Soulja Boy Arrested in L.A. for Carrying a Loaded Gun
Ut oh. Rapper Soulja Boy, no stranger to legal problems having been busted for both marijuana and weapons possession back in 2011, was arrested in Los Angeles this morning (Jan. 22). Why was the rapper – DeAndre Cortez Way to his mama and on legal docs -- cuffed? Oh, just for carrying a loaded weapon.
TMZ reports that Soulja Boy, 23, was picked up after the ride in which he was a passenger was pulled over for blowing a stop sign in the San Fernando Valley.
During this seemingly routine traffic stop, cops noticed that the 'Crank That' hitmaker had a loaded gun in his possession and quickly arrested him, carting him off to jail.
Soulja Boy's rap sheet is interesting, for lack of a better word. He was once arrested in Atlanta for fleeing from cops after they asked him to stop filming a video in an abandoned location back in 2009.
He was also reportedly robbed and battered in his home in 2008, which sounds like it was a terrifying incident.
