T.I. was arrested on charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness following an incident that occurred at the rapper’s gated community near Atlanta early Wednesday morning.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. (real name Clifford Harris Jr.) attempted to enter the gated community at 4 a.m., but the security guard on shift refused to allow him in because the rapper did not have his key on him. Harris then called a friend who met him at the guard station, where an argument with the guard ensued.
“Don’t you know who I am?” Harris asked the guard, according to the police report (via WSB-TV).
TMZ reports that Harris was ultimately granted access to the gated community, but returned to the guard station on foot shortly after. At that point, police were called and the rapper was booked on the three misdemeanor charges, while the unnamed friend was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Harris was released on $2,250 bail at 8 a.m. He did not appear before a judge. A representative for T.I. did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
