The “Tell ‘Em” rapper was already on probation at the time of his arrest back in Dec. The police were called after Soulja had been threatening people online with gun violence, according to TMZ. When the cops arrived, they searched the residence and that was when they discovered the guns. “A firearm was recovered at the location of the arrest, violating the terms and condition of his probation. He was arrested in 3200 Block of Los Palos Drive in North Hollywood,” officer Liliana Preciado from the LAPD told HollywoodLife.com.
