OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)
Rapper 2 Chainz was among 11 people arrested after they failed to exit a tour bus following a traffic stop in Oklahoma City early Thursday morning, police said.
2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was arrested Thursday morning along with 10 other people on a charge of obstructing a police officer, said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.
Wardlow said the tour bus was stopped around midnight near Interstate 40 because of an illegal taillight. Police noticed drug use when the bus was stopped and the driver was arrested.
"But as he got off the bus, the interior door shut and locked and obviously our officers could not get in there," she said.
The remaining people on the bus refused to get off, so officers towed the bus to a nearby training facility about four miles away, Wardlow said.
Investigators obtained a warrant and all the people came off the bus around 9 a.m., Wardlow said. Eleven people were arrested on the obstruction charge and booked into Oklahoma County Jail on Thursday afternoon.
2 Chainz, 35, performed in Oklahoma City on Wednesday with Lil Wayne and T.I. His 2012 debut album topped the Billboard charts.
Earlier this year, the Atlanta-based rapper was acquitted of drug charges he faced after a traffic stop on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
