The rapper is charged with 3 misdemeanors.
T.I. is facing legal troubles that stem from an event that occurred in May. The rapper was involved in a drunken disagreement with a security guard that resulted in his being arrested. At the time, he was attempting to enter a gated community. When the security guard refused his entry into the premises, T.I. became aggressive, spewing threats and asking the individual to exit the guard shack. The guard decided to call legal authorities to the location when faced with the drunken outburst. Henry County prosecutors have filed charges against the Georgia native. These charges include simple assault, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct.
His lawyer, Steve Sadow, is said to have labeled the allegations as "baseless, ill-founded and unjustified." He also stated that the security guard in question, "was fired for the way he handled the situation with T.I." It is reported that this situation is not likely to result in any jail time.
These are not the only legal issues the entertainer needs to deal with. He is still involved in drawn-out proceedings with his wife Tiny. The couple has yet to finalize their divorce. Their complex dispute involves Tiny hiring a private investigator to track her husband's movements.
