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.

Wow. So many comments about how 'lots of people smoke weed' and 'lots of people have guns'...

True. I don't care if people smoke weed. But it's not normal for someone to be DRIVING AROUND with loads of weed, $70k in cash, AND several guns. You're SUPPOSED to go to jail when you make an idiot move like that. It's not 'injustice'. His bonehead comments about the military didn't MAKE him drive around with weed, $70k, and guns. It's just a simple fact that he's stupid enough to think he could get away with it, and didn't.
