Hip-hop star Soulja Boy proclaimed his innocence as he encountered dozens of screaming fans outside a bail bond company following his arrest on a drug charge in Georgia.
CBS Atlanta reports that the artist said "I'm innocent, man" during the chaotic scene on Tuesday as bodyguards rushed him into a waiting car.
Soulja Boy, also known as DeAndre Cortez Way, faces a drug charge after police stopped his rental car in the west Georgia town of Temple.
Temple Police Chief Tim Shaw said police stopped the Cadillac Escalade early on Tuesday because a light wasn't working. He said officers found marijuana inside.
The rapper was released on 10,000 dollars bond.
Carroll County officials say he was represented by attorney Kip Jones, who had no comment when contacted.
