Soulja Boy has got himself in a sticky situation. The 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Way, was arrested early Tuesday, October 18 morning in Temple, Georgia after police found a "substantial amount" of marijuana, cash and handguns inside the car he was riding with 4 others during a routine traffic stop.

The "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" rapper and his crew were stopped for a routine traffic violation at 2:30 A.M. when traveling in a Cadillac Escalade on Interstate 20 about 50 miles west of Atlanta, Temple Police spokeswoman Dana Rampy said. When the police searched the SUV, they discovered the weed, cash and firearms.

To the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Rampy shared, "It was a lot of marijuana," but didn't disclose the amount of marijuana or money found. As for TMZ report that all five men had "roughly $70,000 in cash and drugs" in the car, the spokeswoman told Billboard, "I don't know where they got that."

Soulja and his crew, who were said to be "very cordial" and cooperative with police, were taken to the Carroll County jail, where they were booked for possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm in commission of a crime. Soulja has since been released on a $10,000 bond.
