T.I. was arrested for public intoxication outside his wife’s gated mansion in Henry County, Georgia early Wednesday. Henry County police told Atlanta’s WSB-TV Channel 2 News that the rapper was arrested around 4 a.m. and later released on bond.



T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, Jr., was returning to his wife Tameka Harris’s gated subdivision when he encountered a security guard sleeping at the gate.

The rapper said he didn’t have a key and the guard refused to let him in. During the altercation, T.I. asked the guard, “Don’t you know who I am?”

T.I. said Tameka called the guardhouse and ordered the guard to let the rapper through. That’s when the argument escalated and the police were called. T.I. was taken into custody.

“Tip was in contact with Tiny by phone and Tiny confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately,” T.I.’s lawyer Steve Sadow said. “The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a 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.”

Tameka, 42, never went out to the guard shack during the incident.

Tip Harris

The rapper told The Blast about the encounter, claiming the charges were racially motivated because the officers who arrested him are “white cops in a very white area.”

Tameka moved out of T.I.’s Lake Spivey mansion in Jonesboro after years of abuse and rampant rumors of him cheating on her.

She moved into the secure, gated Eagles Landing Country Club a few miles away from T.I.’s home. She declined to give her husband the gate code or a key to her mansion, which is situated on a golf course near comedian Chris Tucker’s palatial home.

Tameka then filed for divorce from T.I., but the divorce action was part of the storyline for the couple’s now canceled reality TV show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.

T.I. and Tiny are currently in talks with VH1 to bring the show back.

Shadow says he plans to take legal action against Tameka’s homeowner’s association over the incident.

    …claiming the charges were racially motivated because the officers who arrested him are “white cops in a very white area.”
    ———–

    So tired of these negros playing the race card for every situation. Public intoxication is an arrestable offense, period. Either you’re drunk or you’re not. And if you’re drunk in public you can get arrested for that.

    Not everything is racially motivated.

I take it he was drunk talking and acting drunk at 4 am which is why they said pack it up let’s go I’m taking you in! Tip already arrogant so I can imagine how he is when he drunk he prolly was citing all types of laws quotes and scriptures and asking for badge numbers when all they asked for was his ID ?

    _______________________________________
    Then this should have been deaded from jump. The “guards” were probably the ones being irrational but because he’s a black man (who probably has more money than them), they knew he was an easy target. Just like Usher and Chris Brown.

  • Roxie Moxie

    But, why was he even arrested when allegedly Tiny said that he “should be let in immediately”. Maybe he knew he was drunk (explains him not finding his key) and needed to get some p*ssy…I mean, needed to get in a safe place. Think this could have been prevented if they heeded Tiny’s request? Were the guards drunk too? Why would you not listen to the very person whose payroll you’re on? Sounds like she needs a new guard.

    Well according to the Dekalb county police officer that answered my husband’s, then boyfriend’s, phone since he technically was not operating the vehicle but simply at the pump with the ignition off, in a deep coma-like sleep, with the windows rolled up dripping sweat, they could only charge him with public drunkenness? The shame of it all?????

  • Junkanoo

    A complicated marriage she moved out but he’s coming over in the am she might as well just stayed where she was and not move . She is easy going no ex of mine would be coming over at that hour or are they still married l can’t keep track

  • DroneRivers

    lol! I’m behaving this time! I was very surprised that he said “Don’t you know who I am?” and not something more overly verbose lol

    But real talk, it’s a silly situation he put himself in. And his friend is even dumber for going along knowing he has warrants.

    Why didn’t Tiny just come out there and let him in?…..case solved !

    Drama Queen.

    You knew he would come up with something that makes him seem like a victim.

    I guess he’ll try to make this all about Black Lives Matter and racial profiling. Of course, most of his fans aren’t themselves being turned away at the gates of their multi-million dollar homes while drunk and disorderly in the middle of the night.

    By the way, it was inevitable that Tiny was gonna cover for him. But the Tea is, she had told that security company to let him, not let him, let him, not let him so many times that they couldn’t keep up. A man earning $10 an hour would not want to be the one to let him on a night he wasn’t supposed to.

    And of course that guy will lose his job so T.I. can get good press.

    I see Tiny is still a fool for this despicable little nincompoop.

    Hell she prolly the one who called the police. Came over there drunk and the guard has already prolly been instructed not to let him in. You don’t think that guard knew who he was?? Of course he did.

    Let him in?!?!?fa what? When he was “In” he wanted “Out”! Tip knows he’s a married with a whole dam family in toe and hoe’n around like he sangle. What makes this even worst is this nugga has zero discretion. I would’ve let him in either. He made a bed with his thot let him go back and lie in it.

  • pure_rachet

    Lol!

  • the guest

    Because she didn’t really really really want him to come in like she used to be.

    Old Tiny would’ve ran down to that gate with baby on hip to check the guard and get TI. New Tiny probably told the guard on the phone “yes, that’s my husband” but didn’t actually say let him in.

    Basically, Tiny has set some new life and house rules for TI. No more coming home all hours drunk after being god knows where with god knows who. He won’t do it again.

  • the guest

    LOL

  • XoXo

    What he should’ve done was taken his drunk a$$ home. What decent man goes to a woman’s house at 4am? And the home association is there for Tameka & her safety, not his. Watch tomorrow he’ll be back to perpetrating looking like Malcom X.

  • DeJeri

    Cuz she wasn’t in the mood to give his drunk a$$ any puzzy.

  • the guest

    Lots of long time marrieds do this if they can afford to. It usually takes time for a cheating husband to earn the wife’s trust back. Tiny bought that house for peace of mind and heart. Cheating hurts. She needed someplace on her terms for him to learn respect. Well, he just learned he can’t come in drunk all hours of the night.

  • the guest

    I fell out.

  • the guest

    Yep, Tiny low key blocked him.

    Tiny finally teaching TI how to respect her.

    He is actually an advocate in helping felons in GA to re-register. Main reason they walking around uninformed. Crap like this.

    “This is something that most people don’t know,” he says, “as long as you are not serving any sentence or as long as you are not on any probation or anything, if you’ve completed your term, you’ve served your debt to society, you can re-register.”

    He’s still a FELON! Looks like he’s working on getting yet another FELONY. Just a LOSER with a big mouth and a drinking and drug problem.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The point is the guard was doing his job by not allowing access to a non-resident. For all we know, Tiny told the guard not to let him in. Tiny is a grown woman with her own house. She doesn’t have to deal with him when he’s having his moments.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She is pleased. Eagles Landing has excellent security. T.I.’s Lake Spivey mansion does not have security. There is no guard gate (there is a gate around his house). I checked, and T.I.’s house has not been listed for sale, which means he still lives there — alone.
