T.I. Arrested Because a Security Guard Didn’t Recognize Him

Big things were poppin’ for rapper T.I. on Wednesday morning as he was arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

Tip was just trying to return to his home when a security guard stopped him at the gate. But after a night of giving the people whatever they like, he forgot his key. The guard would not let him into the community without a key. T.I. played the “Do you know who I am?” card and the guard played the “Are you T.I. or Tip today?” card.

T.I. phoned a friend, which only further escalated the argument. The cops were called it and it turns out that the rapper’s friend had a warrant out for his arrest. T.I. was arrested as well, but has since posted bail.

His attorney released a statement to WSB Atlanta:

“Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community – where his wife “Tiny” and his family reside. The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse. It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. The guard refused entry. Tip was in contact with “Tiny” by phone and “Tiny” confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately. 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.”

They also posted his mugshot.

That’s the face of a dude who is thinking, “I’m about to get this security guard fired when I get the hell out of here.”
