Rapper Jeezy, formerly known as Young Jeezy, was arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment and making threats to kill his own son stemming from September 2012.
According to TMZ:
According to the charging documents — obtained by TMZ — Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, got into a fight with his son in a bathroom and he threw his son into the glass shower door, causing the son to hit his head. Then Jeezy allegedly punched him in the face, dragged him into the bedroom, threw him on the bed and pummeled him.
The docs go on — claiming Jeezy choked his son and said, “I will kill you.” According to police docs, Jeezy’s son claims his dad said, “I will put a bullet in your head right now,” adding, “If I could get away with it, I would kill you.” The incident allegedly occurred in Sept., 2012.
Young Jeezy is most definitely not the father figure you’ll want around your son, and he had the nerve to put a statement through his high paid attorney saying:
“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.”
The Atlanta-rapper reportedly turned himself in to authorities on Friday after a grand jury warrant for each charge was issued. He’s out on a $45,000 bond.
