An argument at a suburban Atlanta strip club netted a disorderly conduct charge for rapper Young Jeezy and some friends last Thursday, authorities said.

The rapper, whose real name is Jay Jenkins, was arrested after the incident at the strip club in Clarkston, said DeKalb County police spokesman Michael Payne.

"Evidently there was some type of altercation in the club -- someone didn't want to leave," Payne said. "It turns out one of the people in the group was Jay Jenkins or Young Jeezy. Evidently he was there with his sister and some friends."

Payne said off-duty police officers from the nearby community of Pine Lake were handling security at the club, and called for backup from the county police.

He said Jenkins and two male friends were booked on disorderly conduct charges at the DeKalb jail and released. He said Jenkins' sister was given a citation for disorderly conduct but wasn't booked at the jail. "There was no physical confrontation. It was all verbal and basically being belligerent," Payne said.

DeKalb County authorities couldn't immediately provide the status of the charges.
