EXCLUSIVE

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."

Sounds like a teenager that was not listening to Dad. Skipping school and trying to be a thug. Like Bill Cosby said, "I brought you in this world, I'll take you out"

"We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately...." That's ****ing pathetic. Take the kid away from that piece of ****. If the kid is old enough, he needs to get out of there & away from his "father". Just imagine what jeezy put his son through his whole life....I hope the kid isn't damaged, cause "beatings" can breed aggression. Jeezy is not a father, he's a ****ing bomb that is going to explode & people need to get the **** away from him.

He probably had a good reason. Thats your father you respect his decisions and demands. He has all the money in the world . thus for he supports you with anything possible or needed.Probably just a spoiled kid getting hard with someone who had nothing at his age.

Obviously there's more to this. Why were cops not on the scene at the time of the incident? Why so long? Is there a civil case involving $$ pending? This sounds really really bad - which means its probably not that bad.
