Soulja Boy arrested on drug charges

The rapper, Soulja Boy, was arrested and charged with drug possession and weapons possession on Tuesday night. The rapper was pulled over by law enforcement officers who observed a broken tail light. Once the officers pulled over the SUV, they said that they smelled marijuana. They then searched the vehicle and allegedly found $46,000 case and more than five ounces of marijuana.

Police arrested Soulja Boy, his driver and three other people who were in the vehicle. All were brought to jail and face drug possession and weapons charges. The officers also found a puppy in the vehicle, but Soulja Boy was able to bring him home again after he posted $10,000 bail.

Dozens of fans waited outside a bail bonds shop as the celebrity posted bail. Soulja Boy thanked his fans for their support on Twitter and proclaimed his innocence.

Soulja Boy emphasized that he was not guilty of the drug and weapons charges. At the same time he promoted his new movie, which came out on the same day that he was arrested for the drug charges. The new movie is called "Soulja Boy: The Movie." Coincidence? It will be interesting to see if the charges stick or result in any jail time.
