TMZ reports that Young Jeezy has been arrested in Atlanta for battery, false imprisonment, terrorist threats. They have acquired the charging documents, which say 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... Iwill 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.

Stay tuned for more details as they come.
