HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - NOVEMBER 14: 2 Chainz attends the "Queen & Slim" Premiere at AFI FEST 2019 presented by Audi at the TCL Chinese Theatre on November 14, 2019 in Hollywood, California.
One of 2 Chainz’s restaurants recently got shut down by police for violating COVID-19 guidelines, as TMZ reports.
On Monday night (May 25), 2 Chainz’s popular Georgia restaurant, Escobar Restaurant & Tapas, was ordered to shut its doors following a visit from the Georgia State Police.
Cops said that they drove by the restaurant and “noticed that the location was rather loud, busy, and occupied to be operating as a restaurant at that time of night,” according to the police report.
Videos from that night at the restaurant were also shared on social media platforms such as Instagram, showing the packed establishment with people dancing, ordering hookah, and not practicing social distancing.
According to law enforcement, the police arrived and “spoke to the manager before shutting the location down as it was violating executive orders regarding protocol issued due to COVID-19.”As we previously reported, 2 Chainz initially said that he would use his restaurants to feed the homeless and wait a while before bringing back his staff.
