DeAndre Cortez Way, the 21-year-old rapper known as Soulja Boy, was arrested early this morning for marijuana possession along with four other men after being pulled over in Temple, Georgia, for a traffic violation.

TMZ reports that police found  a “substantial amount of marijuana and cash” — possibly some $70,000 — inside the vehicle, as well as several firearms, though it is not currently clear whether the men had legal permits for the guns.

Soulja is currently being held at Carrol County Jail.
