2 Chainz' Arrest Confirmed In Tour Bus Drug Bust

UPDATE: Oklahoma City Police Department personnel confirms that 2 Chainz was among the 10 people booked this morning, after drugs were discovered on a tour bus.

This morning (August 22), outside of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, a tour was stopped believed to be belonging to Def Jam Records star 2 Chainz. Local station NewsOn6.com reports that the driver of the tour bus was arrested after suspicion and search for drugs.

The Playaz Circle rapper was in town, as part of Lil Wayne & T.I.'s America's Most Wanted Tour on Wednesday night (August 21).

The report indicates that the bus' passengers initially refused to cooperate with police. "The bus doors were locked, however, and the passengers on board refused to open them. Police had the tour bus towed to the training facility at 850 North Portland until officers could obtain a warrant to search the bus," wrote NewsOn6.

Seven people cited for refusing police entry were reportedly detained.

In April of this year, the Atlanta, Georgia native was acquitted for a February drug arrest in Maryland.

2 Chainz is expected to perform, along with collaborators Drake and Kanye West, at this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards, which is taking place in Brooklyn, New York.

UPDATE: Radio.com reports that 2 Chainz was indeed involved in this morning's incident in Oklahoma City. The rapper, born Tauhed Epps, was among those booked—in a report that claims all 10 passengers were arrested.

Oklahoma City Police Department Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow told Radio.com that the stop was made at approximately midnight, due to a reported broken taillight. After stopping the vehicle, officers said that were made aware of drug use on board, but did not disclose how.

After the refusal to let police enter the vehicle, it took reportedly eight hours to tow the vehicle and obtain a warrants before the 10 supsects were booked.

Sergeant Wardlow confirmed the unvestigation is ongoing.

    I think 2 Chainz is underrated skill-wise. He's got some mega clever punchlines and usually keeps an interesting flow. If trap rap is really on the decline, I hope he survives. I dont got a lot of turn up shit myself at the moment but why dont ya check out my tune about not making up my mind. Its catchy and shit. https://soundcloud.com/theanchor/coulda-been

      his flow is some booty stank shit. some of his lines literally have ONE or two words in them! the fuck is that! I agree he has some good punchlines sometimes but that shit is wack, he's like an older autistic Lil Wayne with that flow how could an aspiring rapper ever come into the game with 2 Chainz's style, unless he got connects? nigga you'd get thrown out after your first four bars. foolishness

    "After stopping the vehicle, officers said that [they] were made aware of drug use on board, but did not disclose how." Convenient. Here's how it most likely went down; routine pull for the tail light, once they realised it was a Hip-Hop tour bus full of black people they decided to search it for drugs. They had absolutely no reason to do this (until we're told how "they became aware of drug use on board"), so until they disclose that information this can be treated as racial discrimination imo. And as a result, they were right to refuse entry! They either need to hurry up and disclose how they "became aware of drug use", or fuck off!

      why else would a bunch of niggas be on a tour bus?

    • M

      A judge signed a warrant so there was obviously probable cause. The judge doesn't know it's rappers on the bus idiot.

      "The funniest detail about this whole incident has to be that the cops towed the bus with everybody still inside while they waited on their warrant to arrive. Youve gotta applaud 2 Chainz and company for so adamantly resisting arrest defending themselves against illegal search and seizure."-Eskay, Nahright ^ he ain't the oracle, but he see it too

      true, but a broken tail light turns into an impounded vehicle & arrest warrants in 8 hours? What they find though? If they had weight it would've been described and photographed as evidence. And you KNOW they gonna throw out the broken tail light ticket. The real rap I can't prove is there's a strip over there where they stay stopping buses and vans. Yo Gotti & Snoop come to mind. Also movies like The Temptations and their bus adventures. It ain't adding up, probably were a couple of white guys in their truck with elbows on them looking as they drove by.

  • BRICKSLOCAL

    Just take a moment to imagine the amount of drugs smoked/drank/taken in the time they were pulled over, towed to the depot and then finally searched.
