Ireland said T.I. was arrested along with a friend.

TIP was taken into custody early Wednesday morning when a security guard at his gate community home in Henry County, an Atlanta suburb south of the city.

The artist, whose real name is Clifford Harris, was arrested Wednesday morning outside of his gated community.

His lifestyle change involved becoming more of a social activist figure and using his platform to become a political influence, which makes Wednesday's arrest particularly concerning.

The security guard told cops he did not recognize T.I., so he didn't let him pass.

The Henry County Sheriff's Office said T.I. was cited on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after an alleged incident about 4 a.m.in Stockbridge, south of Atlanta.

His friend, Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, was arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County and for not having proof of vehicle insurance, the sheriff's office told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.


Following his arrest, the rapper T.I.'s mugshot has been released.

According to the police report, T.I. argued with the security guard when he discovered he was asleep on the job, was eventually let in, then drove home to park his auto and walked back to get the security guard's name. "With all we been through this is small potatoes, man". He said the guard was asleep when his client arrived at the guardhouse and it took "some time to wake up the sleeping guard". Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. He says he demanded the guard's name, but the guy refused.

"Tip was in contact with Tiny by phone and Tiny confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately", Sadow adds. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip'. The guard refused entry.

Earlier this year, he sat down with 11Alive's Neima Abdulahi to discuss school walkouts and gun violence after the Parkland high school shooting in Florida.

Last month, BET announced a new Atlanta-based series, "The Grand Hustle", which will give 16 hopeful entrepreneurs the opportunity to compete for a position and six-figure salary within T.I.'s Grand Hustle music empire.

"I'm here, present at school".

He insists he should never have been arrested and explains he got into a "very heated debate" with the security guard because he was allegedly asleep while he was supposed to be working.
