Jeezy Posts Bail After Pleading Not Guilty to Gun Possession
Rapper Jeezy is a free man after spending several days in jail. The Atlanta rhymer posted $1 million bail on Thursday night (Aug. 28) after he was arrested on Sunday (Aug. 24) in California on weapons charges.
Jeezy pleaded not guilty to the gun possession charges on Tuesday (Aug. 26) after police discovered a AK-47 on his tour bus. Five other people were arrested and charged as well.
“All six men have posted bail and are currently being processed,” CTE’s Steve “Steve-O” Carless told MTV News. “They will be out shortly.”
The arrest occurred while Jeezy was on the Under the Influence of Music tour, which was canceled following the death of a 38-year-old man who was shot and killed backstage last Saturday (Aug. 23) at a California show.
Reps for the 'Me OK' rhymer said that the arrest will not stop the release of his new album, 'Seen It All: The Autobiography,' which arrives on Sept. 2.
Jeezy's next court date is scheduled for Sept. 5.
