Young Jeezy has been arrested and charged with battery, false imprisonment, and making terrorist-like threats against his own son.
According to TMZ, the rapper – real name Jay Wayne Jenkins – in September 2012 got into a fight with his son in the bathroom, where he allegedly punched him in the face, threw him on the glass shower door, and blocking the stairwell with bodyguards when his son tried to escape.
According to the incident report, Jeezy also choked the unidentified son and told him, ‘I will kill you … I will put a bullet in your head right now … If I could get away with it, I would kill you.’
Young Jeezy turned himself in on Friday and after getting booked, he checked out after posting $45,000 bail.
‘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,’ his rep said.
