Hip-hop star Soulja Boy arrested in Georgia
TEMPLE, Ga. (AP) — 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 tells The Associated Press that police stopped the rented Cadillac Escalade early Tuesday morning. He said officers found marijuana inside.
Police say the car was stopped because a light was not working.
The artist, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, was booked into the Carroll County Jail on charges of marijuana and firearms possession. His bond was set at $10,000.
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 is represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
