The Henry County Sheriff's Department tells TMZ ... Waka was booked for multiple charges including:

-- Possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce
-- Possession of firearm by convicted felon
-- Possession of hydrocodone
-- Possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony
-- Violation of probation for driving on a suspended license

As we first reported, cops hit Waka's home on December 16 -- and after confiscating all sorts of illegal items, issued an arrest warrant for Waka ... who wasn't home at the time.

Waka's being held on $31,950 bond -- and a hearing is set for tomorrow.

UPDATE: Waka was released on $31,950 bond Wednesday afternoon.

When you grow up in the hood w/ a bunch of thugs who look at prison as something that's just probably gonna be in your future it's hard to teach yourself to become a different person and stay out of trouble.

Not impossible, but very hard.

Lets see two weeks since the raid on his house and now he has turned his self in. Either wanted to have a chance for some of the drugs to get out of his system or just wanted to have one last New Years eve before his time in jail. TMZ do one of your famous polls to see what people really think of this loser.

Interestingly, Fredo according to Soundscan sales(which exclude Mom and Pop stores) the majority of rap and hip hop buyers are ironically white youths. Your criticism is misplaced because based on this evidence your conclusion about problems in the black community because of the increase in record sales for Flocka as a result of his criminogenic behavior could be aimed at the primary purchaser of hip hop music...the white community. Plus Waka is but 1 black person out of a great deal more and he does not represent the majority of Black males. Maybe it is merely the black people you know or have heard about.

Interestingly, Simon Phoenix, you can try selling that trash to someone who doesn't know any better. Here are some FACTS for ya.....the black community has a higher rate of violent crime than any other race. Only 12% of 8th grade black boys are proficient at 8th grade level math. The rate of single parent households per capita is highest amongst the black percentage of the population. Black people have the highest illiteracy rate per capita. Blacks also lead the way in lowest percentile with a college degree.

Now, you can try to make it SOUND like everyone in the black community is living like the Huxtables. But I think the majority of people know better.
