T.I. arrives for VH1's Hip Hop Honors The 90's Game Changers at Paramount Studios on Sept. 17 2017 in Hollywood Calif

U.S. rapper TI has been arrested on disorderly conduct and public drunkenness charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta. The rapper allegedly confronted a security guard for the neighborhood after he tried to get back into the neighborhood but didn't have his keys. It's unknown whether the guard was simply following protocol or was unable to identify the person he was sworn to protect.

T.I. says he called out the guard for sleeping on the job and an argument ensued between the two. The guard feigned indifference.

T.I.is one of the biggest names in hip-hop, with multiple platinum-selling albums and singles, production credits and roles in films like "ATL" and "American Gangster". The altercation seems to have escalated at this very point, as both T.I. and his friend were taken into custody shortly thereafter. In an Instagram Live video, T.I. said he was "looking like yesterday" at a birthday party for his 10-year-old son, Major. T.I. was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness and has since been released. You can preview his cheeky mugshot here. Because T.I. owns property in the community, the guard should have allowed him inside without issue.

"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", his attorney Steve Sadow tells People magazine. He says he gave the guard "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused. "The guard refused entry". He says the guard eventually called the police, but says the law enforcement near his home are "white cops in a very white area", and he was promptly arrested. "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".
