TMZ is reporting that Jeezy turned himself in to police last Friday on two grand jury warrants that stem from a 2012 altercation with his teenage son. Apparently Jeezy and Junior got into a pretty heated physical dispute during which the Rapper threatened to kill his son, saying he would do it if he thought he could get away with it. Because of his statements during the fight, Jeezy was hit with charges of making terroristic threats and false imprisonment in addition to battery.
I don’t know, but as a parent, I don’t want to live in a world where you can’t beat the ever living shit out of your teenage son if they give you lip. Beating on defenseless little kids is one thing, but at 15 or 16, you’re a grown ass man. I certainly got my ass handed to me by pop dukes a couple of times, and in retrospect, I deserved all of it.
UPDATE: Jeezy has issued a statement on the arrest:
Jay Jenkins, better known as rapper Young Jeezy, was recently made aware of charges in Atlanta, Georgia. Contrary to reports, Mr. Jenkins presented himself to address these charges. 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.
