Soulja Boy Arrested in Georgia

BBC-0052902Rapper Soulja Boy has been arrested. The star, real name DeAndre Ramone Way, was taken into police custody in Georgia Wednesday night after he ran from a police officer, according to TMZ. He was later charged with obstruction after telling officers that people gathered at an abandoned Georgia house were shooting a music video. Henry County Police Capt. Jason Bolton said Friday that when officers arrived Wednesday night to investigate complaints, almost half of the 40 people assembled fled by foot. Soulja Boy was bonded out of the Henry County jail on Thursday. A telephone call to his publicist was not immediately returned, according to the AP.

Officers apparently discovered a 9mm handgun in one of the cars in the driveway of the home, but are yet to identify its owner. Another man was also taken into custody during the incident for forgery, amid suspicions that he counterfeited eight $100 bills.
