Soulja Boy Arrested for Violating Probation

March 18, 2019

Soulja Boy was arrested on Friday morning for violating his probation. According to TMZ, Soulja was cuffed and taken to jail when he went to see his probation officer in the San Fernando Valley. He was released hours later pending a hearing on March 29, and immediately took to Instagram to rant about the arrest, saying, “I’m out!” The rapper, born DeAndre Way, has been on probation since being convicted in 2014 on charges for carrying a loaded firearm in public. Law enforcement searched his Los Angeles home on a warrant last month, following claims he was holding a woman against her will in his garage. Police found ammunition at the house, but didn't act on it until Friday.
