Hip-hop star Soulja Boy arrested in Georgia

TEMPLE, Ga. (AP) -October 18, 2011

Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw tells The Associated Press that police stopped the rented Cadillac Escalade early Tuesday morning because a light wasn't working. He said officers found marijuana inside.

The artist, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, was booked into the Carroll County Jail on charges of marijuana and firearms possession. He was subsequently released on $10,000 bond.

Shaw said that based on what he knows of the arrest, all five occupants of the car were very cordial.

Carroll County officials say Way was represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
