TMZ is reporting that 2 Chainz (real name Tauheed Epps) was arrested today at 1:45 PM EST.  2 Chainz was taken into custody for misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon at a Delta terminal when trying to fly to North Carolina for a show.  2 Chainz was taken into custody because brass knuckles were found in his luggage.  At least that’s the reason he was taken into custody but sources close to 2 Chainz are saying it was one of his fancy four fingered rings, not brass knuckles found in his luggage.  2 Chainz will most likely be released later today.

Update: Big Sean Tweeted about the situation saying 2 Chainz did not have brass knuckles. He says it was a four fingered ring that spelled “Hood”.
