(AllHipHop News) The news that Birdman may have thrown a drink at Lil Wayne at a nightclub seemed drastic, but a new report suggests the Cash Money Records co-founder may have gone to more extreme measures against his former protegé.

According to Atlanta’s WSBTV, court documents claim Birdman conspired with Young Thug to try and kill Wayne. A Cobb County indictment filed in June states Thug and Birdman were involved in a RICO conspiracy to have Wayne’s tour bus shot.
The incident allegedly stems from Wayne’s attempt to leave Cash Money for lack of payments. Thug apparently threatened Wayne, and the “Stoner” rhymer’s road manager Jimmy Winfrey (aka PeeWee Roscoe) carried out that threat. According to the indictment, Winfrey was driving the vehicle involved in the shooting.
“After Atlanta Police discontinued their escort, [Winfrey] and fellow Blood Gang members entered Interstate 285 from Atlanta Road in Cobb County in pursuit of the buses occupied by [Lil Wayne’s] group,” the indictment reads. “[That’s when] the white sports car pulled beside the buses, shots were then fired into the buses from the sports car with a .40 caliber handgun and a 9mm handgun.”
Winfrey was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and acts, criminal damage, possession of a firearm by a felon, criminal gang activity, reckless conduct and discharging a weapon near the street. His next court date is scheduled for Friday, July 17.
Thug and Birdman have not been charged in the tour bus shooting.
