TI Arrested In Georgia For Assault And Public Drunkenness

According to police, the rapper didn't have his key and the guard wouldn't let him in. Eventually, the police were called. James said T.I. started using profanity and yelled at him to open the gate, the report said.

Mr Ireland said TI and a friend were arrested. Then, the "Dope" performer and his pal began arguing with the guard. According to local police, T.I.'s friend already had a warrant made out for his arrest from a prior conviction, his booking completely unrelated to the argument itself.

The Atlanta rapper had been on the straight and narrow since being released from prison.

Update, 3:45 p.m. ET: T.I. has responded to reports of his arrest, telling the Blast that the incident was racially motivated and involved "white cops in a very white area". The rapper was released from the Henry County Jail about 8 a.m. Wednesday after posting $2,250 bond.

Following news of the arrest, T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, provided the following statement to ET, alleging his client was the victim of a wrongful arrest.

TMZ reported that T.I. - real name Clifford Harris - was trying to get into his house in the early hours of Wednesday morning, but he didn't have his key.

"It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard".

Wouldn't have time and tax dollars been saved if Tip had been let into his crib and allowed to sleep off the night's revelry, though. "I guess y'all been hearing all the nonsense", he said, wearing the same shirt he wore in his mugshot.

"Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police", the statement continued.
