CASH MONEY RECORDS CEO, BIRDMAN & HIS 18-YEAR-OLD WIFE AMONG 16 ARRESTED, CHARGED AND JAILED ON DRUG CHARGES.

In Kingsport, Tennessee, Cash Money Records CEO/rapper Bryan "Birdman" Williams, 38, and his brother, 43-year-old, Ronald "Slim" Williams were arrested and charged with possession of more than a 1/2 ounce of marijuana during a traffic stop on Tuesday. Also arrested along with the Williams' brothers was "Birdman's" 18-year-old wife Brittany Williams. Road manager Shahid Muhammad, 40, Cash Money Records promoter Casey Collins, 42, and music promoter Ovide Antoine, 32, of Miami, Fla. were also arrested. All 16 remained jailed late Tuesday night. It was not known if any of them had an attorney.

The arrests came on Interstate 81 after the group's rented RV, which had Florida tags, was pulled over for an improper lane change. Police said they could smell marijuana from inside the RV and located about a pound of the weed in a trashcan in the RV's kitchenette after obtaining consent to search the vehicle. Police told the Kingsport Times-News that an assault rifle, a handgun and a clip for a .45 caliber handgun were also seized Tuesday evening. No one has been charged with weapons violations as of press time, although the ATF is investigating the source of a 2-23 carbine assault rifle, which is often used by military and law enforcement officials.

Group members said they were headed from New Orleans to New York for an appearance on BET.

The Williams brothers started Cash Money Records in 1992 and through the years, the label has released hit recordings by The Hot Boys, Juvenile, Turk, Lil’ Wayne, B.G. and Bryan "Baby" Williams.
