2 Chainz was arrested for a misdemeanor possession of a criminal weapon, but it turns out the 'criminal weapon' was just a four-finger ring. After being released he spoke on what happened.

2 Chainz had the internet hash-tagging "Free 2 Chainz" when he was arrested at the airport yesterday for carrying what TSA agents thought were brass knuckles, but was actually jewelry.

After the rapper formerly known as Tity Boi was released, he spoke to MTV News about the incident."They tried to assassinate my character, they tried to assassinate my swag," 2 Chainz said. "It was just a negative dilemma earlier where someone misconstrued a piece of jewelry for a weapon and stuff."

2 Chainz continued, "Yeah, they took it from me, they took the Louis [Vuitton] case that I actually keep the jewelry in, they took that. I couldn't believe it," he said. "Me just trying to explain it was getting too frustrating, me just trying to explain my occupation and then when they finally got to the jail and everybody knew who I was, then they started calling their kids and putting me on the phone with their kids. It was like a weird experience."
