News: Young Thug & Birdman Named In Indictment In Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Shooting

UPDATE: Young Thug is now being charged with drugs and weapons violations following his arrest yesterday. The charges came after a search of Thug’s home in Atlanta. Police officials have yet to announce exactly what was found at Thug’s residence during the search. Thug is currently being held at the DeKalb County jail where he is awaiting his initial court appearance and bond hearing.


Remember when Lil Wayne’s tour bus got shot up after a show in ATL? Well it seems now that Young Thug and Birdman may have been apart of it. Today WSBTV reporter Mike Petchenik broke news that Thug and Birdman have been named in a indictment that alleges their involvement in a conspiracy with suspect Jimmy Winfrey (Peewee Roscoe) in a plot to take down Lil Wayne…

Winfrey was arrested back in May for his involvement. Neither Birdman nor Young Thug are being charged in the indictment but yet are just named as having connections with Winfrey. Prosecutors are also trying to use Thug’s “Halftime” video as evidence since it has Winfrey holding an assault rifle during the song that makes mention of Lil Wayne’s name.

Keep checking back here to get updates on the situation as they arise.
