MIAMI BEACH, Fla.- Young Jeezy was arrested after an alleged shootout in South Beach involving some of his friends. The 28-year-old rapper, born Jay Jenkins, was charged early Saturday with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit, police said. Jenkins was with a group of men involved in a fight around 5:30 a.m. Friday, according to a police report.
When a passer-by filming the fight refused to hand over his video camera, one of the men in the group began shooting, the report stated.
Jenkins and about nine men fled the scene in two sport utility vehicles, police spokesman Robert Hernandez told The Miami Herald.
Officers stopped both vehicles, and found a semiautomatic firearm under Jenkins’ seat and another gun near the armrest when they searched his SUV.
Two members of Jenkins’ group also were arrested. Tramiel De Juan Golden was charged with strong armed robbery, and Steven Lesly Savain of Kendall was taken into custody on trespassing charges stemming from previous warrant for his arrest.
Young Jeezy’s album “Let’s Get It” was released in July.
