ATF Investigates Soulja Boy Over Drug & Gun Allegations
Rapper Soulja Boy is under investigation by officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in relation to his drug and gun arrest in October.
The hitmaker, real name DeAndre Cortez Way, was taken into custody with four associates after their car was pulled over by police in Temple, Georgia for a traffic violation. Cops reportedly found more than five ounces of marijuana, thousands of dollars of cash and multiple guns in the vehicle.
Driver Gregory Latimore and the three other men were subsequently slapped with three counts for felony possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
The hip-hop star was not charged over the incident, but he could still find himself in trouble - the case has been handed over to ATF investigators.
Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw has confirmed to local media outlets that his officers have turned over all evidence involving the star to the officials.
