Southern rapper Soulja Boy Tell Em has reportedly been sentenced to a year of probation for evading arrest last fall.

According to reports, the rapper was also given a fine he is required to pay.

SB ran from Henry County police after authorities raided a home in McDonough, Georgia where he was allegedly filming a video. His "A"zz took off running as an officer walked up to the house and was arrested when he came back moments later. He's now been sentenced in the case. No worries kiddies. SB won't have to spend time in the clink. His punishment for running like a punk? A year's probation and a $1,000 fine. Such a cheap price for street cred. (Straight From The A)

The incident took place last October in Georgia.
