2 Chainz had quite an eventful Valentine's Day!
On Thursday, the rapper's vehicle was pulled over for speeding and the hip-hop star was arrested for possession of marijuana in Maryland. Sgt. Marc Black, a spokesman for the Maryland State Police, told E! News that a van carrying 2 Chainz (real name: Tauheed Epps) was first stopped for going 79 in a 55 mile-per-hour zone. "Upon approaching the van, an odor of marijuana was smelled coming from the vehicle," Black explained. "A probable cause search was executed and a backpack was found with a grinder and trace evidence of marijuana."
From there, the rapper "took ownership for the backpack and was arrested," said Black. "There were seven other people in the car, but he was the only one arrested."He was then transported and released with a criminal citation. He had two charges: Possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. According to the police, 2 Chainz was "cooperative."
So cooperative, in fact, the rapper took pictures with the cops. "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh," he wrote, linking to a hilarious Instagram photo."We to jail for a grinder???" he quipped. "REALLY???" Really. But for 2 Chainz, the show must go on. The rapper went on to perform for an excited crowd Thursday night.
