Soulja Boy may have the money to purchase private jets and stunt all over Twitter with his diamonds draping his groin area, but that doesn’t mean he has enough to purchase a moral compass.
According to TMZ the not so struggling struggling rapper had his Bentley impounded after cameras caught him leaving the scene of a hit and run accident.
Our story begins on January 9, when a motorcyclist T-boned a red Bentley in Hollywood … leaving the biker seriously injured … but the driver of the Bentley — who caused the crash by making a reckless turn — fled the scene.
We’re told a witness — the victim’s friend — was so pissed off, he went back to the scene of the crime a few days later and nosed around, asking people if they knew who was driving the red Bentley. He struck gold at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles … when a valet told the guy he knew the car well … it belonged to Soulja Boy, who frequented the area.
The witness went to police with the info. Turns out, the cops have access to a super-database of photographs taken by thousands of hidden cameras stationed on police cars, buildings and private vehicles all over L.A.. There are private companies that make money off the City by getting citizens and businesses to mount cameras for the database.
The cops got the license plate number of Soulja Boy’s Bentley, ran it through the database and BINGO … a bunch of photos popped up showing the Bentley with damage that corresponded to the accident.
Soulja’s Bentley is currently damage-free. Law enforcement sources tell us the operating theory is that the rapper had the car repaired on the sly to cover up incriminating evidence.
