Rapper Juelz Santana of the Diplomats aka LaRon James arrested for terroristic threats.
Law enforcement sources wouldn’t specify what constituted the threats, but they tell us, Juelz — real name LaRon James — was also booked for disorderly conduct. According to law enforcement, the rapper refused to let officers search his vehicle, which was later impounded by cops. Juelz was released hours later on $46,500 bail. Calls to his reps were not returned. (TMZ)
Santana has said his arrest was based on refusing to cooperate with police.

“No stranger to law enforcement, Santana was arrested last February on drug and weapons charges.
Authorities today dropped additional charges on rapper/producer Juelz Santana in connection with two fully-loaded 9mm handguns, several boxes of ammunition, and 17 dime bags of pot they said they found while arresting freestyle rapper Toby M. “Hynief” Raynor last month. (Cliffview Pilot)
Months later, Santana came forward to speak on the drug raid.
“My name is the biggest so of course they are going to target me as the one to put a lot of the blame on,” the Harlem MC said. “I had no clue on what’s going on, I rent the studio out to people. That’s like if I rent the studio out right now to somebody and they choose to bring whoever they want to bring in to the studio. They rented the studio out; I have no knowledge of what’s going on until I come back and your [rental] time is finished.” (Rapfix)
