Soulja Boy Arrested for Running from Cops

10/9/2009 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soulja boyRap star Soulja Boy was arrested in Georgia Wednesday night after authorities say he ran from a police officer.

According to a police spokesperson, an officer got a call about juveniles hanging out at an abandoned house in the Henry County area.

Cops say when the officer rolled up to the home, he saw some women walking towards the yard and asked them to stop -- but when they didn't, he followed them into the yard.

The officer says when he walked inside, he saw roughly 40 people in the yard -- and when they saw the cop, half of the people immediately booked it out of the home, including 19-year-old Soulja Boy.

The people who stayed in the party claimed they were at the house for a "music video shoot."

The cop says Soulja eventually returned to the home to retrieve his Range Rover -- and that's when he was arrested for obstruction of justice ... a misdemeanor.

Celebrity Mug ShotsSoulja Boy, real name Deandre Cortez Way, was taken to jail and released.

Another man was arrested during the incident for forgery -- cops tell us the suspect had eight counterfeit $100 bills. Cops also say they recovered a 9mm handgun in one of the cars in the driveway of the house -- but they don't know who the gun belongs to.

I have just two requests:

1. Stop using made up names for morons, they must use what their mothers gave them.

2. Jail all rappers immediately, '(c)rap' is not music.

The only reason he ran, was to ditch his dope, Its easier to take an obstruction charge,misdemeanor, than to take a felony charge of cocaine possession with intent to sell,cause ya know being the head rapper you have to supply enough for everybody,probably a couple of ounces, a 10-20 year charge,Stupid lil wanna be thugs....Oh an Soulja Boy, if ya never served your country in the military,loose the name,You disrespect everyone who has fought, died and served,This country,Punk Azz

Typical rapper/thug behavior, run from the cops. Since most rapper/thugs are black one could easily get the impression that all blacks are rapper/thug lawbreakers. While this isn't necessarily correct I don't see the black community doing much to dispel the impression. After the killing video in Chicago, maybe it is correct.

Typical rapper behavior?

Then by that stanadard, one should assume all white men are child molesters right?

That seems to me to be crime of choice for your guys, kiddie porn, every time we see some story on the news involving child rape its seem like its always a white guy right?

White men just kill me. Thinking they have a one up on the black man all the time. Hilarious.

Oh and I'm a white girl, whom is married to a former white red-neck with a bad attitute. now reformed thanks to me.
I don't play that tough white guy, better then you race crap.

But...most important here, who runs form the cops in a Range Rover? If one is going to run, make sure you can get away.
