(CelebNMusic247-News2 Chainz Apologizes To OKC Fans:

Rapper 2 Chainz calls his experience with Oklahoma City police frustrating because it caused a delay in his scheduled appearances last month.

While speaking with MTV News Tity Boi aka 2 Chainz apologized to Oklahoma City and his fans during an interview on MTV News.

It all happened just before midnight on August 21, when police spotted a defective taillight on the bus carrying 2 Chainz and his entourage following a concert at the Chesapeake Arena. Officers stopped the bus near Meridian, but were not allowed on the bus. Instead, the group asked to see search warrant.

The bus was towed to police training facility, with everyone still on board, while officers obtained a warrant to search the bus. According to court papers, police found marijuana residue, smoking pipes, rolling papers and scales. They also discovered the prescription pills Hydrocodone and Flexeril as well as two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge shotgun, along with ammunition for the weapons.

Police arrested everyone on the bus for obstruction, including rapper 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps. The all bonded out of jail the same day.

In the MTV interview, 2 Chainz says he lives by the book and he didn’t know that asking the police to get a search warrant would result in obstruction charges.

2 Chainz called the experience a waste of time and taxpayers’ money.

More details have emerged from 2 Chainz Oklahoma City arrest following the release of a police affidavit where he expresses disappointment in his drug dealing past!

The arrest took place last week but details in the arrest of 2 Chainz are beginning to surface thanks to the release of a police affidavit filed on Monday (August 26).

According to Yahoo News, the affidavit states that the police officer involved first “smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana” when the door to the tour bus was opened by the vehicle’s driver, Sedric A. Brooks. The officer then witnessed what he says was “smoke inside the bus around the door.”

To recap:

Following the Oklahoma City officer’s observations, he then attempted to board the bus, but was unable to after Brooks’ “quickly” closed the door.

One passenger onboard 2 Chainz’ tour bus then presented a miniature copy of the U.S. Constitution when asked by authorities to get off the bus.

Due to the unwillingness of the passenger’s to get off the vehicle, it was then towed to a police training facility. At this point, those on the bus were forced to evacuate due to a search warrant.

2 Chainz and the others on the bus were then arrested and charged with obstructing a police officer.

The entire incident took place on the morning of August 22 shortly after the “Feds Watching” rapper took part in Lil Wayne & T.I.’s America’s Most Wanted Tour.

Although 2 Chainz may have found himself in quite the legal debacle due to the tour bus incident, the rapper was still present at the Atlanta album listening party for B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time this week. 2 Chainz may have been in high spirits during his listening party, but during an interview taped shortly after, the Southside emcee seemed regretful as he reminisced on his days selling drugs.

2 Chainz explians to Nitecap With Peter Bailey:

“When you on the block or when you trying to feed your family, in the case that we were doing, you don’t realize how ill it is.”

“How wrong it is. You know what I mean? I remember, when we used to start thinking ‘Crack is wack. We need to stop.’ I remember when it finally hit us, but I remember—like today, just before my listening party I had a bunch of my friends over from the past and we just reminisced about when we did this. Like it don’t seem real.”
