Soulja Boy Arrested For Allegedly Violating Probation

Rapper Soulja Boy has been arrested and remains behind bars. On Thursday, Soulja, 28, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom where a judge ruled that he had violated his probation related to weapon charges, TMZ reports.

In February, police carried out a raid at the “Crank That” rapper’s home to investigate a claim that Soulja had kidnapped and assaulted his girlfriend, according to the outlet.

While there, police allegedly found ammunition in Soulja’s house.

The judge says Soulja also violated his probation by allegedly trying to falsify evidence that would prove he completed mandatory community service he was sentenced, The Blast reports.

Soulja was initially arrested last month for parole violations stemming from the raid but released shortly after ahead of Thursday’s court date.

Following Thursday’s court hearing, Soulja was arrested and is currently being held without bail. He will remain in custody until his next hearing on April 30, according to The Blast.
