Oklahoma City police found weapons on 2 Chainz tour bus

Police in Oklahoma City discovered two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge pump shotgun along with some prescription painkillers and marijuana residue on a tour bus occupied by rapper 2 Chainz and 10 other men, according to documents filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court.

The men were arrested Aug. 22 after refusing to get off the bus following a traffic stop. The 35-year-old rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, had performed with Lil Wayne and T.I. in Oklahoma City the night before.

2 Chainz and the others were charged with obstructing a police officer, a misdemeanor. All were released after paying $2,000 bail.

The Oklahoman reports police who searched the bus found two .40-caliber semi-automatic pistols and a partial box of ammunition for them, according to the documents. Twenty shells for the 12-gauge shotgun also were seized.

Police found the prescription medications hydrocodone and Flexeril but without prescriptions, according to the search warrant return. Officers also reported discovering marijuana residue along with metal grinders and smoking papers with marijuana residue.

2 Chainz’s latest accessory: two cuffs.

It all started yesterday, when the rapper was on a tour bus that police pulled over in Oklahoma due to busted taillights. The cops “noticed signs of drug use,” according to TMZ’s report, and wanted to get on the bus to check it out, but the driver locked the doors and didn’t let up until the police obtained a warrant hours later. Once aboard, officers arrested 11 passengers — including 2 Chainz himself — for “interfering with the police process,” according to TMZ. No word yet whether any drugs were actually found or whether there would be additional charges.
