2 Chainz busted in Oklahoma City – next up Sac

2chainzOKLAHOMA CITY, OK – 2 Chainz is in trouble again after police pull over his bus in Oklahoma and smell marijuana.

According to an affidavit filed on Monday, an Oklahoma City police officer pulled over 2 Chainz’s tour bus on Thursday after noticing the passenger side taillights were not functioning on Interstate 40.

When the driver of the bus, Sedric A. Brooks opened the door to the bus the officer, “smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana,” and he could see smoke circulating inside the bus around the door.

Brooks was told to get back on the bus and as he boarded he quickly closed the door and told officers he was not authorized to let them in.

Passenger Abdullah Mujahid, shook his head “no” after he was ordered off the bus and actually pointed to a small copy of the U.S. Constitution.

All the passengers refused to get off the bus, so police towed it to a training facility that was close by. After nine hours officers were able to obtain a search warrant, at which time everyone vacated the bus.

Tauheed Epps, better known as 2 Chainz, along with ten others were arrested for obstructing a police officer. All were released after paying $2,000 bail. Officers found narcotics on the bus and may be filing more charges against the occupants.

The 35-year-old rapper had performed with Lil Wayne and T.I. in Oklahoma City the night before.

But wait! It doesn’t stop there.

According to TMZ  there was even more drama on one of the tour buses in Lil Wayne’s posse.

A female fan said she was invited on board one of the buses after their show in OKC, when a member of the entourage punched her in the face, breaking her jaw.

The victim says her jaw was broken in two places, requiring surgery. Her jaw is wired shut and she’s now on a liquid diet for six weeks to give it time to heal.

According to the woman, an unidentified entourage member who had been hitting on her during the concert invited her onto one of Lil Wayne’s tour buses. That’s when he reached under her shirt and grabbed her breast. She slapped his hand away and that’s when he went Mike Tyson on her, punching her in the face.

In San Francisco, 2 Chainz was mugged in front of a marijuana dispensary store and then a couple of days later was pulled off a plane and arrested at LAX after officials discovered marijuana and promethazine in his luggage.

Promethazine is the key ingredient used for making ‘sizzurp’ a dangerously potent drug popularized in the southern rap scene.

Lil Wayne and his crew, including 2 Chainz, will be performing tonight at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento.

Let’s see what kind of trouble they can get into in Sacramento.

2 Chainz pulled off plane arrested at LAX

2chainzRapper Tauheed Epps, better known as 2 Chainz, was arrested Tuesday at LAX on drug related charges.

According to multiple sources, including Rolling Stone magazine, the 35-year-old rapper was taken off of a flight he boarded, after TSA discovered marijuana and promethazine in his checked baggage.

Promethazine is the key ingredient used for making ‘sizzurp’ a dangerously potent drug popularized in the southern rap scene.

Just a couple of days ago, Epps was on the other side of the law when him and his posse were robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco.

The location of the robbery just happened to be in front of a marijuana dispensary.

Last February Epps was busted when police found marijuana on his tour bus, but was found not guilty of those charges.

We believe the Atlanta based rapper will be glad to put the sunshine state behind him.

Teachers gone wild

As communities across the country debate armed officers in our schools to protect our children, there have been a spate of incidents in the Sacramento area and beyond of teachers and school employees committing crimes against students.

The most recent incident occurred Sunday at a Georgia middle school, where a teacher has been arrested in connection to a student’s death, this according to WSBTV.

Emily Smith, a 37-year-old sixth grade math teacher at Barrow County middle school, was arrested for arranging a drug deal for the teenage girl. The girl died the day after purchasing the drugs.

According to authorities, text messages and phone calls provide proof that Smith helped facilitate the drug deal that consisted of Methadone and Xanax.

While the cause of death is still unknown, Barrow County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Faye Spaulding said, “The toxicology report determined there were high levels of a controlled substance in her system.”

Just this month there has been a number of reports of teachers gone wild, including:

  • A Rocklin Middle School teacher who according to Fox40 was arrested after an investigation revealed that he provided marijuana and alcohol to a student at the teacher’s home.
  • The Washington Post reports that a Washington D.C. high school science teacher was arrested Friday afternoon on charges of child pornography.
  • According to the Orlando Sentinel a Marion County school employee was arrested for sending nude photos of herself to students.
  • Tennessee’s television station WATE reports that a Loudon County school teacher was arrested on felony charges stemming from inappropriate Facebook messages being sent to students.

These types of incidents may be contributing to the large number of parents who are pulling their kids out of schools across the nation in favor of homeschooling. According to the National Home Education Research Institute there are over 2 million students being homeschooled.
