Fulton County sheriff's officials say Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy surrendered late last week on charges including terroristic threats, false imprisonment and battery.

According to Fulton County jail records, the rapper is free on $45,000 bond.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan says the rapper turned himself on Friday to face charges linked to a grand jury warrant. A report outlining details of the allegations wasn't immediately available, including when the allegations were made and by whom.

One of the rapper's representatives said he didn't have details of the allegations and had no comment.

Flanagan says the rapper, whose real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins, is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 29 for a plea and arraignment hearing.
