Rapper Young Jeezy will appear in court today to face charges stemming from an alleged altercation with his son. 

The rapper turned himself into Atlanta authorities earlier this month on charges of battery, false imprisonment and making terroristic threats.  The charges apparently stem from a September 2012 incident in which Jeezy reportedly tossed his son against a glass shower door. 

Jeezy -- born Jay Jenkins -- is also accused of punching his son in the face and threatening to kill him.  Jeezy allegedly told his son that he would "put a bullet in your head right now."    

Last Tuesday, Jeezy was arrested again and charged with obstruction.  Police claim the rapper refused to surrender his ID and wouldn't give them his name when they responded to a report of a tripped security alarm at an apartment.  He is also accused of cursing at officers.
