T.I. Arrested Outside His Gated Community Allegedly On Disorderly Conduct, Public Drunkenness & Assault
by RK Jackson
Atlanta rapper T.I. was arrested in Henry County early Wednesday. The rapper, Clifford Harris Jr., was apprehended after returning to his gated community around 4 a.m., according to Channel 2 Action News. T.I. did not have his key and argued with a guard who would not allow him access to his home, Henry County police told the news station.
At some point, the rapper called a friend who eventually joined him. The Henry County Police Department arrested Tip for disorderly conduct, assault and public drunkenness. He has since been released without bail.
Update: Leaked footage from Henry County Jail suggests that T.I. might have been wrongfully arrested.

T.I. Tells TMZ
He says the guard claimed he couldn’t find T.I. on the resident directory, so T.I. had his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, call. He says Tiny asked why the hold-up and said, “Just let him in.” T.I. claims the guard barked back at Tiny, “Who the f*** do you think you is talking to me like this?”
T.I. says he was livid about that, and admits yelling obscenities. He says he reminded the guard, “I pay you” … and then demanded entry again. He says the guard relented, but when T.I. demanded his name in order to report him to a supervisor, he says the guard only stared with a “blank face.”
T.I. says he went home, cooled down and then decided to walk back to get the guy’s name — but only got more of the silent treatment. He admits, at this point, saying, “You can step outside the booth into the street, so we can talk.”
He denies having any intent to get physical.
