Soulja Boy was released on bail after his arrest on Tuesday, but he wants his fans to know that he’s not guilty. “I’m innocent, man. I love you all. I just want you all to know I’m innocent,” he told CBS Atlanta upon leaving Carroll County Jail. Soulja and four male passengers were pulled over early Tuesday morning in Temple, GA, after authorities noticed a broken taillight on their rented Cadillac Escalade. The group was found to be traveling with five ounces of marijuana, $46,000 in cash and a handgun.
The 21-year-old was released on a $10,000 bond Tuesday afternoon, and quickly thanked fans who came out to support him, while managing to squeeze in promotion for his new film Soulja Boy: The Movie on Twitter. “Goodnight. much love go cop soulja boy the movie everywhere now thanks for your prayers.” Of course, this tiny setback infringed upon the interview schedule for his latest project, so expect him to hit up any and all promotional appearances solely in cars that have passed their Vehicle Inspection Report from here on out. We’re sure he’s happy to be home, but the early exit from jail results in a missed opportunity for Soulja to lead his own “Crank That” prison flash-mob.
