Young Jeezy

This Go Getta went and got himself a DUI.

Rapper Young Jeezy was collared at 2:30 a.m. in Atlanta for allegedly driving under the influence and some bad motoring skills, authorities tell E! News.

According to police, the hip-hopster was behind the wheel of a white Corvette on the ATL's Buford Highway thoroughfare near Interstate 85 when he was pulled over. Along with the DUI, officers cited him for speeding, reckless driving, missing tags, driving with an open container and failing to show proof of insurance.

The 31-year-old Jeezy, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, was taken into custody and booked at a nearby station before being released on bail several hours later.

He's scheduled to return to court July 17.

Reps for the MC were not immediately available for comment.

Jeezy was in town to perform at Hot 107.9's annual Birthday Bash, an all-star concert that also featured Kanye West and Usher.

The rapper, whose latest album, The Recession, drops in August, is no stranger to law enforcement.

He was arrested for disorderly conduct at a strip club in 2007. A year earlier, he managed to avoid potentially serious charges after Miami prosecutors couldn't find enough evidence to charge him following an arrest in a shooting incident.
