Update: 2 Chainz Arrested, Caught With Sizzurp And Pot
HipHollywood has learned more details behind the LAX arrest of rapper, 2 Chainz.
Sgt. Nettles of the Los Angeles Airport Police tells HH that at 1 P.M. PST, officers responded to a narcotics investigation in the baggage check area of Terminal 5. TSA informed the airport police that they found marijuana and a bottle of promethazine with codeine (purple drink/syrup) in the checked bag of 2 Chainz.
Tauheed Epps, the rapper’s legal name, was on an outgoing flight, but was pulled off the plane by police and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
The rapper has since been released, but his legal troubles come on the heels of being robbed at gunpoint over the weekend. Needless to say, it’s been a tough week for the artist.
