2 Chainz arrested at LAX for marijuana possession


2 Chainz is having an eventful week thus far. According to TMZ, after the authorities found marijuana in his possession, the Atlanta-based hip-hop star was arrested last night at LAX airport in Los Angeles.  It is being reported that 2 Chainz was caught with weed at terminal 5 in the airport. He was immediately taken into custody and booked for possession.

It was also later reported that 2 Chainz, born Tauheed Epps, had also been found with promethazine.

The incident occurs just a day after the San Francisco Police Department claimed that 2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint–although the rapper strongly denied the reports. While tweeting his denial of the robbery story, 2 Chainz referenced marijuana in San Francisco. “Rule# 3 we definitely got geeked up in San Fran , best smoke in the world. 2 blessed 2 stress,” he tweeted early on Tuesday (June 11th.)

2 Chainz was arrested in Maryland earlier this year and charged with marijuana possession after the state police pulled over a van carrying him and six other people. He was found not guilty of the charges back in April.
