Young Jeezy has been arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, and making terrorist threats against his son. The Fulton County, GA Sheriff’s Department confirms the arrest on their website.
Jeezy turned himself into police Friday, January 3 and was released after posting $45,000 bond.
The 36-year-old rapper, born Jay Wayne Jenkins, was allegedly involved in a fight with his son in a bathroom, according to TMZ, which reports Jeezy threw his son into to a glass shower door, and punched him, after which he’s accused of dragging him into a bedroom and continuing to assault him. Court documents reportedly show that Jeezy also choked his son and said, “I will kill you.”
The son also reportedly quoted his father as saying, “I will put a bullet in your head right now. If I could get away with it, I would kill you.” The incident allegedly occurred in September 2012.
Jeezy’s attorney says, “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately. At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”
Young Jeezy has two sons, Shyheim Jenkins and Jadarius Jenkins. The identity of the son involved in this incident has not been revealed.
