Indictment links rappers Young Thug and Birdman to shots fired into Lil Wayne’s buses.

E! Atlanta rapper Young Thug’s rap sheet grew longer Thursday when another police agency added additional charges, including felony weapon and drug violations.ATLANTA — A man charged with shooting into Lil Wayne’s tour buses on a Georgia highway called cellphones linked to rappers Young Thug and Birdman before and after the gunfire, according to an indictment in the case. News has obtained a legal indictment from June 25 against Jimmy Winfrey, who was charged for the shooting of Lil Wayne’s tour buses that occurred in April.

The 23-year-old, whose real name is Jeffrey Lamar Williams, was arrested Wednesday for allegedly threatening to shoot a Perimeter Mall security guard in the face, according to the U.S. The court documents, filed in Cob County, Ga., details 30 counts against Winfrey—including aggravated assault, criminal damage to property, possession of a firearm and violation of both the RICO Act and Street Gang Terrorism Prevention Act.

The indictment says Winfrey called “cellphones connected to Jeffrey Williams” — also known as Young Thug — before the shooting occurred and then afterward called a cellphone “owned by Bryan Williams.” Jeffrey and Bryan Williams were not charged in relation to the bus shootings. The indictment opens by giving substantial background, first identifying Winfrey, Young Thug, Birdman and Lil Wayne as Blood gang members, and claiming that the defendant (Winfrey) is a high-ranking member in the Young Slime Life subset of the Bloods. It goes on to say that on the night of the incident, Young Thug was booed offstage at a New Orleans gig to the crowd chanting Lil Wayne’s name, with Wayne performing the same night in Atlanta. Williams, who was born in Sylvan Hills in southwest Atlanta, is best known for his recent single “Stoner” and is a member of Gucci Mane’s Atlanta-based record label. It says police “fearing gang violence” escorted Lil Wayne from the club and patrol cars stayed with his buses until they left the Atlanta city limits.

Jeffrey Williams’ attorney, Brian Steel, declined to comment Thursday on his arrest in DeKalb County as well as the allegations in the bus shooting indictment.
