OKLAHOMA CITY -

Newly-released court documents reveal Oklahoma City investigators discovered several weapons, painkillers, drug residue, and drug paraphernalia when they searched rapper 2 Chainz's tour bus following a nine-hour showdown with police.

Just before midnight on August 21, police spotted a defective taillight on the bus as it traveled westbound on Interstate 40. Officers stopped the bus near Meridian. Police say when the driver, 31-year-old Sedric Brooks, exited the bus he immediately locked the doors behind him.

According to an affidavit for a search warrant, officers say they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the bus. When they asked Brooks to open the doors, he refused. The occupants on board the bus also refused to open the doors, and insisted police obtain a search warrant before boarding the vehicle.

About 5:30 a.m., police had the bus towed to police training facility, with everyone still on board. Officers obtained a warrant a few hours later and searched the bus. They found marijuana residue, smoking pipes, rolling papers, and scales. They also discovered the prescription pills Hydrocodone and Flexeril. No one on the bus had prescriptions for those painkillers.

Police also found two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge shotgun on the bus, along with ammunition for the weapons.

Police arrested everyone on the bus, including rapper 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps. Epps had just performed at a concert in Chesapeake Energy Arena with rappers Lil Wayne and T.I.

Epps and 10 others were released on bond that same day.
