain, anguish, suffering, discomfort, medical expenses” and lost wages.

Both Birdman and Young Thug went under criminal investigation for the case — ironically the same day Weezy’s Carter V album was finally released.

According to The BlastBirdman and Young Thug are asking a judge to issue a gag order in the lawsuit over Lil Wayne‘s tour bus shooting. They’re also reportedly pleading for the court to silence the man who is suing them.

Documents obtained by the news site says Birdman and Thug want an emergency motion to end their depositions and an order which prohibits the guy who is suing them, along with his lawyer, from speaking about the case to anyone, especially the media.

It was said that the rappers filed the docs just days after the entire case was put on hold by a Georgia judge due to the conduct of the lawyer involved in the case.

As we previously, Birdman and Thug were being investigated after a recorded phone call was released where both of the rappers can be heard talking to the alleged shooter Roscoe (aka Jimmy Winfrey) before and after the shooting. The Cobb County District Attorney recently announced they were deciding on whether to file charges against Thug and Birdman relating to the shooting. No decision has been made as of yet.

The bus driver, Alvin Lewis, also alleged those same details in his lawsuit. He called the shooting “gang-related.”

Lewis sued seeking unspecified damages. It is not clear when the case will resume, but the judge is allowing for Roscoe to be deposed from jail but everything else will be halted until further notice from the court, The Blastreports.
