A grand jury returned a warrant for each charge related to an incident between Jeezy and his son that allegedly occurred in September 2012.

The Atlanta-based rapper’s son allegedly hit his head on the shower door and was punched in the face by Jeezy.

The Soul Survivor rapper then allegedly dragged his son into a bedroom, tossed him on a bed and pummeled him, according to court documents.
