Lil Wayne Held Tour Bus Driver at Gunpoint, Threatened to Kill Him: lawsuit

Mark Jones claims he was driving Lil Wayne and his entourage after a concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in New York on Aug. 8, 2014, when the rapper flipped, pointed a loaded gun at him and threatened to kill him. According to the civil lawsuit, which was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Mark says he told the Lil Wayne he needed to refuel, but as he pulled into the station the 32-year-old “Cash Money Records” artist exploded “yelling and cursing” at the driver and threatened to pistol whip, kill and “have his security guards beat” him if he didn’t return to the highway. Mark claims in the lawsuit the rapper ordered the other passengers into the back of the bus. He then says Lil Wayne produced a gun, cocked it and “at close range to [Jones], pointed it directly at [Jones] and said ‘I want to go to the hotel now.'” For 30 minutes, the lawsuit claims, Mark was forced to drive until they arrived at the hotel, where Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant -- who was informed of the incident by one of the other passengers -- was waiting. According to his lawsuit, Mark says she quit immediately after the incident, but he doesn't say whether he reported the incident to police. He's now suing unspecified damages over his “confinement, emotional distress and loss of personal dignity.”
