As previously reported by rolling out, rapper Young Jeezy was arrested for communicating a terrorist threat on Friday. We now know exactly what he allegedly did and who he supposedly issued the threats to.
Jeezy was arrested and booked into the Fulton County, Ga., jail for battery, false imprisonment, and threatening to kill his own son in Sept. 2012.
According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s office, Jeezy got into a fight with his son in Atlanta 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 even more.
According to the incident report, Jeezy’s son attempted to escape but the rapper’s bodyguard blocked the stairwell.
Jeezy also subsequently choked his son and said, “I will kill you, according to the criminal complaints filed against him. 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.”
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 told tmz.com: “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.”
