1:35 PM PT -- 2 Chainz has just been released from jail, and flipped everyone off in the process. Being the businessman he is, he also told everyone to buy his album.
12:37 PM PT -- 2 Chainz just tweeted, "This sh*t will make u go crazy, our bus gets pulled 1 a week and they always say I smell weed I need to search ur bus. Sh* gets tiring"
12:30 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us, drugs WERE found on the bus ... but they wouldn't specify which, or how much.
Rapper 2 Chainz was on board the tour bus involved in a police standoff in Oklahoma last night ... and he's already been arrested in connection with the incident.
TMZ broke the story ... 2 Chainz' tour bus was pulled over in OKC around midnight after police noticed its taillights were out. When they approached the vehicle, cops say they noticed signs of drug use and attempted to board the bus.
But the bus driver locked the police out, insisting they obtain a warrant first.
Police did just that and eventually entered the bus hours later, where they arrested 11 passengers for "interfering with the police process," including 2 Chainz.
It's unclear if they face additional charges.
Alleged Stalker Vacationed
In Her Hamptons Mansion
8/22/2013 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Someone's been sleeping in Jennifer Lopez's pool house, and it ain't Goldilocks -- cops arrested an alleged stalker who somehow managed to live in the pool house of her massive Hamptons mansion ... for several days ... without getting noticed.
According to Southampton police, 49-year-old John M. Dubis basically moved in to J.Lo's $10 million pad sometime in early August.
He reportedly walked around the estate freely, hanging out openly in view of neighbors... and even posted Facebook photos of himself all over the grounds, such as the one below -- before police finally busted him on Aug. 8.
And how's this for weird ... two days before his arrest, Dubis dropped by a nearby menswear store and purchased a plaid overcoat.
Jennifer was not home, but the shocking part is security guards were patrolling the property.
Of course, you have to remember the 8,500 sq. foot home sits on 3 acres -- and it's a decent hike out to the pool house from the main quarters.
Dubis was booked for burglary, stalking, and criminal contempt. He pled not guilty, and is currently sitting in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. The judge has ordered a mental evaluation for Dubis.
J.Lo already had a protective order against him for contacting her mother earlier this year.

Miller was taken into custody at the gun shop -- and was hauled to a nearby Sheriff's Dept. where he was booked ... and posed for a mug shot, obtained by TMZ.
Miller was eventually released on a $1,000 bond.

We also know Lebeau is described on Bravo's website as a marine engineer with a "rebellious side." Think Jacques Cousteau meets James Dean meets Camille Grammer.
Not So Fun Fact: It's not C.J.'s first run-in with the law, he has an open case in Arizona stemming from a marijuana-related arrest in May ... he's a rebel after all.
Bravo had no comment.

Riff Raff just learned Southern hospitality only goes so far ... he was arrested early Sunday morning in North Carolina after cops found drugs in his car.
The rapper was tooling around Greensboro at around 2:30 AM and bizarrely stopped in the middle of traffic to talk to a bunch of pedestrians ... and if we know our Riff Raff, we're guessing he was pimpin' it.
Cops approached the vehicle and say they saw an open container of alcohol, which then triggered a full-blown search of the vehicle. That's when police say they found weed and some sort of powerful narcotic, along with drug paraphernalia.
The former MTV reality star (who may or may not have been the inspiration for James Franco's character in "Spring Breakers") was arrested along with his 2 passengers and taken to jail, where they were booked and released without bail.
Cops say Riff turned on the Southern charm, because he was "not aggressive and polite."
