Maryland State Police are investigating whether two police officers posed for photos with 2 Chainz after he was arrested on drug charges.

A Maryland State Police spokesman says troopers stopped a van Thursday night for speeding near Easton and smelled marijuana. Police say a backpack in the van contained a marijuana grinder and traces of marijuana, and 2 Chainz told them it was his.

He was cited for having drug paraphernalia and marijuana and was released.

Later, 2 Chainz tweeted a photo of him posing with two police officers. Maryland State Police could not confirm the photo's authenticity but is looking into it.
