Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested at LaGuardia airport when TSA officials found that he was reportedly carrying brass knuckles in his carry-on luggage. He had no issue when flying to New York City, but when he wanted to leave the city at LaGuardia, officials questioned the item in his luggage.
He was arrested for having the supposed weapon in his luggage, but it was only because the TSA officials at the airport mistook the item in question. He was arrested for possession of a criminal weapon Tuesday afternoon. The officer told “MTV News”, “The knuckles were in his personal bag and sounded the alarm.”
As it turns out, they weren’t actually brass knuckles, but was a four-finger ring with the word “DOPE” on it in big lettering. His tour-mate Big Sean took to his official Twitter account to talk about the bust. He tweeted, “2 chainz ain’t have no brass knuckles, it was a 4 finger ring that spelled hood. We had a shoot yesturday n he was rockin em.”
