Oklahoma City police found weapons, painkillers on rapper's tour bus, court papers show

Two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge shotgun were discovered in a tour bus occupied by Tauheed Epps — better known as rapper 2 Chainz — and 10 other men during a traffic stop last month, according to a search warrant return filed in Oklahoma County District Court.

Officers said they pulled the bus over because the passenger side taillights were out. Police got to the door of the bus as driver Cedric Brooks, 31, was coming off the bus.

An affidavit filed earlier stated that Brooks shut the door and told officers he was not authorized to allow police on the bus. The officer said the marijuana smell gave him probable cause to search, but Brooks refused to open the door.

When backup officers arrived, police approached the door again and ordered a passenger sitting by the door, Abdullah Mujahid, 52, to open it. He shook his head “no” and held a copy of the U.S. Constitution up in the window, according to a court affidavit.

Police said they also made phone calls to those on the bus, ordering them to come out, but they refused. The bus was towed with the men still aboard to the police training center.

Officers obtained a search warrant and the men got off the bus. They were arrested.

Others arrested were: Rory Smith, 43; Jermaine Simister, 37; Stephen Boykin, 29; Jack Brown, 32; Marshall Sudderth, 26; Robert Jordan, 38; Leon Smith, 36; and Bryan Gathii, 28.
