Rapper Jeezy is not off to the best start in 2014. For the second time in just a few weeks Jeezy was arrested; this time he was charged in connection with failing to cooperate with Georgia police.
Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, was arrested and charged with obstruction for allegedly cursing at officers and refusing to provide his name, according to George Gordon, Alpharetta police spokesman. Jenkins, 36, was booked into the North Fulton Alpharetta Annex Jail and released late Tuesday on $1,000 bond, booking records show, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Officers were called to an Alpharetta townhouse because of a security alarm, but no one answered the front door, Gordon told Channel 2 Action News. Officers saw Jenkins walking out behind the townhouse, and he told them it was his girlfriend’s home, Gordon said.
At the back of the house, Jeezy refused to give police his name, began cursing at them and refused to provide identification, according to the officers.
This is Jeezy’s second run in with law, the first stemming from a Jan. 3 incident involving his son.
As reported by ajc.com:
“On Jan. 3, Jenkins surrendered on battery, false imprisonment and terroristic threats charges for an alleged fight with his son in 2012 after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was released the same day after posting $45,000 bond.”
Jeezy will appear in court on Jan. 29 to answer charges from the first incident. No court date has been set for Tuesday’s charges.
