2 Chainz Entourage Member Flashed Copy of Constitution During Arrest

It didn't help...
Here's a creative why to try and avoid arrest; keep a copy of the United States Constitution on hand and wave it around when the cops show up. Problem is, it doesn't work. TMZ reports that a member of 2 Chainz's entourage tried that exact tactic when the rapper's bus was stopped by the cops last week on suspicion of drugs.
As you may recall, the incident took place on Friday while Chainz was on his bus heading out of Oklahoma City. Police saw signs of drug use and pulled the bus over, but the driver refused to let the police on board. The affidavit that has been released shows that one of the passengers on the bus held a copy of the Constitution against the bus window "as if challenging officers" to violate his rights.
The problem is, there was no rights violation. Police smelled pot and saw smoke inside, which gave them probably cause. The incident ended with Chainz and everyone else being arrested after the bus was towed to the police lot.
