Rapper Soulja Boy was arrested on drug and weapons charges on Tuesday after a traffic stop in Georgia, police said.

The 21-year-old entertainer, whose given name is DeAndre Cortez Way, and four crew members traveling in a Cadillac Escalade were pulled over in Temple, Georgia on Interstate 20 near the Alabama line, police spokeswoman Dana Rampy said.

Police discovered marijuana, pistols and cash inside the car after a “routine traffic stop,” Rampy said. She declined to disclose the amount of marijuana or money.

The rapper, three bodyguards and a driver each were arrested on felony charges of possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of a firearm, Rampy said.

All five men were booked into the Carroll County jail.

A puppy found in the car has been turned over to relatives of the driver, Rampy said.
