T.I. And Lawyer Issue Statements After Arrest For Disorderly Conduct



T.I. was arrested and charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness after getting into a “heated” argument with security guard at his gated community at 4 AM this morning.


He bonded out shortly after being brought in, and was able to speak about the incident.


T.I. says he called out the guard for sleeping on the job and an argument ensued between the two.  He says it was a “very heated debate,” but nothing ever became physical.  He says the guard eventually called the police, but says the law enforcement near his home are “white cops in a very white area,” and he was promptly arrested.


The artist tells us the security guard involved in the argument is black, which added to the frustration of the situation.  He says he gave the guard “every opportunity” to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused.


T.I. is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and “antagonized” him.  He says he demanded the guard’s name, but the guy refused.


Tip’s lawyer also issued a statement.


Statement on behalf of Clifford Harris, Jr. – TI (“Tip”):

“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.”

Steve Sadow
Attorney for Clifford Harris, Jr.


Police say T.I. didn’t have the key to his home and pulled a “do you know who I am” on the security guard.
