After drugs arrest, Soulja Boy tells fans gathered at bail bond company that he's innocent
TEMPLE, Georgia (AP) ' Hip-hop star Soulja Boy proclaimed his innocence as he encountered dozens of screaming fans outside a bail bond company following his arrest on a drug charge in Georgia.
CBS Atlanta reports that the artist said "I'm innocent, man" during the chaotic scene Tuesday as bodyguards rushed him into a waiting car.
Soulja Boy, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, faces a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in the west Georgia town of Temple.
Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw said police stopped the Cadillac Escalade early Tuesday because a light wasn't working. He said officers found marijuana inside.
The rapper was released on $10,000 bond.
Carroll County officials say he was represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
