Soulja Boy arrested

2011-10-19 08:59

Georgia – Authorities say hip-hop star Soulja Boy is facing a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in the west Georgia town of Temple on Interstate 20.

Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw told the Associated Press that police stopped the rented Cadillac Escalade early yesterday morning because a light wasn’t working. He said officers found marijuana inside.

The artist, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, was booked into the Carroll County Jail on charges of marijuana and firearms possession. He was subsequently released on $10 000 (R79 500) bail.

Shaw said that based on what he knows of the arrest, all five occupants of the car were very cordial.

Carroll County officials say Way was represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
