Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested Thursday on suspicion of drug possession in Maryland, where he was supposed to perform a college event.
The 35-year-old, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was pulled over for allegedly going 79 mph in a 55 mph zone in Easton, Md., when cops reportedly smelled marijuana in the van. Police found a marijuana grinder and traces of marijuana in a backpack he said he owned and arrested him, the Baltimore Sun reported.
The "I'm Different" rapper was cited for allegedly having drug paraphernalia and marijuana and was released, but not before he posed for a photo with Maryland policemen. He was the only person taken into custody, TMZ said.
He could face up a year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, according to the Associated Press.
The Grammy Award nominee posted a photo of himself flanked by two cops posing for the snapshot after the alleged incident on his Instagram page.
