Rap star Soulja Boy was arrested in Georgia Wednesday night after authorities say he ran from from cops.
Police showed up to a home in Henry County where a music video was being shot. Cops say several people suddenly took off when the cops showed up — including Soulja Boy — but he showed back up a few minutes later and was subsequently arrested.
He was charged with obstruction, a misdemeanor.
Rap star Soulja Boy was arrested in Georgia Wednesday night after authorities say he ran from a police officer.
According to a police spokesperson, an officer went to check out what was believed to be an abandoned house in the Henry County area, after he was told there were a bunch of people hanging out in the backyard.
Cops say when the officer rolled up to the home, he saw some women walking towards the yard and asked them to stop — but when they didn’t, he followed them into the yard.
The officer says when he walked inside, he saw roughly 40 people in the yard — and when they saw the cop, half of the people immediately booked it out of the home, including Soulja Boy.
The people who stayed in the party claimed they were at the house for a “music video shoot.”
The cop says Soulja eventually returned to the home to retrieve his Range Rover — and that’s when he was arrested for obstruction of justice … a misdemeanor.
Soulja Boy, real name Deandre Cortez Way, was taken to jail and released.
