He just got out … and now he’s right back in.
T.I. is back in the custody of the feds just days after being moved to a halfway house following his prison release earlier this week.
According to new reports from the Associated Press, the Grammy Award-winning rapper is locked up again at a federal penitentiary, due to a flap over using a luxury bus to transport himself 37 miles from the federal Arkansas prison to the halfway house in Atlanta.
T.I., who had been serving an 11-month prison sentence for violating his probation last year after he and his wife Tiny were arrested on drug charges, traveled on a bus with a large entourage to check into the halfway house upon being sprung from prison Wednesday (Aug 31).
T.I. (real name: Clifford Harris) stepped off the bus dressed in a red and blue striped polo shirt, white shorts and his signature rubber bands on his wrist.
The rapper’s attorney Steve Sadow told The Associated Press late Thursday (Sep 1) that federal officials “have moved T.I. to a different facility” because of a “transportation issue” involving his travel to the halfway house.
Federal authorities had no further information late Thursday night where Harris was taken. Traci Billingsley, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, told AP that she couldn’t comment on Tip’s status or his immediate whereabouts.
