The rapper had allegedly forgotten his key but the security guard would not let him into the gated neighborhood, which resulted in an argument.

The Atlanta native, whose legal name is Clifford Harris, arrived at his Henry County community around 4 a.m. and forgot his key. The Henry County Police Department was then called to the scene.

Fresh off his collaboration with Kanye West, T.I. got arrested for public drunkenness at his own gated community in Georgia, TMZ reports.

Police told the outlet that he was arrested at the gated community where he lives after an altercation with a security guard.

Police arrested both T.I. and his friend, who reportedly had a warrant out for his arrest already.

He was later released without bail.

T.I. was taken into police custody early Wednesday morning, May 16, 2018.

T.I. posted $2,250 bond and was released from Henry County Jail around 8 a.m.

His attorney, Steve Sadow, said in a statement Wednesday that the rapper was "wrongfully arrested". T.I. and an unidentified friend reportedly argued with the guard and eventually things escalated to the point that the cops showed up to arrest the rapper. T.I. asked the guard, police told WSB. "The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse".

Wouldn't have time and tax dollars been saved if Tip had been let into his crib and allowed to sleep off the night's revelry, though. "The guard refused entry". The guard continued to refuse entry without justification.

"To see young people involved with something so important right now - that gives a sense of hope", T.I. said.
