Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested for marijuana possession in Maryland Thursday. The rapper later posted a picture of him with the cops, who he claims wanted a picture with him.
WBOC reports that 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was stopped by Maryland State Police in Easton around 10:50 p.m. last night. Even though seven people were in the car, the Grammy-nominated rapper was the only one they arrested.

On Instagram, he posted a photo with two officers, writing, “Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh.”
TMZ later contacted the police department, who wouldn’t say who took the photo. “We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time,” a state police rep said.
2 Chainz was in the area to perform at University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s homecoming event.
