Tauheed Epps, or 2 Chainz, as he's known in the world of rap music, was headlining a homecoming event at the University of Maryland's Eastern Shore campus on Thursday night when his van was pulled over on a routine traffic stop near Easton.

Maryland State Police found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, and took Epps into custody where he was cited and later released. But shortly after his arrest, the Grammy-nominated rapper posted a picture of himself posing with two smiling unidentified Maryland State police officers, tweeting, "first they lock me up, then they want my picture."

The picture has gone viral and earned the police officers quite a bit of scrutiny.

Maryland State Police say the matter is under investigation.
