T.I. Locked Up Again After Using Luxury Bus to Halfway House

This is not how T.I. wanted his new life to begin! Billboard reports that the rapper, just released to a halfway house on Wednesday after 11 months in prison, is now back in jail due to a mix-up that his lawyer blames on transportation issues.

T.I. was released from an Arkansas prison and took a luxury bus for the nearly 400-mile journey to the halfway house in his hometown of Atlanta. As a result, Billboard says he has now been moved to an Atlanta penitentiary with an expected release date of Sept. 29.

The rapper’s attorney, Steve Sadow, said, “There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of transportation,” and added that he is working to remedy the situation. Sending T.I. back to prison for taking a luxury bus to a halfway house seems harsh, but Sadow told CNN that officials are looking into whether taking the motor coach, with an escort of several SUVs, may have violated T.I.’s furlough agreement.

It was just two days ago that T.I. sent out his first tweets as a free man, writing, “The storm is over & da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!” He also announced a book deal and a VH1 reality series, which will probably have plenty of interesting footage if the cameras were rolling during these new developments.
