Authorities say hip-hop star Soulja Boy is facing a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in the west Georgia town of Temple.

Temple police chief Tim Shaw said that police stopped the rented Cadillac Escalade on Interstate 20 on Tuesday morning because a light was not working. He said officers found marijuana inside.

The artist, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, was booked into the Carroll County Jail on charges of marijuana and firearms possession.

He was subsequently released on a 10,000 US dollar (£6,350) bond.

Shaw said that based on what he knows of the arrest, all five occupants of the car were very cordial.

Carroll County officials say Way was represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
