2 Chainz Off The Hook

A Maryland judge ruled April 24 that 2 Chainz is not guilty of pot and paraphernalia possession stemming from a traffic stop by state troopers Feb. 14.

Talbot County District Court Judge William H. Adkins III decided there was no evidence that tied 2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, to the contraband and cleared him.

Epps was scheduled for a concert at University of Maryland Eastern Shore prior to state troopers stopping the van he and six others were in for speeding near Eaton, Md.

Officers reportedly smelled burnt marijuana in the van and found a backpack with a marijuana grinder and a small amount of the herb.

Epps claimed the backpack was his, so he was arrested and cited before being released.

The rapper’s security guard testified that as the group was leaving a Baltimore hotel room to hit the road, he grabbed the grinder and threw it in the backpack but he didn’t know who it belonged to.
