Rapper TI Arrested For Disorderly Conduct, Public Drunkenness

The rapper TI has been arrested on disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and simple assault charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta, police have said. He says he called out the guard for sleeping on the job, and a "very heated debate" ensued, but nothing ever became physical - "may have been hurt by my words", T.I. told The Blast.

Henry County Deputy Police Chief Mike Ireland said T.I. was arrested around 4:30 a.m. after he got into an argument with a security guard.

BTW, T.I.'s already been released ... without bail. During the argument, he told the guard, "Don't you know who I am?" "The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse".

He had arrived at the gated community where he resides but didn't have his key, according to police.

Police officer shoots, wounds armed suspect at IL school
Shortly thereafter the suspect was taken into custody and transported for medical attention of non-life threatening injuries. A 19-year-old former student was shot by a police officer after arriving at Dixon High School with a weapon this morning.

A WSB reporter also posted T.I.'s mugshot on Twitter. In 2009, he was sentenced to one year and one day in prison and ordered to pay $100,300 for federal weapons charges after his sentence was reduced via plea bargain from 10 years and a $250,000 fine.

Still, he claims the security guard, who was African-American, "antagonized" him and had "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused. The rapper contacted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who confirmed that her husband should be allowed inside the community. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. 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. Attorney Sadow says the officers had no interest in "hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip".

Aside from being a rapper and actor, T.I.is also a activist involved in local and national social issues.
