No Bird For BirdmanOr: The Hilarity Of Internet News So, Lil Wayne's sugadaddy Baby, AKA The Birdman got arrested the other day. Yesterday's reporting was pretty hardcore. Apparently, the Number One Sunna was caught with a load of weed, a bunch of guns, and "his 18 year old wife". "Cash Money Records CEO and president Baby "Birdman" Williams and brother Ronald "Slim" Williams were among 16 people arrested yesterday in Kingsport, Tennessee for possession of over a half-ounce of marijuana each," wrote HopHopDX. "The Williams brothers and the entourage were traveling in an RV on Interstate 81, when they were stopped by police troopers for allegedly forcing an 18-wheeler truck into the emergency lane for a yield.
The 38-year-old Birdman, who was accompanied by his 18 year-old wife Brittany, was held responsible for the marijuana that was discovered in the kitchenette garbage can. In addition to the Williams brothers, at least three other Cash Money Records executives were arrested in the incident... The Bureau Of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is also involved due to a .45 pistol found on the scene too."
Oh no! The internets went nuts with chat about that 18 year old. Then Baby got out of jail and someone (MTV) bothered to talk to him. Apparently the weed was a “misdemeanor amount”, and the guns were registered to his security detail, and have already been returned by authorities.
“The guns we had were good,” said Baby. “I do carry a gun and I am licensed. Tennessee is one of the states I can tote in. We know the guidelines. They make you aware of everything in [marksmanship] class.”
And the girl?
“I’m not married,” said the outraged Birdman. “Never! Been! Married! Plus, that girl was 18! I don’t get down like that! Plus, if I was married, why would I keep it a secret?”
Apparently the girl was a friend of one of the other arrestees.
Baby and his brother Slim were charged with possession of more than a half of an ounce of marijuana and released after posting $1500 bonds this morning. They're due back in court on March 18th.
