Young Jeezy turned himself into police after being issued a warrant for allegedly beating, trapping, and threatening to kill his 17-year-old son in September 2012. A matter his publicist said should "resolve itself appropriately."
Date: January 7
"Young Jeezy [was] been arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, terrorist threats. [TMZ had] acquired the charging documents, which [said] that Jeezy and his son got into a physical altercation in September 2012.
The incident, which happened in a bathroom, involved Jeezy throwing his son into a glass shower door, after which, Jeezy 'allegedly punched [his son] in the face, dragged him into the bedroom, threw him on the bed and pummeled him. Jeezy reportedly also told his son, 'I will kill you... I will put a bullet in your head right now... If I could get away with it, I would kill you.'
A grand jury warrant was issued for each of the charges and Jeezy, subsequently, turned himself into the authorities on Friday. He posted a $45,000 quickly after the arrest."—Claire Lobenfeld
Later in the week, Jeezy "denied the details of [the] report that he assaulted his son Jadarius in September 2012. [TMZ reported] that Jeezy [claimed] to have only shoved his son to the ground in self-defense, but otherwise did not physically touch him.
Along with battery and false imprisonment, Jeezy was charged with making terrorist threats against his son, including telling his son, 'I will kill you... I will put a bullet in your head right now' according to police reports. Jeezy has told sources that he said, 'I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it.'
TMZ also [alleged] that their sources close to Jeezy believe the root of the issue stems from Jadarius' mother Tenesha Dykes. They report that she 'is brainwashing the son against his dad and trying to squeeze every penny she can get from Jeezy.'"—Dharmic X
