He then began demanding the guards let him in, repeatedly asking them if they were aware of who he was. Eventually, the guards granted the musician entrance into the community. After a short time, T.I. returned, on foot, to the guard window to confront the guard again. He had also called a friend to come to his aid, the friend joined in as the two harshly confronted the guard, and eventually this led to the police being called. The friend, who’s name is unknown at this time, was also arrest due to an outstanding warrant he had.

After serving just one year of the sentence, the rapper was paroled. In 2004 he was once again on the wrong side of the law when he was busted for a violation of his parole. In 2007 he faced prosecutors in a court room who pulled out every card, fighting to send the rapper away for a long time following a string of weapons relate convictions. He served one year and one day in prison following the court case. Most recently, in 2010 the singer and his wife were both arrested in Los Angeles on drug possession charges.
