According to TMZ, “The rapper was trying to get to his house Wednesday morning — around 4 AM — but didn’t have his key. T.I. and a friend argued with the guard at the security shack, who wouldn’t let them enter … and it got heated enough that cops showed up.”
Police in Henry County promptly arrested T.I., whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. It’s not clear when he’s due back in court, but the rapper is certainly no stranger to the judicial system.
He’s served 11 months in federal prison for a weapons charge andtwo terms in county jail. He also had a run-in with the IRS in 2015 for reportedly not properly paying his taxes in 2012 and 2013.
