HENRY COUNTY, GA
Rapper T.I was arrested while attempting to gain entry into the gated community he lives and owns a home in, during the early hours of Wednesday morning. USA Today (@USATODAY) reports, Henry County Deputy Police Chief, Mike Ireland said a security guard called police to Eagles Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, about 30 minutes southeast of Atlanta, around 4am. The security guard said that he’d allegedly been in an argument with T.I, who had lost his key. T.I was attempting to enter the gated community so he could return to the home he owns with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris and the couples’ children.
When the police arrived, T.I was arrested and charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness. He was booked and released on $2,250 bail. T.I’s lawyer, Steve Sadow said that T.I identified himself to the security guard and phoned his wife, waking her up from her sleep to have her confirm his identity to the security guard.
“The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently, the guard and/or supervisor called the police. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip’s side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip.” T.I’s lawyer, Steve Sadow said in a statement to NBC affiliate 11Alive.
Federal authorities have charged 57 members of several different white supremacist gangs in a large drug trafficking and kidnapping conspiracy based in the North Texas area. Police, Feds, and ATF agents arrested 42 of the gang members last week across the North Texas area, US Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said on Monday during a news conference. Nine others were already in custody for other crimes, and six more were still on the run, she said.
Dallas News.com (dallasnews) reports, the defendants are linked to several violent and racist prison gangs that include the Aryan Circle, the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, the Peckerwoods, the Soldiers of Aryan Culture, and the Dirty White boys, the 55-page indictment says.
“These white supremacist hangs have long plagued our communities and prisons.” Nealy Cox said.
The conspiracy to sell methamphetamine cited in the indictment ran from October 2015 through April 2018 and employed “stash houses” to store the drug, according to the indictment. The indictment also includes charges related to heroin, firearms, and U47700, a potent synthetic opiod known as “Pink.”
Four of the defendants kidnapped a non-member in January over an alleged $600 drug debt and held him in Grand Prairie for several days during which they tortured him, Nealy Cox said. They put a gun to his head and threatened to kill him.
“Ultimately, the victim narrowly escaped with his life.” Nealy Cox said.
Agents seized about $376,500 in cash and intercepted more than 190 kilograms of methamphetamine along with 31 firearms as part of their investigation, Nealy Cox said.
LAS VEGAS, NV
Former “That’s So Raven” actor, Orlando Brown’s public fall from grace continues. In the latest episode of “watching my life go down”, Bloom was arrested by Bounty Hunters in Las Vegas after a “failure to appear warrant” had been dished out by a judge in Torrance, CA. The original case stems from allegations that Bloom hit his girlfriend last year.
TMZ (@tmz) reports, Bloom was taken out of a friends’ house by Bounty Hunters in his underwear in handcuffs. The footage comes from a Las Vegas Bounty Hunter named “Lucky.” The video starts with the bounty hunters attempting to gain entry into the house. The homeowner pushes back, claiming the bounty hunters have no legal right to enter the home.
“Lucky” the bounty hunter told TMZ that he had legal paperwork and warrants, so they were allowed to enter the home and look for Brown. The bounty hunters decided to enter the residence by force. They found Brown hiding in a bedroom closet wearing a t-shirt and boxer shorts. Instead of allowing Brown to put on some clothes, Lucky and his team decided that it would be best (or would make for better ratings) if they dragged Brown out in his drawls or draws….however you want to pronounce it. Anyway, here’s the video:

Former NBA player Glen Davis has come a long way from his glory days in the league. The former Boston Celtic and LA Clippers player was arrested in a Maryland Hotel last month and charged with drug possession and distribution. Davis was arrested on Feb 7th at the Hampton Inn in Aberdeen. ESPN (@espn) reported, that it was the smell of marijuana that got Davis in trouble. When the owner of the hotel smelled the aroma of something good in the air, his investigation led him to Davis’ room. The owner called the cops. When officers ran up in the room they found Davis, about a quarter pound of weed, and around $92,000 in cash. Davis was arrested and later charged with seven (7) counts of drug possession and distribution. What’s strange to me is the amount of weed recovered in relation to the amount of money recovered. Doesn’t that seem a little strange to you? 125 grams of weed is not that much herb. There are probably people who smoke that much in a few days. Why did he have so much money in the room when he was dealing with an amount of weed that small? Maybe he sold some before 5-0 ran up in the spot? But why have that type of money up in the hotel with you if that was the case? I don’t know…..maybe he was waiting on a customer to come through and buy the last quarter pound. Maybe he was up in the hotel slangin’ nicks and dimes. Either way, Big Baby got himself caught up in some mess. I still find it amazing that people who were making millions of dollars just a few short years earlier turn to illegal means of obtaining money so quickly after they leave the league. Why not invest in stocks or sell stuff on Ebay or something? Anything has to be better than having to spend MORE MONEY to fight a dummy case and have to pay to bail yourself out of jail because of a case you caught while trying to make some money. That seems like hustling backwards to me. Remember that Biggie Smalls lyric “Time to contemplate, damn, where did I fail? All the money I stacked, was all the money for bail.”
