Police may think Jeezy had something to do with a 38-year-old man losing his life backstage of Wiz Khalifa’s Under The Influence tour on Friday. AllHipHop learned that the Snowman’s tour bus was stopped and searched by coppers Sunday night in connection to the Friday shooting.
Jeezy had a run in with police that prevented him from performing at a tour date along the “Under The Influence of Music” tour, according to sources with AllHipHop.
The situation unfurled at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater Irvine in Irvine, CA, where Jeezy was unable to hit the stage.
Source say Jeezy never left his tour bus, much less get on stage to perform for thousands of fans.
Authorities have not released their motivation for the stoppage, but insiders have indicated that it may be related to a situation on Friday that left a man shot to death. A 38-year-old man was shot backstage from a person dressed in all black with a red hat, according to witnesses. [AllHipHop]
While AHH claimed Jeezy was a free a man at the time of their report, it appears that’s no longer the case.
According to this here booking information, the 36-year-old rapper — real name Jay Wayne Jenkins — was arrested last night and is currently being held on $1 million bail. He’s scheduled to appear before a judge on Tuesday, just one week before the release of his album, Seen It All.
Rapper YG also bonfirmed Jeezy’s burrent status with this “#FreeJeezy” tweet.

Update by Gotty: The almighty TMZ’s sources say that Jeezy was rolling with an assault rifle while on tour. While cops were searching for the shooter at the show, they happened upon Snow’s chopper.
“Young Jeezy is currently behind bars for possession of an assault rifle.
“We’re told Irvine PD executed a search warrant on the rapper’s tour bus Sunday at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in connection with the shooting in Mountain View, CA … where a man died after being shot 5 times.
“…Law enforcement sources tell us during the search cops found an assault rifle they believe belongs to Jeezy. Several members of Jeezy’s entourage were also arrested for gun possession.” [TMZ]
So entourage members got locked up too? Normally, wouldn’t this mean the cops probably couldn’t get anybody to fess up so they laid charges on Jeezy’s whole crew? This should be easy to fix. One weed carrier steps up, eats the charge and everybody walks away clean.
