When I learned that 2 Chainz had been arrested for weed possession, it wasn’t exactly the shock of my life. The Grammy-nominated rapper was making his way through Maryland last night but has taken to Twitter in a fury over the behavior of the policemen who arrested him. 2 Chainz claims he was never actually, technically in possession of weed, and that the cops really just wanted to take a photo with him. And apparently, they did! I’m currently LMAO at this ridiculous pic of two of Maryland’s finest with 2 Chainz. Madness! Click inside for more!
So, this is basically 2 Chainz‘s mug shot:
TMZ has the story:
2 Chainz was arrested for marijuana possession in Maryland last night … and the rapper is PISSED — claiming cops were just “f*ckin” with him … and then asked him for pictures.
The guy behind the hits “Spend It” and “I’m Different” was busted around 10 PM in Easton last night after Maryland State Police pulled over a white van he was traveling in … along with 6 other people.
But cops say 2 Chainz was in possession of weed — so he was arrested. He was the only person in the van taken into custody.
2 Chainz was taken to a nearby station where he was booked, released and even took a picture with police … but the rapper says he only took the shot because THE COPS asked him for it.
After the incident, 2 Chainz went on a Twitter rampage — saying, “dam police f*ckn wit a n**ga.”
He continued, “Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh (shakin’ my head).”
2 Chainz also claimed that he didn’t exactly have a bag of weed on him at the time … only a grinder (a device used to crush up weed so you can smoke it.)
We reached out to cops — so far, no word back.
7:00 AM PT — OK, This is getting RIDICULOUS …
We asked the Maryland State Police WHO ASKED to take the photo … and a rep for the cops told us, “We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time.“
Ummm … how hard would it be to ask the cops???
Interesting Point – 2 Chainz posed the pic on HIS Twitter page … meaning it was most likely taken by someone in 2 Chainz’s camp … which would mean the rapper probably initiated the shoot.
Oooooor … the cops took the pic and sent it to 2 Chainz.
Something’s fishy here …
Yeah, no. These cops were definitely psyched for this photo opp. It just doesn’t sound like this arrest was really a big deal. Even 2 Chainz doesn’t appear to be too concerned; just mildly inconvenienced. What do y’all think? Should the cops receive some sort of punishment for this stunt, if they indeed were just trying to get a pic?
