After only a single day of partial freedom following several months in prison, T.I. is already back in federal custody. The Federal Bureau of Prisons confirms that the rapper checked into a federal penitentiary in Atlanta last night, but would not elaborate further.
According to T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, he’s back in federal custody because of an issue involving his trip from the Arkansas prison to his Atlanta halfway house on a luxury bus on Wednesday.
Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr. (born September 25, 1980), is better known by his stage name T.I. or T.I.P., he is an American recording artist, film & music producer, actor and author. He is also the founder and (CEO) of Grand Hustle Records. Clifford has been arrested on both drug and weapons charges and is a convicted felon.
Sadow says: “We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with TI’s method of transportation, bus, from Arkansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence.”
Sadow adds the issue was not drug-related.
T.I. was sentenced in October to 11 months in prison for violating his probation, but was let out early. He was to complete the rest of his sentence in the halfway house.
