He was arrested for simple assault, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. T.I., as well as his friend, argued with the security guard because the “What You Know” rapper did not have his key and was denied access to the gated community.

Steve Sadow, who represents T.I., made a statement on his behalf Wednesday afternoon. "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. The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse. It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. The guard refused entry.”

"Tip was in contact with “Tiny” by phone and “Tiny” confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately,” he continued. "The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police. 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.”
