Police smelled marijuana on 2 Chainz tour bus
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A police officer who pulled over the tour bus of rapper 2 Chainz "smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana" when the driver opened the door, a police affidavit says.
Eleven people, including 2 Chainz, were arrested on Thursday after refusing to get off the bus for about nine hours following the 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.
The affidavit, filed on Monday, says the officer pulled over the bus on Interstate 40 early Thursday morning because none of the rear taillights on the passenger side were working.
The officer smelled marijuana when the driver of the bus, identified as Sedric A. Brooks, opened the door, the affidavit says, and the officer "could actually see smoke inside the bus around the door."
