Young Jeezy

ARRESTED for False Imprisonment, Battery, Terroristic Threats on Son

1/7/2014 10:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0107-young-jeezy-sonRapper Young Jeezy was arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats against his own son ... TMZ has learned.

According to the charging documents -- obtained by TMZ -- Jeezy got into a fight with his son 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.  

According to the incident report, Jeezy's son attempted to escape but the rapper's bodyguard blocked the stairwell.

The docs go on -- claiming Jeezy subsequently choked his son and said, "I will kill you."  According to police docs, 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."  The incident allegedly occurred in Sept., 2012.

We've learned 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 tells TMZ, "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."

TMZ has directories for TMZ SPORTS, TMZ TV, CELEBS, etc... Why not TMZ RAP SHEET. Seems there is always a rap "star" in trouble with the law or a "baby mama" at least twice a week.

The role models of today. We have super rich douchers who horde money, we have spoiled whores who make sltutting it up super cool, we have whiny Beibers and we have ultra violent rappers. No wonder society is hitting an all time low.

Gtfo no one has any right to touch any other person like that especially a young kid! But if a white guy did this to his black step kid or whatever holy **** it would be hitting CNN! and no not racist just tired of one sided rights.
