"Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community - where his wife "Tiny" and his family reside".
Earlier today, T.I. was reported to be charged after he got into an altercation with a security guard at the gated community he lives in.
Big things were poppin' for rapper T.I. on Wednesday morning as he was arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. When he asked the officer, the response was, "because your were acting like a fool". T.I. asked the guard what his name was several times, but the guard didn't answer. He said he was simply asking the guard a question.
He insists he should never have been arrested and explains he got into a "very heated debate" with the security guard because he was allegedly asleep while he was supposed to be working.More news: YouTube launching new music streaming service that rivals Spotify
"I paid millions for a house in that residential area", the rapper said in the video.
They say he "clearly identified himself and sought entry" but the guard refused to let him past. He says he gave the guard "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused. "Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police", Sadow said.
Sadow claims police did not want to hear from T.I.'s side and arrested his client. After a while, T.I. and his friend drove off. He spent 11 months in federal prison the following year for a probation violation after an arrest on drug charges. He's been active in community outreach, focusing on youth programs for boys and girls.
"I guess y'all have been hearing all the nonsense you know saying, I'm looking like yesterday man, I was inconvenienced and arrested, you know what I'm saying", T.I., whose birth name is Clifford Harris, Jr., said.More news: Officer saved lives by facing school gunman
The rapper has been released on bond.
According to the police report, T.I. argued with the security guard when he discovered he was asleep on the job, was eventually let in, then drove home to park his auto and walked back to get the security guard's name. The couple is so over the drama that they're considering finding somewhere else to live!
