It must be something in the Cristal. Jay Wayne Jenkins aka Young Jeezy was taken into police custody for battery, false imprisonment and terroristic threats against his son (name and age of the boy have not been released yet). Jeezy allegedly got into a fight, which turned violent and physical when he pushed his son into a glass door and began punching him in his face. When the son tried to escape, Jeezy's bodyguard blocked the way out while Jeezy began choking him and said to him "I will kill you. I will put a bullet in your head right now."

The incident occurred back in 2012, but he was forced to turn himself in on January 3rd 2014 after a grand jury issued a warrant for his arrest. He is now free on $45,000 bail and it is not clear what will happen next in this case. Jeezy's lawyer told 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." The rapper has had previous run-ins with the law which include charges for carrying a concealed firearm (they were later dropped) filed against for copyright infringement and was implemented in a cocaine trafficking ring in 2008.
