T.I. received a bit of good news in regards to his dust up with security in his gated community a while back, which many say have racial undertones.
To jog your memory on the case, T.I. was arrested back in May after getting into it with the guy at the guard shack in his gated community outside Atlanta. The guard — who was guarding the back of his eyelids at the time T.I. came up — demanded to see ID and when the rapper couldn’t produce it the guard wouldn’t let him in.
At one point T.I. said repeatedly, “You’re making it worse for yourself, man … You’re gonna have to deal with me.” Apparently, cops took those words as a criminal threat (because a black man can’t use his fame to his advantage apparently) and arrested him for assault. So to be expected, those ridiculous charges were thrown out.
T.I. is not out of the woods, as he still faces 3 counts of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and one count of misdemeanor public drunkenness.
