Rapper 2 Chainz Acquitted Of Drug Charge

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Rapper 2 Chainz has been acquitted of drug charges he faced after a traffic stop on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Officials say a Talbot County district court judge found the rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, not guilty Wednesday.

The Atlanta-based rapper was headed to a college homecoming event in February when state troopers stopped the van he was traveling in. Police said they searched the car after smelling burnt marijuana and found a marijuana grinder and marijuana inside a backpack.

2 Chainz was cited for having drug paraphernalia and marijuana after police said he claimed the bag. A security guard testified that in the rush to leave the group’s Baltimore hotel room he had packed the grinder, though he didn’t know who owned it.
