2 Chainz Arrested For Drug Possession!
Rapper 2 Chainz was sentenced to three years probation and over a year in drug and alcohol treatment. Wait, there’s more! 2 Chainz will be required to wear a sobriety bracelet. Unfortunately, the court was all out of sobriety chains.
The sentence came after the thirty-six year old rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, was arrested in June of 2013 at the Los Angeles International Airport.
So, What Happened?
Narcotics were uncovered in 2 Chainz’ checked baggage. Authorities immediately evacuated him from the plane and placed him in custody. “At more or less 1 p.m., Airport Police Officers found narcotics in the baggage check area of Terminal 5,” read a report from airport security.
“Transportation Security Administration prompted Airport Police officers they discovered marijuana and a flask of promethazine with codeine (also known by the street name of “purple drink or syrup) in the checked bag of Tauheed Epps (2 Chainz), an occupant of Riverdale, Georgia,” claimed authorities.
“Airport Police Officers examination uncovered Mr. Epps was ready for outbound flight, he was uprooted from the flight and arrested due to California Penal Code Section 11350a H & S – Possession of a controlled substance. Mr. Epps was transported to the Airport Police station for preparatory transforming and transported to and booked at the LAPD Pacific Division Jail without further occurrence,” claimed authorities.
The narcotics uncovered turned out to be Promethazine. Promethazine, along with codeine, makes up the drug known as “sizzurp” and “purple drank.” Less than an ounce of marijuana was also found in the rapper’s belonging.
Now, 2 Chainz would normally be sentenced to jail, not probation and treatment. His decreased sentence came from Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz. The honorably Mr. Schwartz is known for implementing treatment resources, rather than strict jail sentences.
