According to TMZ, the Hustle Gang rapper was trying to get to his house around 4 a.m., but didn't have his key.
The guard told called police officer when T.I. started yelling at him and asked for his supervisor name. Things escalated quickly and cops were eventually called. T.I. was charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, but has since bonded out.
Although all details have yet to be released, it appears that T.I. may have been a profiled without cause.
T.I.'s most recent album, "Paperwork", arrived in 2014, but the rapper has been working on a new release, "The Dime Trap", that is expected this year.
Wouldn't have time and tax dollars been saved if Tip had been let into his crib and allowed to sleep off the night's revelry, though.
His friend, Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, was arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County and for not having proof of vehicle insurance, the sheriff's office told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Tip then called a friend for backup during the argument.
"The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse", Sadow said, using the rapper's nickname. He says the rapper identified himself and sought entry, but the guard refused. Tip was in contact with "Tiny" by phone and "Tiny" confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately'. The situation turned into a heated debate and police did not want to hear Tip's side of the story. The drug arrest violated his probation - he had been ordered not to commit a crime and not to illegally possess any controlled substances - and led to an 11-month prison sentence at an Arkansas prison.
T.I.is pictured at the "Rapture" Premiere 2018 SXSW Conference and Festivals at Paramount Theatre on March 17, 2018 in Austin, Texas.
It's not the first time T.I. has run afoul of authorities.
