Some point after, T.I. called a friend and the two continued to argue with the guard, police said. He was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after his lawyer said the guard wrongfully refused entry to the community and called police after and argument. After arriving on the scene, Henry County PD also arrested Tip's friend, who has not been identified. I just got my hands on the mugshot.
T.I.'s wife, R&B singer and songwriter Tameka "Tiny" Harris owns a home in the Eagles's Landing Country Club community that she bought in 2014.
The rapper has since been released and took to Instagram live to show fans he's still in good spirits.
He had arrived at the gated community where he resides but didn't have his key, according to police.
T.I. claims the whole thing started because he was returning home from the studio and noticed the security guard allegedly asleep in the guard shack. Tip was in contact with "Tiny" by phone and "Tiny" confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or supervisor called the police. Attorney Sadow says the officers had no interest in "hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip".
ABC News has reached out to T.I's camp for comment. Past year he used his star power to fuel a boycott of Houston's restaurant after allegations of racial discrimination surfaced.
In an interview with the Blast after his arrest, T.I. said that he got into a "very heated debate" with the guard, but that there was no physical confrontation. "The kids - they are going to be the future leaders".
