T.I.'s lawyer is saying the rapper was wrongfully arrested when he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta early Wednesday.

T.I. - whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr. - is no stranger to crime, but he changed his life around and has mostly stayed away from legal trouble after serving several stints in federal prison. T.I. asked the guard, according to police. T.I. says that he yelled at the guard for sleeping, calling it "a very heated debate" but that he never got physical.

WSB-TV also reported that at some point, T.I. called an unnamed friend for help, but his friend was also apprehended when the cops arrived, as he had an outstanding warrant for his own arrest.

Atlanta entertainer T.I. has been arrested in Henry County.

Rapper T.I.'s attorney says his client was "wrongfully arrested" outside his gated community on disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and simple assault charges.

Last weekend, T.I. saluted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle with a Mother's Day shout-out.

Rapper T.I.is speaking out following his arrest in Georgia on Wednesday, insisting he was detained over bogus allegations.

Unfortunately, the Trap Muzik rapper is no stranger to arrests.

According to reports, the incident went down a few hours ago when a guard wouldn't allow Tip into the neighborhood without his key. "The guard refused entry".

"Tip was in contact with Tiny by phone and Tiny confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately", Sadow adds. He then called a friend, but that didn't help the situation, as both men began to argue with the security guard, which led to police officers being called.
