Rapper TI arrested in Henry County on assault, disorderly charges

17 May 2018

T.I. was arrested early this morning inside his own gated community in Atlanta, TMZ reports.

According to WSBTV, the rapper born Clifford Harris Jr. didn't have his key to the gated entrance.

In an update, TMZ reported that sources told them T.I. did not strike the guard but that the guard "feared he would be hit during the dispute", which apparently under Georgia law constitutes simple assault. He was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after his lawyer said the guard wrongfully refused entry to the community and called police after and argument. The friend, who had a warrant out for his arrest from Clayton County, was arrested on that warrant.

Since his release, T.I. has addressed the issue in an Instagram livestream while attending his son's classroom birthday celebration in which he referred to the arrest as "nonsense" and "small potatoes."

However, T.I.'s attorney Steve Sadow later stated that the rapper had called his wife, who confirmed that T.I. should be allowed entry. He says he demanded the guard's name, but the guy refused.

ABC News has reached out to T.I's camp for comment. According to The Blast, T.I. says the incident started because the security guard of his gated area fell asleep in the guard shack.

The rapper served about seven months in prison in 2009 after his arrest on federal gun charges. He then called a friend, but that didn't help the situation, as both men began to argue with the security guard, which led to police officers being called.

Despite the headline-generating bust, Tip didn't spend much time in police custody or have to stand before a judge.
