Rapper TI Is Arrested on Public Drunkenness

The guard eventually let the rapper in, but he told police T.I. came back the shack and began making threats like "come outside so we can deal with it".

T.I. says his early morning arrest was completely B.S. and believes he got locked up by white police officers for being an affluent African-American celebrity. According to reports, the rapper realized he forgot his key card and asked a guard to let him in around the 4 am hour. Police were called and Tip was hauled off to jail and charged with simple assault and public intoxication, even though he never laid a hand on anyone. He lent his celebrity to politics, loudly supporting Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who later appointed him and fellow rapper Killer Mike to her transition team. When he requested the officer, the response was, "as a result of your have been appearing like a idiot".

T.I. said, as a tax-paying citizen and multi-million dollar homeowner, he had a right to confront the security guard working the gate, but the officer said that the guard "didn't have to answer to [him]". He mentioned he was merely asking the guard a query.

Minutes after his release, T.I. spoke to The Blast about his arrest. "Tip was in contact with [wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris] by phone and "Tiny" confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately".

The chain which sells mother, baby and toddler products is the latest retailer to announce substantial store closures. It will also see the return of chief executive Mark Newton-Jones just 36 days after he unexpectedly left the company.

T.I.is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and "antagonized" him. The police or the guard's supervisor reportedly chose not to watch the surveillance video to confirm what actually happened. "When the police arrived, they weren't interested by listening to Tip's facet of the story and wrongfully selected to finish the state of affairs by arresting Tip". The police report alleged that T.I. showed up at the entrance to the gated community where he lives drunk and looking for a fight.

T.I. was released without bail. The drug arrest violated his probation - he had been ordered not to commit a crime and not to illegally possess any controlled substances - and led to an 11-month prison sentence at an Arkansas prison.
