Police say the rapper T.I. was arrested early Wednesday on disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and simple assault charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta. The rapper had allegedly forgotten his key but the security guard would not let him into the gated neighborhood, which resulted in an argument. It's unknown whether the guard was simply following protocol or was unable to identify the person he was sworn to protect. That's when cops were called to the scene, and ended up arresting him. T.I. says that he yelled at the guard for sleeping, calling it "a very heated debate" but that he never got physical. The guard feigned indifference.
Back in 2007, T.I. was arrested on federal weapons charges after he sent a bodyguard to purchase machine guns and silencers.

"Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community - where his wife Tiny' and his family reside". He claims the guard was asleep when his client arrived at the guardhouse and it took "some time to wake up the sleeping guard".
Despite the headline-generating bust, Tip didn't spend much time in police custody or have to stand before a judge.
"Tip was in contact with Tiny by phone and Tiny confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately", Sadow adds. In fact, T.I. says the guard even refused to provide his name, so he is planning to sue for the incident. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police. "The guard refused entry".
