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.

Once again here is ignorance at it's best.Our young black males are the puffones of the industry.It's sad to watch clown after clown carted off to jail in the hot pursuit of selling the filth they have been allowed to parade as music.Yeah the thug,jailbird and drug dealer images are the best things our black children should inspire to be.Can't get to many young black males to go to college due to the madness promoted by the music industry today.But as always none of this madness wouldn't be going on if not for the minister's ever going desire for money.This generation is one that is lost and we all will pay for it shortly as an society.

You, crank 'dat prison rape
you, crank 'dat prison rape

So JB commits a crime and DOESN'T get arrested ( for something besides making the ****tiest music since Milli Vanilli), while SB commits a MISDEMEANOR and GETS arrested (for something besides making the most godawful music BEFORE Justin Bieber).

I smell a possible double standard >_>
