2Pac is still arguably the best rapper of all-time and his legacy is solidified as a legend in and outside of music. Little do people know though, there is another Tupac Amaru Shakur in the world.

That other Tupac is a 40-year-old white man in Tennessee who was arrested in Johnson City over the weekend for pulling a knife out on police, according to the Johnson City Press. Shakur was charged with with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, simple possession of methamphetamine and having unlawful drug paraphernalia.

It all went down on October 19 around 5:40p.m. where police arrived at 2215 E Unaka Ave as they found Shakur after seeing that he had warrants out for his arrest. At the scene, they saw Shakur leaving in a car in the passengers side. They soon traced him down at 1908 E. Unaka Ave. As police tried to arrest him to put him into custody, he reached for his waistband and pulled out a knife. Police struggled to get Shakur down but eventually did so.

Shakur is being held at Washington County Detention Center under $18,000 bond. He is set to appear in a Sessions Court today.
