Rapper popped for battery, false imprisonment and making terrorist threats.
Jeezy, née Jay Wayne Jenkins, turned himself in to police Friday (Jan. 3) after a warrant was issued for the impending charges stemming from Sept. 2012, when he reportedly attacked his son in a bathroom. The scuffle allegedly included Jeezy throwing his son up against a shower door, punching him in the face, then dragging him into a bedroom to punch him more.
According to law enforcement documents, the 36-year-old also threatened to kill his son, saying, "I will put a bullet in your head right now," and, "If I could get away with it, I would kill you."
The minor's name has not been publicized, but he is likely Jadarius "Lil Jeezy" Jenkins, Jeezy's 17-year-old son, who the rapper threw a lavish Sweet 16 bash for just two months before their alleged fight.
Meawhile, Jeezy was released from custody after posting $45,000 bond and has neither confirmed nor denied the altercation. He does however believe things will be cleared up, so says his lawyer. "We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately," the attorney told TMZ. "At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family's privacy."
