TI Arrested In His Own Neighborhood, Scared Security Guard Calls Cops

USA rapper TI has been arrested on disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta.

Henry County Police Department said T.I. did not have his key and the guard wouldn't let him in, WSB reported Wednesday.

In the midst of the confrontation, T.I. called a friend, Marquinarius Holmes, who arrived on the scene and joined in the debate between him and the security guard.

T.I. says his early morning arrest was completely B.S. and believes he got locked up by white police officers for being an affluent African-American celebrity. T.I. was taken into custody on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness.

T.I. - whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr. - is no stranger to crime, but he changed his life around and has mostly stayed away from legal trouble after serving several stints in federal prison. A security guard at the guard shack initially wouldn't let them in either, the online report says. He claims he did not assault the guard but that the guard "may have been hurt by my words".

However, the website said the rapper was eventually allowed into his gated community after an initial argument with the guard.

Mr Ireland said TI and a friend were arrested.

Sadow said the rapper identified himself, was refused entry and then called his wife, singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris, who confirmed his identity. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. He also told the publication that he'd been returning home from the recording studio prior to the incident, and alleged that the guard had "antagonized" him.

Both Holmes and T.I. were ultimately arrested.

Wednesday after he bailed out, T.I. was able to spend some time with his family and celebrate his son Major's 10th birthday.

"I was inconvenienced and arrested", he said.
