Rapper 2 Chainz

Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested for obstructing a police officer in Oklahoma City. The Atlanta rapper was taken into custody early Thursday morning after a nine-hour standoff with police. 2 Chainz had just performed in concert with rappers T.I. and Lil Wayne hours earlier.

UK’s Daily Mail reports that the rapper’s tour bus was pulled over when officers observed a broken tail light. After pulling the bus over, police detected the pungent aroma of marijuana in the air and attempted to board the bus, but the occupants locked the bus and prevented the police from boarding.

When the bus occupants refused to exit the bus, the vehicle was towed — occupants and all — to a nearby police training facility.
