Rapper TI arrested near home

Share

He was arrested around 4.30am after he got into an argument with a security guard, according to Henry County Police.

T.I. - whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr. - is no stranger to crime, but he changed his life around and has mostly stayed away from legal trouble after serving several stints in federal prison.

USA rapper TI has been arrested on disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta.

After getting released from jail earlier, T.I. took to Instagram Live to share a heartfelt moment with his family.

But Harris's lawyer said Harris had been "wrongfully arrested".

T.I. has since been released after posting bond, the AJC reported. He says the guard eventually called the police, but says the law enforcement near his home are "white cops in a very white area", and he was promptly arrested.

"The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse", Sadow said, using the rapper's nickname. However, a new update from TMZ reveals that the guard did allow T.I. on the property and that Tip ended up returning to the gate to confront the guy once again. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. T.I. says he was then refused entry and a "very heated debate" ensued, during which T.I. says the guard "antagonized" him. "The guard refused entry". Tip was in contact with Tiny' by phone and "Tiny" confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or supervisor called the police.

The Washington Post left a message with Henry County Police Deputy Mike Ireland seeking more information. "When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip".
