It's been a tough week for Atlanta rap superstar Jay "Young Jeezy" Jenkins.

First, Jeezy was implicated in Atlanta federal court on June 12 as having participated in the Black Mafia Family's multistate cocaine ring. He has not been charged with a crime in connection to the witness's testimony.

Then, at 2:30 this morning, Jeezy was arrested on I-85 and Buford Highway and charged with driving without a tag and insurance, speeding, reckless driving, DUI and open container.

We'll update as we learn more ...

UPDATE: Here's a statement from Jeezy's New York-based lawyer, Scott Leemon:

“Last night, Young Jeezy was pulled over shortly after leaving the studio to work on his new album, 'The Recession.'  After being charged with various automobile related offenses, Jeezy was quickly processed and released. A court date has been scheduled and Jeezy looks forward to getting the matter resolved.”
