OKLAHOMA CITY -

The rapper known as 2 Chainz spent less than two hours at the Oklahoma County jail, after he and his entire entourage were booked in, accused of obstructing a public officer; all for refusing to let officers on board their tour bus.

2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, talked smack and flipped off cameras as he was leaving the Oklahoma County jail. He also tried to promote his upcoming album.

Bob Mills Sky News 9 HD was overhead at the OKC police training center, as police searched the contents of his tour bus. As it turns out police did find narcotics on board, but no word to whom they belong.

2 Chainz was in Oklahoma City because he was the opening act for the Lil' Wayne concert that took place Wednesday night at Chesapeake arena.

Police tell News 9 they actually pulled over the 2 Chainz tour bus along Interstate 40 and Meridian around midnight as they were leaving town, after an officer noticed a broken tail light. Police say when the driver got off the bus, he refused to allow the officer on board and even locked the doors.

Police say they did end up towing the tour bus and obtaining a search warrant to take a look at what was inside the bus. They also detained all 10 people who were on board, including 2 Chainz and the driver.

Police say all of them refused to get off of the tour bus or unlock the doors, but once the search warrant was obtained, they did. First they were led into a police van, then into the police training center, then back out to the police van again. And then one by one they were lead into the Oklahoma county jail to be booked in.

No word on whether 2 Chainz or his entourage have any plans to return. The obstructing an officer charge is a state charge, but it is only considered a misdemeanor.
