Rapper 2 Chainz acquitted of Md. drug charge

EASTON, Md. -  

Rapper 2 Chainz has been acquitted of drug charges he faced after a traffic stop on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
 
The Star Democrat of Easton, Md., reports that a Talbot County district court judge found the rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, not guilty Wednesday.
 
The Atlanta-based rapper was headed to a college homecoming event in February when state troopers stopped the van he was traveling in.
 
Police said they searched the car after smelling burnt marijuana and found a marijuana grinder and marijuana inside a backpack.
 
2 Chainz was cited for having drug paraphernalia and marijuana after police said he claimed the bag.
 
A security guard testified that in the rush to leave the group's Baltimore hotel room he had packed the grinder, though he didn't know who owned it.
