Young Jeezy's Security Beats NYC Gun Charges; 'Hip-Hop Police' Unit Name Revealed

The "Hip-Hop Police" were scrutinized this morning during a court hearing involving security for internationally known rap star Young Jeezy.

Jeezy's head of security, Stephen Helin, was in court today (September 12th), over an incident after a concert featuring rapper Jay-Z at Madison Square Garden in March of 2010.

Stephen Helin and several other members of Young Jeezy's security detail were arrested after the concert on March 3rd, 2010, around 5:00AM, with at least five guns.

Each defendant was facing a mandatory minimum of 3.5 years, under New York's strict anti-gun laws, which have resulted in jail time for celebrities like Lil Wayne, Ja Rule, Prodigy, Plaxico Burress and others.

According to Stephen Helin's lawyer Scott Leemon ESQ., the specific facts of the case forced the New York County D.A.'s office to reduce the felony gun charges to misdemeanors.

"Today, right before the scheduled Suppression Hearing in New York County Supreme Court, the New York County DA's office, because of the specific facts of this case, offered the defendants an opportunity to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree with a promised sentence of a Conditional Discharge (requires no probation supervision) and a $1000 fine," Scott Leemon ESQ., told

Each man was licensed and had a permit to carry their guns, but only in the state of Georgia. At the time of their arrest, the guns were found in locked boxes, not on any one person.

Leemon said that prosecutors decided to reduce the gun charges to misdemeanors, due to the questionable tactics by the "Hip-Hop Police," which has learned is now officially known as "Enterprise Operation Unit.”

"They were facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 3.5 years in State Prison if convicted of any of the charges in the indictment before the plea," Scott Leemon ESQ. told "The defendants accepted the People's offer and the hearing never went forward. Justice Charles Solomon accepted the plea and scheduled sentencing for November 29, 2011."

The police allegedly did not want to jeopardize any ongoing investigations, although more specifics about who is being targeted was not available.

Leemon said that during today's hearing, his plan was to expose the "Hip-Hop Police" and whether or not Young Jeezy's security detail's Constitutional rights had been violated.

Prosecutors decided to drastically reduce the charges, resulting in the cancellation of the hearing.

"The hearing was scheduled to focus on the methods and means used by the Hip Hop Police (a/k/a "Enterprise Operation Unit") in the arrest of the defendants in this case; and, specifically whether the stop of the van and seizure of evidence was legal under the law in the State of New York," Scott Leemon told

Young Jeezy was not available for comment as of press time

Andy Whitfield, 'Spartacus' Star, Dead At 39

Andy Whitfield, star of the Starz Entertainment sword-and-sandal series "Spartacus," died in Australia on Sunday at the age of 39.

The muscled actor succumbed to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a type of blood cancer with which he was diagnosed in March 2010, according to The New York Times.

Whitfield was born in Wales, but made his home in Australia, where he first came to attention after stints in a number TV shows, including "All Saints" and "Packed to the Rafters." The sometime model had his biggest breakthrough, though, when he was cast in the Starz series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," in which he played the title role of a soldier who leads a rebellion against the Roman Empire. The series was an instant hit thanks to his turn in the classic role that had previously been filled by such screen icons as Kirk Douglas.

Look back when Hollywood Crush named Andy Whitfield a Hump Day Hottie last year.

After his diagnosis last March, Whitfield began to undergo treatment in New Zealand, which led to the delay of the second season of the show and the filming of a six-part prequel, "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena," for which he provided some voiceover work. He was initially declared cancer-free a few months after treatment, but suffered a relapse later in the year that forced him to abandon the role, which was recast.

His wife, Vashti, issued a statement on Sunday confirming his death. "On a beautiful sunny Sydney morning, surrounded by his family, in the arms of his love wife, our beautiful young warrior Andy Whitfield lost his 18-month battle with lymphoma cancer ... he passed peacefully surrounded by love," the statement said. "Thank you to all his fans whose love and support have helped carry him to this point. He will be remembered as the inspiring, courageous and gentle man, father and husband he was."

The cable network Whitfield called home also released a statement on his passing. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield," said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. "We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in 'Spartacus' and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life. Andy was an inspiration to all of us as he faced this very personal battle with courage, strength and grace. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. He will live on in the hearts of his family, friends and fans."
