2 Chainz Arrested In Maryland On Suspicion Of Drug Possession, Peep Out His Mugshot!! -- Photo Inside


2 Chainz Arrested In Maryland On Suspicion Of Drug Possession, Peep Out His Mugshot!! 2 Chainz was arrested Thursday on suspicion of drug possession in Maryland, where he was supposed to perform a college event. The 35-year-old, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was pulled over for allegedly going 79 mph in a 55 mph zone in Easton, Md., when cops reportedly smelled marijuana in the van.

 

Police found a marijuana grinder and traces of marijuana in a backpack he said he owned and arrested him, the Baltimore Sun reported.

 

The "I'm Different" rapper was cited for allegedly having drug paraphernalia and marijuana and was released, but not before he posed for a photo with Maryland policemen. He was the only person taken into custody, TMZ said.

 

He could face up a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, according to the Associated Press. The Grammy Award nominee posted a photo of himself flanked by two cops posing for the snapshot after the alleged incident on his Instagram page.

 

"Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh," he wrote. Adding, "We to jail for a grinder??? REALLY???"

 

He continued to tweet about the whole ordeal and still made it to his performance at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore's homecoming.

 

"I work hard and pray even harder , we gone always b good yall...." he wrote. "Not to mention my security said it was his and they said , he don't smoke ,, how ... u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!"

 

Sgt. Marc Black, a police spoksemsan, told the Baltimore Sun that there is "no specific policy, per se" about officers taking photos with people they arrest. "But we're looking at it administratively to see if anything should be pursued."

 

The rapper was also arrested at LaGuardia Airport last May and charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon when TSA agents found what they believed to be brass knuckles in his carry-on. His friend Big Sean said that they weren't brass knuckles but a "4 finger ring that spelled hood" that 2 Chainz had been wearing at a shoot the day before.

 

2 Chainz was nominated for best rap song, rap album and rap performance at Sunday's Grammys Awards.
