Soulja Boy arrested for concealed weapon charge

By Kyle Johnson,

Soulja Boy, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, was arrested on concealed weapon charges on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

TMZ reports that law enforcement sources say that Soulja Boy was the passenger in a car that ran a stop sign. When police pulled the car over, they noticed that the 23-year-old rapper had a loaded gun in his possession.

He was arrested after the gun discovery and hauled off to jail, according to the Daily Mail. The 23-year-old rapper's bail was set at $35,000.

This isn't the first time that Soulja Boy has gotten into trouble for having a gun. In October 2011, he was searched during a traffic stop and in addition to cops finding a gun on him, the car was found to contain a "substantial amount" of marijuana.

This past August, American Airlines flight attendants claimed that the rapper was being rude and disruptive, so he was kicked off the flight. He apologized quickly, saying, "It was a bad night and me and the flight staff didn't see eye to eye."

The rapper also was arrested on misdemeanor obstruction charges in 2009 after police told him to stop filming a video in an empty home and then they had to chase him down.
