T.I. was reportedly arrested outside the gated community where he lives in Henry County, Georgia around 4 A.M. on Wednesday (May 16) for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
According to WSBTV, it appears that T.I. (born Clifford Harris Jr.) may have been returning from a night out when he got back to the gated community where he lives when he realized he didn’t have his key. He reportedly argued with the security guard who refused to let him in, and eventually he called a friend who joined him and things escalated to the point that police were called.
“Don’t you know who I am?” Tip asked the security guard, according to Henry County Police.
Police arrested both T.I. and his friend, who reportedly had a warrant out for his arrest already. T.I. was charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, but has since bonded out.
XXL has reached out to T.I.’s team for a comment on the incident.
“I think, you know, mental stabilization needs to be a big part—not being a felon isn’t enough. People think the felons are the ones causing the problems but it seems as though people who have been given gun licenses, who bought guns legally, are the ones who are causing all of the mass hysteria.”
“Our system is broken,” he added.
