Atlanta, Georgia rapper Young Jeezy was arrested Saturday morning and charged with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, after the rapper was involved in an altercation on South Beach in Miami, Florida.
Young Jeezy, born Jay Jenkins, and an entourage of men allegedly associated with BMF, were involved in a fight with a group of men around 5:30 am on Saturday (Mar. 11). When a person filming the altercation refused to turn over the video camera, one of the men in the crowd began firing.
Police said Jeezy and a group of men, fled in two SUV’s. When officers stopped both vehicles, they found a semiautomatic weapon under the seat of the rapper’s Infiniti Qx56, as well as another gun near the arm rest.
Two other men with Young Jeezy were also arrested in connection with the incident. One man was charged with strong armed robbery, the other was arrested on a previous trespassing warrant.
The rapper’s attorney said he will fight the charges and denied ownership of any of the weapons that were recovered from the SUV.
