2 Chainz affidavit
A police affidavit says an Oklahoma City police officer who pulled over the tour bus of rapper 2 Chainz ‘‘smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana’’ when the driver opened the door. Eleven people including 2 Chainz were arrested Thursday after refusing to get off the bus for almost nine hours following a traffic stop. The affidavit says that a passenger on the bus, Abdullah Mujahid, shook his head ‘‘no’’ when ordered to get off the bus and held up a small copy of the US Constitution. 2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, and the others were charged with obstructing a police officer. All were released after paying $2,000 bail. Investigators say they found narcotics on the bus and that more charges could be filed later.

The young star later said that she’s protective of her friends. Gomez won best pop video for ‘‘Come & Get It’’ at the ceremony Sunday and said she didn’t expect to win.
