More Hip-Hop/R&B News
Last month, 2 Chainz was arrested following an eight-hour tour bus standoff after his concert on Aug. 21. 2 Chainz had a show earlier that night at Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Center as part of Lil Wayne‘s America’s Most Wanted Tour with T.I. and Future, neither of which were on the bus.
Radio.com spoke with Oklahoma City Police Department Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow who confirmed that narcotics were found on the bus. Upon further investigation, The Oklahoman reports that Oklahoma City police found weapons including two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge shotgun as well as painkillers and marijuana residue on 2 Chainz’s tour bus.
“The search warrant return shows police discovered two .40-caliber semi-automatic pistols along with a partial box of ammunition for the handguns. Twenty shells for the 12-gauge shotgun also were seized,” The Oklahoman writes.
Additionally, police discovered the prescription medications hydrocodone and Flexeril and marijuana residue with metal grinders and smoking papers with marijuana residue.
“We stopped the bus about midnight and it was near I-40 and Meridian,” Oklahoma City Police Department Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow told Radio.com while the investigation was still underway. “The reason for traffic stop was it looks like there was a broken taillight. When officers went up to the bus and made contact with the driver, there was evidence of drug usage going on the bus. The driver was taken into custody without any problem. When he got out and shut the door, it locked so the officers couldn’t get into the tour bus.”
2 Chainz and 10 others were arrested and charged for Obstruction of a Public Officer and released after paying $2,000 each in bail.
