It’s looking like the Snowman is in the clear. The AK-47 assault rifle that landed Jeezy and his associates in jail actually belongs to his head of security, who at the time was in the hospital.

TMZ reports:

Sources tell us the gun’s owner — the tour’s security chief — had a good reason for not being there … the guy got shot in the arm at 1Oak nightclub the night before. We’re told he was caught in the crossfire when Suge Knight got shot 6 times … and TMZ got video of him leaving the club with his wounded arm all wrapped up.

We’re told there are serious questions about Jeezy’s arrest. According to law enforcement sources the AK-47 wasn’t found anywhere near him. It was in a closed case in an area associated with someone other than Jeezy. Meanwhile, he was in an entirely separate cabin of the bus where NO weapons were found. 

Official reports related to the arrest indicate the arresting officers were repeatedly told the registered owner of the weapon was the tour security chief, and that he was hospitalized. 

So it seems that the cops were overzealous in their arrest of a “gangsta” rapper on tour? Color us shocked…

Nevertheless, Jeezy’s new album, Seen It All: The Autobiography, dropped on Tuesday (Sept. 2) to positive reviews.
