Young Jeezy Arrested for Obstructing Police
Young Jeezy is back behind bars. The “R.I.P.” rapper was arrested near Atlanta on Tuesday after he allegedly cussed out cops.
According to TMZ, the 36-year-old, born Jay Jenkins, was busted in Alpharetta, Ga., after cops responded to an alarm call at his girlfriend’s house.
Police arrived at the scene, but Jeezy was reportedly uncooperative with officers, refusing to identify himself, and cussed them out.
When asked for his name and ID, Jeezy told the officer, “F**k you, I ain’t telling you,” and he attempted to leave when cops were cuffing him. He was subsequently booked for obstructing police.
Earlier this month, he was arrested for battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats after a fight with his son.
He’s been booked at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.
UPDATE: Jeezy tells TMZ that the cops started “antagonizing” him as soon as they realized who he was. He says that they treated him like a criminal, refusing to let him make a phone call and forcing him to stand outside while searching the home.
