Rapper 2 Chainz arrested in Oklahoma City during tour bus standoff

It appears that rapper 2 Chainz has found himself in cuffs this afternoon in OKC.

According to TMZ, 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, and his crew were involved in a standoff with police in Oklahoma City in the early hours of the morning when officers pulled over a tour bus carrying the rapper for a busted tail light.

When officers approached the vehicle, they claim to have seen signs of drug use, and attempted to board the bus to investigate; however, the driver of the bus had other ideas. The bus driver then locked the officers out of the bus insisting that officers obtain a warrant before they boarded.

The cops then towed the bus to a nearby police training facility, with the passengers still inside, while officers awaited the warrant.

When the warrant arrived, police took 11 of the passengers inside, including 2 Chainz, for “interfering with the police process.”

Right now, it is unknown whether or not any of the passengers will be brought up on other charges, or if drugs were indeed found on the bus.

2 Chainz is currently a part of the America’s Most Wanted Tour with Lil’ Wayne and T.I.

According to TMZ, both Lil’ Wayne and T.I. were not present at the time of the incident. Both of them had already left the city on private jets.
