Waka Flocka Surrenders to Police

Published January 5, 2011

Roughly two weeks after police raided his Atlanta home, Waka Flocka Flame turned himself in to authorities on gun, drug and gang-related charges.

According to the Henry County Sheriff's Department, Waka is in custody for possessing less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of hydrocodone, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, probation violation for driving with a suspended license and violating Georgia's "Criminal Street Gang and Terror Prevention Act."

As previously reported, Waka denied any gang ties during a recent interview at 93.7 radio station in Connecticut.

"I'm a rapper, I'm not a gangbanger," he added. "How can you gang bang and be a rapper? I don't understand. I would love to find out where their information is coming from."

Waka's mother, Debra Antney, says her son turned himself in "because he wanted to do the right thing and didn't want to run."
