Hip-hop star Soulja Boy proclaimed his innocence as he encountered dozens of screaming fans outside a bail bond company following his arrest on a drug charge in Georgia.
CBS Atlanta reports that the artist said, "I'm innocent, man" during the chaotic scene Tuesday as bodyguards rushed him into a waiting car.
Soulja Boy, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, faces a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in the west Georgia town of Temple on Interstate 20.
Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw said police stopped the Cadillac Escalade early Tuesday because a light wasn't working. He said officers found marijuana inside.
Way was booked into the Carroll County Jail on charges of marijuana and firearms possession. The rapper was released on $10,000 bond.
Shaw said that based on what he knows of the arrest, all five occupants of the car were very cordial.
Carroll County officials say Way is represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
