The driver, whose name is Mark Jones, is suing Wayne and claiming that the Young Money rapper threatened to “whip his ass” and kill him.
According to the lawsuit — obtained by TMZ — Mark Jones claims he was hired to drive Wayne and crew around for his 2014 summer concert tour. First stop: Buffalo.
Jones says he pulled over at around 11:30 PM for gas. He says Wayne became irate and started cursing, to the point the driver became scared and continued driving without refueling.
But Jones says Wayne kept his tirade going, threatening to pistol whip him, “whip [his] ass” and finish the job by killing him.
Jones says that at that point, the tension rose:
Jones says at that point things escalated, and Wayne came at him with a gun, cocked it at close range and demanded, “I want to get to the hotel now.”
Jones says he obliged and the 30-minute drive was in total silence.
If we’re being honest, Jones’ story is super weird. But nonetheless, he’s suing for false imprisonment, assault, and emotional distress. We will keep you updated.
