Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested yesterday at the airport for possession of a criminal weapon. Well, it turns out 2 Chainz was just wearing a 4-finger ring. Man….
Rapper 2 Chainz wasn’t packing brass knuckles when he was arrested today in New York … it was just a harmless 4-finger ring — this according to sources close to the hip hop star.
The ring says “DOPE” in big letters — and sources tell TMZ, 2 Chainz rocked it no problem at an Atlanta club called the Velvet Room on Sunday.
According to sources close to the rapper, Chainz then flew to NYC without incident — with the ring in his luggage — but when he tried to leave the city today, TSA at LaGuardia Airport mistook the jewelry for a dangerous weapon.
2 Chainz is still in custody. The Port Authority PD had no comment.
The TSA can be so dramatic some times. If the ring wasn’t in the carry on, it shouldn’t have been a problem. And when were brass knuckles considered a criminal weapon? Goodness.
