2 Chainz - 2 Chainz Acquitted On Drug Posession Charge, Thanks To Security Guard's Testimony

Today saw rapper 2 Chainz acquitted of the drug charge he was served in Maryland way back in February. The rapper (real name Tauheed Epps) was heading to a college homecoming event, according to CBS news, when he got pulled over at the most inconvenient of times. Upon suspecting him of smoking weed, the police searched the rapper’s vehicle and found a marijuana grinder and actual marijuana inside a backpack. So that’s what that smell was! 2 Chainz was subsequently charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and marijuana. Seems only fair, doesn’t it?

But, after the case dragged for two months, the verdict is finally in - “not guilty”. The reason for the acquittal? 2 Chainz’ bodyguard testified that in a rush to leave the hotel room, he had packed the grinder, but he didn’t know whom it had belonged to. It wasn’t Epps’ though, that’s for sure. Looks like that story was believable enough for the judge and 2 Chaiz got a full acquittal, reports the Star Democrat of Easton, Md. This news comes on the heels of a similar story, involving Justin Bieber. But the Biebs didn’t even get charged, due to a lucky happenstance for him. All in all, the day was obviously a success for *ahem* non-pot smokers everywhere.
