Money might get you a lawyer, but the fame will get you harassed, so says sources close to Jeezy.

According to TMZ, the rapper believes police were "antagonizing" him when he was arrested Tuesday (Jan. 21), all because of who he is.

Jeezy was brought in to a Fulton County, Ga., Jail after cussing out cops who were responding to a panic call at his girlfriend's house.

Sources close to him say that the arresting officers recognized him and began treating him "like a criminal" [TMZ's words], denying him the chance to make a phone call and forcing him to stand outside of the residence while they searched inside — apparently for anything to charge him for.

Previously, it was reported that Jeezy yelled "F--k you, I ain't telling you [who I am]" to the cops. Police say he resisted when they attempted to put cuffs on him and accused him of obstruction.

As of press time, it's still unclear who or why the panic alarm was set off.
