Earlier today we reported the T.I. was arrested for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Now, we are getting more information about the incident, and according to the police report, the security guard called the cops on Tip because he felt “threatened.”
The altercation happened after he got home around 4 a.m and observed the security guard, Euwan James, sleeping. After he woke him up, the guard didn’t recognized the rapper and refused to let him in his gated community in Henry County. This reportedly led to T.I cursing and yelling at him to open the gate.
According to a report obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, after the guard opened the gate, the rapper went home to park his car then came back to try to get the guard’s name. Things quickly escalated and T.I. told him to, “Come outside so we can deal with this man to man. Let go in the street.” According to the police report, the dispatch heard T.I. yelling in the background too.
At that point, the guard said he felt threatened for his life so he decided to get the police involved. When cops arrived, they smelled alcohol on his breath and he was arrested.
He’s since been released.
