2 Chainz arrested for carrying brass knuckles in carry-on (Video)

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Rapper Tauheed Epps, better known as 2 Chainz, was arrested today after brass knuckles were found in his carry-on baggage.

MTV News reports that 2 Chainz was attempting to make his Delta Airlines flight from New York City’s LaGuardia Airport to join co-rapper Drake on his Club Paradise Tour in North Carolina, when the incident took place.

At the time, the police informed MTV News, "The knuckles were in his personal bag and sounded the alarm."

Police took 2 Chainz into custody before making his flight and he is currently in custody for “misdemeanor possession of a weapon in the 4th degree” and will be transported to Queens County Central, pending charges.

2 Chainz was traveling with DJ Drama and Big Sean, who took to Twitter to address the arrest. Big Sean tweets, “2 chainz ain't have no brass knuckles, it was a 4 finger ring that spelled hood. We had a shoot yesturday n he was rockin em.” The pair also started the #Free2Chainz hashtag.

Currently, his rep says that his team is “handling the situation.”

2 Chainz is known for his outrageous jewelry, so it isn’t hard to believe the tweet that Big Sean sent out. Check out his latest interview with MTV News, where the rapper talks jewelry, below:
