-- OK, This is getting RIDICULOUS ...

We asked the Maryland State Police WHO ASKED to take the photo ... and a rep for the cops told us, "We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time."

Ummm ... how hard would it be to ask the cops???

Interesting Point -- 2 Chainz posted the pic on HIS Twitter page ... meaning it was most likely taken by someone in 2 Chainz's camp ... which would mean the rapper probably initiated the shoot.

Oooooor ... the cops took the pic and sent it to 2 Chainz.

Something's fishy here ...

2 Chainz was arrested for marijuana possession in Maryland last night ... and the rapper is PISSED -- claiming cops were just "f*ckin" with him ... and then asked him for pictures. 

The guy behind the hits "Spend It" and "I'm Different" was busted around 10 PM in Easton last night after Maryland State Police pulled over a white van he was traveling in ... along with 6 other people.

But cops say 2 Chainz was in possession of weed -- so he was arrested. He was the only person in the van taken into custody.

2 Chainz was taken to a nearby station where he was booked, released and even took a picture with police ... but the rapper says he only took the shot because THE COPS asked him for it.

After the incident, 2 Chainz went on a Twitter rampage -- saying, "dam police f*ckn wit a n**ga."

He continued, "Locked me up and then Wanted pictures smh (shakin' my head)."

2 Chainz also claimed that he didn't exactly have a bag of weed on him at the time ... only a grinder (a device used to crush up weed so you can smoke it.)

We reached out to cops -- so far, no word back.

So, he's mad he was arrested for breaking the law and that then police asked for a photo? Simple solution for both problems, dude - just say 'no'.

2 chainz was in Maryland because he was performing at our homecoming at University if Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES). He was 2 hours late because of this arrest but when he showed up he was amazing! It was crazy in there! Thanks 2!

It's kind of surprising that the officers in the photo even knew who 2 Chainz was, as they definitely do not look like the type to be fans of his music

"um, excuse me, Mr. 2 Chains, but after I read you your Miranda rights and remove the handcuffs, can you autograph them for...um...my nephew?"

That photo should be glued to the front of each officer's personnel file.

Mr. G    

I have a few problems with this report. First of all, he is NO musician/rapper that deserves mentioning. Most have never heard of him. Secondly, weed is about as common today as drinking a glass of milk. Let's not imply this is heroin or something even worse. This is a prime example of amateur reporting that doesn't have much to say!

This is a stupid story. Unprofessional from a police standpoint. As far as the rapper goes, at least he wasn't fighting in a club, like others. Whatever.
