According to MTV, 2 Chainz was escorted off the airplane before he was arrested and charged with felony drug possession.

“At approximately 1 p.m., Airport Police Officers responded for a narcotics investigation in the baggage check area of Terminal 5,” a statement read. “Transportation Security Administration advised Airport Police officers they found marijuana and a bottle of promethazine with codeine (purple drink/syrup) in the checked bag of 35-year-old Tauheed Epps (2 Chainz), a resident of Riverdale, Georgia.

“Airport Police Officers investigation revealed Epps was on board an outbound flight, he was removed from the aircraft and arrested for California Penal Code Section 11350a H & S — Possession of a controlled substance. Epps was transported to the Airport Police station for preliminary processing and transported to and booked at the LAPD Pacific Division Jail without incident.”

2 Chainz is scheduled to appear before a judge next week.

Last year June, 2 Chainz had another running at the LAX when airport officials found sizzurp in his luggage.

    With all that money but still sipping cough medicine sizzurp to get high, whats the use of having all that money if you can’t use it wisely. Anyway, where is the logic and common sense in having weed and codeine in your luggage yet you know you are going through an airport and you are a celebrity.
