Los Angeles police have just arrested rapper Soulja Boy, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, after receiving a tip that threats were being made to individuals on the internet while brandishing what appeared to be a firearm. The problem with that is that Soulja Boy is currently on probation for a previous gun charge which means he is not supposed to be in possession of any firearms.
TMZ is reporting the following:
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they paid a visit to Soulja’s Hollywood Hills home Thursday on a Crime Stoppers tip that Soulja had been threatening people online with guns. Cops showed up, searched his house and we’re told they found a gun inside … so Soulja was arrested.
Soulja Boy is being help without a bond right now.
