Young Jeezy Arrested For Pleading The Fifth? Or Was It Holding,”A Fifth?”
January 29, 2014
This is your man Maestro checking in from Los Angeles where dreams are made and suckers get played. The only place in the world where stars appear at your feet and the HOLLYWOOD sign can be seen from the street. But in the middle of calm and chaos I saw in the headlines rapper Young Jeezy was arrested. Again?
According to TMZ and other sources on hand my home boy was arrested in Alpharetta for ALLEGEDLY telling the poe-poe, “f$@k you!” “I ain’t telling you”.
So the question is:” Can police detain and question you?” Well, that depends entirely on the circumstances at hand. Let’s deb into my looking glass to see what we can find on the subject.
First and foremost, I want to be very clear. ”Detentions are voluntary unless you verbally ask to leave”. So what that translates to is, any time police detain you it would be a good idea to ask, “am I free to go?” If he refuses to allow you to leave, his actions could amount to an unlawful detention. And on the other hand if the officer says your not under arrest, just simply walk away.
Oh! The next time Young Jeezy decides to invoke his 5th Amendment rights, make sure his right hand is empty so he can raise it. (lol) Street Justice gives Young Jeezy five mics
Note: Some states laws may vary. So don’t get caught up in the hype and find yourself trying to make bail. Separate rules may apply at check points and when entering the US (which may also include airports). 911 changed the face of our Constitution considerably. I suppose I’ll finish sightseeing and be on my way. Until next time this is Maestro!
