Soujla BoySoulja Boy Tell 'Em was arrested on Wednesday (October 7) in Atlanta, after he tried to flee from police when they were called to an abandoned house where he was shooting a music video.

According to Henry County Police, they received complaints about a group of kids hanging around a home in Stockbridge, 20 miles south of Atlanta, which appeared to be abandoned.

When they arrived, half of the 40 people who were filming there fled on foot, despite being ordered to stop by authorities -- one of them being Soulja Boy.

The rapper (real name: DeAndre Cortez Way) later returned to retrieve his car, but ran into police. He told them he and the group were shooting a video.

Soulja Boy was arrested and charged with obstruction for fleeing the scene. He was released on $550 bond on Thursday (October 8).

"He just ran from the police, and then he decided to come back," said Henry County, Georgia, police Capt. Jason Bolton.

A second man who returned for his vehicle was arrested after police found eight $100 counterfeit bills inside.
