A well-known rapper has been acquitted of drug charges after he was pulled over while travelling to a gig on the Eastern Shore.
Rapper 2 Chainz only needed one alibi to be acquitted of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession in Talbot County. He said the pot wasn't his.
A district court judge found the Atlanta based rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, not guilty on Wednesday, clearing him of charges stemming from a February traffic stop where the van Epps was travelling in was pulled over and then searched because it reeked of marijuana.
The search found marijuana and a grinder inside a backpack, but one of the rapper's security guards testified in court that he had packed the grinder not knowing whom it belonged to, as they were in a rush to leave their Baltimore hotel room.
The rapper's arrest also caused a bit of controversy because of a picture that circulated on the Internet of the arresting officers smiling and posing with the three-time Grammy nominated rapper.
