Soulja Boy’s ‘pretty boy swag’ landed him in jail on Tuesday, after US police discovered drugs and weapons in his rented SUV. The rapper was arrested and held on a 10,000 dollars bond following a traffic stop that found guns and marijuana, as well as a puppy, in his Cadillac Escalade.
The 21-year-old was on his way to Mississippi around 2:30 am on Tuesday, travelling through the town of Temple, Georgia. Police noticed one of his tail lights wasn’t working, according to reports.

Everyone in the SUV was “very cordial” – Temple police chief Tim Shaw told the Associated Press.

The puppy was eventually collected by the driver’s sister
