T.I Back In Prison

US rapper T.I who was recently released from prison after serving 11
months was back in federal custody on Thursday, September 1, 2011
after an issue over his “use of a luxury bus to report to a halfway
house”, his lawyer said.

T.I’s lawyer Steve Sadow told The Associated Press that the Federal
Bureau of Prisons moved T.I to another facility because there was an
issue involving the Riverdale, Georgia born rapper’s trip from the
Arkansas Prison to Atlanta.

‘There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of
transportation’, Sadow said

The exact nature of the problem Federal authorities had was not
elaborated on but it wasn’t drug related.

Spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Traci Billingsley told
The Associated Press that she couldn’t say anything on the rapper’s present condition
nor his ‘immediate whereabouts’.

T.I real name Clifford Harris was arrested in 2009 for trying to buy
unregistered guns and silencers from undercover federal agents and
served 9 months in prison. He was put on probation after his release
only to be picked in 2010 for possession of ecstasy pills.

After his release on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 the rapper had
commenced on a reality on post-prison reality show on VH1 to ‘advise
people not go down the same path he took growing up’

The rapper has released seven albums in his career and received three
Grammy Awards.
