2 Chainz is becoming the new Snoop Dogg when it comes to getting arrested for marijuana. The rapper's third drug bust of the year took place on his tour bus in Oklahoma City just after midnight on Aug. 22.

Police pulled the bus over for a broken taillight at I-40 and Meridian. They claimed to smell and see pot smoke inside the bus. However, it became a tense standoff when the bus driver prevented the police from entering the bus. Nine hours later the bus was towed to a facility where the police obtained a search warrant.

They found paraphernalia (grinder, pipe, scale, papers), weapons (two pistols and a shotgun) and prescription meds (Vicodin and Flexeril), but no marijuana, on the bus.

A total of 11 people were charged with interfering with police, including 2 Chainz (nee Tauheed Epps). No drug or gun charges have been filed so far.

2 Chainz had played earlier that night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena with Lil Wayne and T.I. He was last seen nationally on the VMAs performing alongside Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.
