Souljah Boy gets arrested and is hit with a FELONY charge!
At 4 a.m Wednesday morning, 23 year-old hip hop artist Soulja Boy, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was pulled over in Los Angeles for running a stop sign. During the stop, police noticed that he was in of a loaded gun, which he presumably did not have legal documentation to be packing. However, this is not Soulja Boy first run-in with the law. If you recall, in 2011 he was busted with cash, weed and guns in a briefcase during a traffic stop.
Soulja who was taken to a nearby jail and booked on a felony charge was granted a bail for $35,000 and was released Wednesday afternoon.
The local district attorney in Carroll County, Georgia, declined to prosecute the case because federal prosecutors took it over, according to a spokesman for the district attorney.
