While the holiday season is usually a time for family togetherness, Young Jeezy had some serious drama with his son on Friday (January 3).

Just three days into 2014, the Atlanta rapper (real name: Jay Wayne Jenkins) was arrested for allegedly beating up his boy back in September 2012.

According to police documents, Jeezy slammed his son’s head into a shower door, punched him in the face, and choked him while shouting, “If I could get away with it I would kill you!”

Shortly after his arrest, Young Jeezy was released on $45,000 bail. His lawyer told press, “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately. At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”
