Rapper T.I. was released early from his federal prison sentence, but was thrown back behind bars because of his tour bus! What in the world could they have found?
Less than 24 hours after T.I. was released early from federal prison, he was thrown back behind bars! The rapper’s attorney, Steve Sadow, spoke with E! News to explain the situation and said officials were less than pleased with T.I.’s extravagant tour bus and entourage of black SUVs that transported him back to Atlanta.
“We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with T.I.’s method of transportation, bus, from Arksansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence,” Sadow explained.
T.I. was released from Forrest City Correctional Facility in Arkansas the morning of Aug. 31 and headed directly to a community living facility to serve out the rest of his sentence. He wrote on Twitter, “The storm is over & da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!”
Unfortunately, his excitement was short-lived and he was quickly pulled back into prison. He’s due to be out Sept. 29.
