Atlanta rapper Jeezy is getting a rough start to his 2014 after reportedly being arrested in his hometown on a slew of serious criminal charges.
According to reports, an incident between Jeezy and his son has resulted in police getting involved.
Rapper Young Jeezy was arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats against his own son … TMZ has learned. According to the charging documents — obtained by TMZ — Jeezy 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. According to the incident report, Jeezy’s son attempted to escape but the rapper’s bodyguard blocked the stairwell. (TMZ)
Despite the arrest taking place Tuesday (January 7), Jeezy’s crime reportedly went down back in 2012.
The docs go on — claiming Jeezy subsequently 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. We’ve learned Jeezy turned himself in to authorities Friday after a grand jury warrant for each charge was issued. He bonded out soon after for $45,000. Jeezy’s attorney tells TMZ, “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.” (TMZ)

Recently, Jeezy raised eyebrows after joining rap mogul Jay Z’s growing Roc Nation team.
It appears that Jeezy has aligned himself and possibly his CTE imprint with Roc Nation. Jeezy took a picture with Jay Z, with the caption reading: “It’s Official Now. CTE x Roc Nation x It’s Tha World.” As of now, details of the deal have not been revealed. In the past week, Jeezy has expressed frustration with his own label situation at Def Jam Records. He has threatened to provide fans with “an early X-Mas present” if the situation doesn’t change. Meanwhile, Jeezy’s CTE World label has previously been under Atlantic Records. (Complex)
