Soulja Boy

Youuuuuuuuuu Got Arrested

10/18/2011 5:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Soulja Boy Mugshot
Soulja Boy was arrested early this morning for weed possession ... and law enforcement sources tell TMZ cops allegedly found a ton of weed and cash during the arrest. 
 
The 21-year-old rapper -- real name DeAndre Cortez Way -- was popped early this morning by Temple Police Department officers in Temple, GA at 3:15 AM.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Soulja was riding in an Escalade with 4 other men, which was originally pulled over for a traffic violation.

We're told ... during the stop, cops found a "substantial amount" of marijuana and cash inside the vehicle." Soulja and the 4 other men were all arrested. Soulja is still being held in Carrol County Jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers also found guns inside the car -- though it's unclear if any of the men had the proper licenses to be in possession of the firearms.  We're told an investigation is underway.

One source with knowledge of the situation tells us there was roughly $70,000 in cash and drugs in the car.

Why is TMZ writing stories on Soulja Boy? He's irrelevant. And is it just me or does Mike Waters wear black every single day.

Soulja is tough enough to bash the Army, so he should be tough enough to handle some extended prison time.

Be a man, Boy, be a man. You asked for it.

They aren't gonna go easy after his lyrics about the military. Many cops are ex-military. They didn't appreciate that s**t.

LOL, I really can't say that I know much about him. However, the only thing I do know is he had a song that triggered controversy among soldiers, families and supporters of the military. So, I think that it is funny that KARMA would come back @ him. I know it's his freedom of speech to say what he would like but he should remember that the freedom of speech doesn't apply to the rules of KARMA. Again, LOL

Give him 400 hours of community service...and he has to spend it in Marine Corp basic training. We'll see how MR. "flock the military" holds up. Freaking punk.

Carroll County is one of the last places you want to get locked up. If they didn't find anything on him they would've planted it! Shady mo fos......

This guy is a turd. Hopefully they'll keep him locked up for a while. I don't care about the weed... but $70k in cash and guns seems like someone was up to no good. Karma is a b*tch.
