Tauheed Epps aka 2 Chainz posed for the mugshot above after he was arrested in Oklahoma yesterday (August 22, 2013).
And while he (kinda) came out out top in that Cali situation, the odds were against him in Oklahoma City after authorities pulled over the MC’s tour bus late Wednesday afternoon.
2Chainz had just performed Wednesday night with Lil Wayne and T.I. at a concert at Chesapeake Energy Arena and just after midnight, police pulled over the tour bus at Interstate 40 and Meridian for a broken taillight.
According to TMZ, police said they noticed signs of drug use when they approached the vehicle.
A standoff occurred when officers attempted to board the bus, but the driver locked them out and told them they had to get a warrant first. 2Chainz and his crew refused to exit the vehicle for over 9 hours.
Several hours later, the people on board the bus who initially refused to open the doors were taken off the vehicle and arrested.
Police towed the bus to a police training center, where they presented a search warrant. The police arrested 11 passengers, including 2 Chainz, and took them to the Oklahoma County Jail for “interfering with police process,” a state misdemeanor charge of obstruction.
No word yet regarding whether the suspects will face additional charges, or if police did in fact find drugs on the bus. (source)
Just a few months ago 2 Chainz ran into trouble with the law in LAX, where he was arrested for posession of marijuana and promethazine (just two days after being robbed at gunpoint, no less).
Back in February, Epps beat a marijuana posession charge in Maryland because of confusion over who the weed belonged to.
Makes me wonder, how many times will 2Chainz get arrested this year? Hmmmmm? We’ve still got 4 more months… stay tuned.
What do you think of 2Chainz recent brush with the law?
(Is he a target of the hip-hop police?)
