More Details Regarding The Alleged Initial Incident
According to information obtained by the Hall County Sheriff’s Office via TMZ, officers responded to a call from an unidentified woman on October 15. Once they arrived at the woman’s residence, she informed them that Yung Bleu, whose real name is Jeremy Biddle, had arrived at her home unannounced.
Additionally, the woman alleged that the artist attempted to leave the residence with a 10-year-old child.
The woman told authorities that an argument unfolded between her and the artist. Then, Yung Bleu allegedly “picked her up” and “threw her to the ground.” This allegedly injured the woman’s “right arm and hip.”
From there, the woman told authorities that Yung Bleu left the residence with the child. However, he returned “shortly after” and allegedly “left again.”
According to TMZ, an EMS crew reportedly evaluated the woman for her injuries. However, she refused to be transported to a hospital.
More Details Regarding Yung Bleu’s Arrest & Charge
TMZ adds that Yung Bleu reportedly “agreed to meet with deputies in person” following the alleged incident. The 29-year-old was reportedly arrested for misdemeanor battery and booked into the Hall County Jail around 2:30 a.m.
According to the outlet, the “You’re Mines Still” artist was released from jail “a few days later” after posting $2,400 bail.
Hall County booking records obtained by The Shade Room Thursday evening show that Yung Bleu has been charged with a “battery family violence act.” According to Peach State Lawyers, family violence battery is “the identical charge of battery” in Georgia. However, it also implies that the “alleged victim in the case has some sort of familial connection to the accused.”
Peach State Lawyers also adds that in order for an incident to constitute family violence battery, it must involve “spouses or former spouses, individuals who have a child together, parents and children,” or similar relationships.
Furthermore, the booking record confirms that the artist was arrested on October 15.
As of Friday, October 20, Yung Bleu’s booking record appears to have been removed from the Hall County bookings website.
