I don’t even know if it is worth getting into the details, from a legal standpoint, on this case. I wonder often why there is appears to be a higher rate of arrests and incarceration in hip-hop among our American artists. I know the factors that contribute to it but the foolishness is tiring, but not from a criminal defense perspective. How else will defense lawyers make money if people do not commit crimes?

Read an excerpt of the story below from the incident which occurred yesterday:

“1:35 PM PT — 2 Chainz has just been released from jail, and flipped everyone off in the process. Being the businessman he is, he also told everyone to buy his album.

12:37 PM PT — 2 Chainz just tweeted, “This sh*t will make u go crazy, our bus gets pulled 1 a week and they always say I smell weed I need to search ur bus. Sh* gets tiring”

12:30 PM PT — Law enforcement sources tell us, drugs WERE found on the bus … but they wouldn’t specify which, or how much.

Rapper 2 Chainz was on board the tour bus involved in a police standoff in Oklahoma last night … and he’s already been arrested in connection with the incident.

TMZ broke the story … 2 Chainz’ tour bus was pulled over in OKC around midnight after police noticed its taillights were out. When they approached the vehicle, cops say they noticed signs of drug use and attempted to board the bus.

But the bus driver locked the police out, insisting they obtain a warrant first.

Police did just that and eventually entered the bus hours later, where they arrested 11 passengers for “interfering with the police process,” including 2 Chainz.

It’s unclear if they face additional charges. . .”

TMZ has the full story.
