2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, was arrested Thursday (Feb. 14) during a traffic stop on his way to perform at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s homecoming event, reports WBOC.

Troopers say they pulled over a white van around 10:15 p.m. local time. There were seven passengers in the van, but only Epps was arrested. He was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and later was released with a citation.

After being arrested, 2 Chainz tweeted about the incident, “Locked me up and then wanted pictures smh” and posted the above photo to Instagram. A spokesman for the state police tells the Baltimore Sun the photo-taking incident is being reviewed.

Epps also tweets that the marijuana wasn’t his but belonged to a member of his entourage.

“We to jail for a grinder??? REALLY???” and “I work hard and pray even harder , we gone always b good yall…. Not to mention my security said it was his and they said , he don’t smoke ,, how da f*** u know? Haha wut a valentines day!!!”
