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.
