Soulja Boy was arrested earlier this morning in Temple, Georgia after police discovered ample amounts of marijuana, guns and cash inside of his car.
The “Crank That” rapper, 21, was in a car with four other men when police pulled them over for a traffic violation. After inspecting the vehicle, cops discovered a “substantial amount” of cash and weed, estimated around $70,000, inside the vehicle. All five were arrested, and Soulja Boy is currently being held in Carrol County Jail.
Guns were also found in the car, though it’s unclear if any of them had licenses for them.
UPDATE: According to Billboard’s The Juice, Soulja Boy and the four others arrested are being charged with felony possession of marijuana, felony possession of a weapon in commission of a crime and possession with intent to distribute. The five will go before a judge to be formally charged.
Temple Police spokesperson Dana Rampy denied that they had “roughly $70,000 in cash and drugs.” “I don’t know where they got that,” she said.
UPDATE #2: Soulja Boy took to his Twitter account to apologize to fans for his behavior, as well as those involved in putting out his new movie.
