2 Chainz and ten other men were arrested Thursday morning in Oklahoma City, after they refused a police search of their tour bus. The rapper's bus was originally pulled over for broken taillights, according to reports, and police then requested to search the bus for drugs, but were denied, which lead to a nine-hour standoff. The bus was towed and a warrant was later filed to search the bus, while the occupants were arrested due to the standoff.
