Artist Soulja Boy, who was set to perform at Rites of Spring on Saturday, April 13, was arrested today for violation of his probation. He is being held without bail until a hearing scheduled for April 30.

The artist cancelled a show at Kent State planned for tonight. The Hustler has reached out to Vanderbilt Programming Board’s Music Group for details about refunds and replacement performers.

According to TMZ, Soulja’s home was raided after one of his girlfriends alleged he kidnapped her. During the raid, the police found ammunition in his home, which is a violation of his probation for a weapon’s case from 2014.
