Was Young Jeezy Arrested?
Reports surfaced this week that Young Jeezy was arrested in the Bahamas on Saturday (December 4), but the rapper's team is denying that it ever it took place.
Jeezy's manager, Demetrius Ellerbee, told MTV on Wednesday (December 8) that "It's not true."
Bahamian newspaper The Tribune reported that the Atlanta rapper was on his way to a show in an area of the island called New Providence, when he was arrested by local officials.
A reason for the arrest wasn't revealed, but the paper said Jeezy wasn't held for very long.
"He was here with us a short while. He passed through the station briefly on Saturday," said Superintendent Ashton Greenslade, an officer at the Wulff Road station. "He was booked in here and taken to CDU (Central Detective Unit)."
A source told The Tribune that Jeezy was simply "in the wrong place at the wrong time."
