Young Jeezy - Young Jeezy Arrested In Atlanta

Rapper Young Jeezy has been arrested in Atlanta, Georgia, according to a U.S. report.

The Put On hitmaker was detained on Friday (03Jan14) for battery, false imprisonment and making terroristic threats against his son, according to court documents.

Young Jeezy, real name Jay Jenkins, stands accused of throwing his son through a glass shower door, dragging him to the floor and punching him in the face during an altercation in September, 2012.

He is also accused of choking his son and threatening to "kill him."

On Friday, the rapper turned himself in to police authorities and was subsequently released on $45,000 (£30,000) bond.

His lawyer tells, "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 arrest is the latest legal woe for Jenkins - he is also facing a copyright infringement lawsuit from soul veteran Leroy Hutson over samples used in his song Time.
