Young Jeezy is in serious trouble with the law.

The rapper was arrested in Atlanta on Friday on charges of battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats… against his own son.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that the alleged incident took place in September of 2012 and that Jeezy turned himself in last week after a grand jury warrant for each charge was issued.

The legal documents say Jeezy went all Chris Brown on his teenage child, getting into a brawl with the boy in a bathroom; throwing him through a glass shower door; punching him in the face; and continuing to beat on him in the bedroom.

Based on the incident report, Jeezy's son tried to escape but the artist bodyguard blocked the stairwell.

Jeezy is also accused of telling the teenager "I will put a bullet in your head right now" and "If I could get away with it, I would kill you."

"We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately," says Jeezy's attorney. "At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family's privacy."

The musician is currently out on bond.
