Rap star Young Jeezy is out on bail after being arrested on weapons charges following a Miami Beach shootout which involved his friends. His lawyers say the found guns aren't his.
The gunfire erupted on Saturday morning after a fight involving a group of people Jeezy was with. One of the men involved shot at a passer-by who filmed the fight refused to hand-over his video camera.
Jeezy and nine other men fled the scene but when they were later stopped by police, they found two semi-automatic firearms in the vehicle he was riding in, leading him to be arrested him for carrying concealed weapons without a permit.
"Jeezy adamantly denies that any of the weapons belonged to him and I am confident that Jeezy will be vindicated,” Jeezy's lawyer Scott Leemon says.
Two other men were arrested – one for armed-robbery – after the incident in which no-one was injured.
Jeezy will appear in court to face the charges on March 31st.
