Young Jezzy Gets Jailed in South Beach

 Miami Beach police arrested Young Jeezy early Saturday morning (March 11) and charged the Atlanta-based rapper with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.

According to the Miami Herald, Jezzy (born Jay Jenkins) and members of his entourage were involved in a scuffle that broke out around 5:30 a.m. Friday morning on the 1200 block of Washington Avenue.

Marco Raez, a passerby, reportedly begun filming the altercation and was spotted by Tramiel De Juan Golden, a producer and one of Jeezy's associates. According to Raez, Golden demanded the camera from him but he refused. Soon afterwards, Raheem Karriem, another one of Jeezy's associates, begun shooting, forcing Raez to give up the camera.

Jeezy and about nine other men then fled the scene in two sport utility vehicles but authorities eventually caught up with them and found a semi-automatic firearm under Jeezy's seat.

Golden was charged with strong armed robbery and Steven Lesly Savain, another Jeezy associate, was taken into custody on trespassing charges stemming from previous warrant for his arrest.

Before he was stopped by police, Karriem smashed into three parked cars. Charges pressed against Karriem were not available at press time.

Violence has become common place for Young Jeezy ever since his entrance in the music industry in 2005. Slick Pulla, an artist from Young Jeezy's Corporate Thugz Entertainment label, was shot at a popular Atlanta pizzeria last month.

Pookie Loc, another one of his artists, was shot to death by Gucci Mane who was feuding with Jeezy.
