OKLAHOMA CITY -

Rapper 2 Chainz has been charged with a misdemeanor following his August run-in with Oklahoma City police.

Prosecutors have charged the rapper, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, with obstructing an officer. In August, police pulled over Epps' tour bus on Interstate 40 for having a defective taillight.

Epps and several other people on board refused to get off the bus, leading to a nine-hour showdown with police.

If convicted of the misdemeanor, Epps could be sentenced to up to a year in jail and fined $1,000.
