Soulja Boy Charged With Obstruction Of Justice
Rapper Soulja Boy is facing a charge of obstruction of justice after fleeing the set of his new music video when cops arrived.
The Crank That (Soulja Boy) hitmaker was shooting the promo at a Georgia house on Wednesday (07Oct09) with a cast and crew of 40 people - including fans he had invited to take part - when local authorities arrived at the scene to investigate complaints from residents.
According to police, half of the group fled by foot, including the 19-year-old rapper. Soulja Boy later returned to pick up his Range Rover and was arrested for the misdemeanour.
The rapper, real name DeAndre Ramone Way, was bonded out of the Henry County jail on Thursday (08Oct09); however police are still investigating persons related to the shoot.
According to TMZ.com, officers found a 9mm handgun in one of the cars in the driveway of the house but have not identified its owner.
Another man was arrested during the incident for forgery, amid suspicion he had counterfeited eight $100 (£67) bills.
