Soulja Boy’s Bentley was recently impounded by the LAPD thanks to photos that appear to implicate him (or at least the car) in a serious hit-and-run.

Back on January 9, a motorcyclist struck a red Bentley in Hollywood, leaving the biker seriously injured. The Bentley’s driver fled the scene, however.

It is believed that its driver made a reckless turn that caused the crash. In any case, a friend of the biker went back to the scene to look around.

That’s when he met a valet at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles who said that he knew the car well, and that it belonged to Soulja Boy.


The witness then went to the police, who tapped into their secret database of photos taken by thousands of hidden cameras every day (seriously).

In fact, TMZ reports there are private companies that exist solely to convince L.A. citizens and businesses to mount cameras for the database.

The average L.A. car, supposedly, is photographed 1,000 times. A day.

Back to the topic at hand, police easily got the license plate number of Soulja Boy’s Bentley, ran it through the database and the plot thickened.

The crash itself was not captured on video, but images of the Bentley showing damage that corresponded to the accident did show up in photos.

Soulja Boy’s Bentley is currently damage-free, and police believe the rapper had the car repaired on the DL to cover up any incriminating evidence.

Police got a warrant, believing they had probable cause to believe the Bentley was involved in the accident, and have since impounded the car.

Police would still like more evidence, but it’s amazing the kinds of things they can pull from cameras you didn’t even know were filming your every move.

Cue ominous, dramatic music.
