In March 2006, Florida authorities charged Jay Jenkins (aka Young Jeezy) with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm without a permit. Miami Beach police reports state that the 28-year-old rapper was arrested after an alleged shootout in South Beach involving several members of his entourage. Authorities stopped the group a short time later and found a semi-automatic gun under Jeezy's seat and another near the armrest.
