OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City attorney is suing Atlanta-based rapper 2 Chainz, claiming he wasn’t paid for legal work.

The Oklahoman newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1LGMBBv ) attorney Kent Bridge is seeking “in excess of $10,000” from the artist, whose real name is Tauheed Epps.

Epps and 10 others on his tour bus were arrested in Oklahoma City in 2013 after refusing police commands to get out for nine hours. Bridge claims he negotiated Epps’ peaceful surrender.

Bridge claims police had been contemplating a tactical entry and that the situation could have escalated to a point of violence.

Epps pleaded guilty in 2014 to a misdemeanor, obstructing a police officer in the performance of his official duties.

Mack Martin, who had represented Epps in the past, declined to comment on the lawsuit to the newspaper.
