ALPHARETTA, Ga. (WSB-TV) -- Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy was arrested Tuesday afternoon for the second time in less than three weeks.
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 being booked into the Fulton County jail late Tuesday, booking records show.
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. Behind the townhouse, officers saw Jenkins walking out of the townhouse, and he told them it was his girlfriend’s home, Gordon said.
But Jenkins refused to show his identification or give his name and cursed at officers, who then arrested him, Gordon said. No further details were released about the incident late Tuesday.
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.
Jenkins is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 29 for a plea and arraignment hearing on the previous charges.
