T.I. has gotten himself into new legal troubles.
Recall that in May, the rapper was arrested in Harris County, Georgia, outside of his gated community. He allegedly didn’t have his key, and so the guard wouldn’t let him inside, thereby triggering an altercation between them.
“Don’t you know who I am?” a drunken T.I. was said to have asked the guard, before calling his friend (who was with him), and they proceeded to argue with the guard.
Well, the Henry County Police Department was called to the scene and both the rapper and his friend were arrested for “disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.”
Now, Page Six reports that prosecutors have charged the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, with three misdemeanors — simple assault, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
However, he doesn’t face any jail time.
Reacting to this update, the rapper’s attorney, Steve Sadow, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the security guard, named Euwan James, was fired following the altercation, and added that the charges are “baseless, ill-founded and unjustified.”
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
