T.I. Back in Federal Custody After Failing to Disclose Pimp Ass Tour Bus Ride

by at . Comments

Only a day after T.I.'s release from prison, the rapper is already back in federal custody, and according to reports, it's all over a luxury tour bus incident.

Say what now?

The Federal Bureau of Prisons and T.I.'s lawyer Steve Sadow confirm he's back in custody after traveling from a federal Arkansas prison to an Atlanta halfway house on a PIMP ASS TOUR BUS, a method of transportation that did not sit well with officials.

Happy T.I.

T.I. was sentenced in October to 11 months in prison for violating probation, but was let out early to finish the rest of his sentence (and film a reality show, which officials are reportedly having none of now) in a halfway house.

However, he allegedly misled prison officials into thinking he'd be taking a low-key mode of transportation from the prison to the halfway house.

Guess a tricked out tour bus doesn't qualify a low-key.

The deal is this: When a prisoner is incarcerated in a low or medium security prison, officials do at times allow the inmate to use a private, unescorted mode of transportation to travel from the prison facility to the halfway house.

During the process of approving such a transfer, however, the prisoner must state specifically what mode of transportation he or she will be using.

Sources say that T.I. informed prison officials that he would be taking some sort of van, making no mention of the high-end, pimped out tour bus.

Prison officials felt that the rapper should've fully disclosed the nature of his party bus, and brought him back to Arkansas for this infraction alone.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were found on the bus.

Even more amazingly, when U.S. Marshals arrived at the halfway house to bring T.I. back to prison, the halfway house supervisor actually got into an argument with them, saying it was ridiculous to send him back for such a violation. 

In addition, T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle says that multiple prison officials actually saw the tour bus that picked him up - and took photos with him in front of it.

"They walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life," she says.

Nevertheless, the Marshals had their orders, and T.I. is back in prison.

His sentence is almost over in any case, so the oft-troubled star will be a free man again soon ... although he may want to call a cab next time.

Its ok when politicians use taxpayer paid helicopters for personal use but when a private citizen used a pimped out bus paid for by private money its bad. He went exactly where he was supposed to.


The government obviously was not aware he had intentions of filming a reality show at the half way house. Once they found out they had to shut it down and come up with a reason to put him back inside. Now he just serves out the rest of his sentence and no halfway house. It's the governments way of saying "fu*k you TI we aren't going to help you make money off going to prison". Has nothing to do with black or white.


Patricia, you should be very careful how you wish for the fate of others... ur time will soon come!


i think this is bs he was still gonna go were he was suppose to wether it was on a van, cab, airplane or his fuken tour buss. SMH.!


@patricia, STFU mann if you dont like T.I. watf are you doing reading his news for.


Give me a break. If he has the money and has earned it. He did his time what does it matter how he gets to the Half way house as long as he gets there. Black or White this is petty and we have bigger problems than how a rapper gets to his house, Halfway or Mansion. Focus people.


@ Patricia, are you kidding me? Lock him up for life? You are really one sick individual, you should be locked up in an insane asylum for making these idiotic comments.


Although i'm not a fan of his I feel that this matter of mode of transportation to the half way house is quite petty!!!! However having had prior dealings with the penal system myself i've learned thats it best go BY THE LETTER because you are at their mercy and trust me they do not play fair. Black or white really it not the WHOLE issue here because there is another for of injustice or prijudice directed at those with felonies or prior charges and people feel that you desire to be treated in this fashion because you a prior action or mistake.


Omfg !!?? R they fuc*in serious!!! They r ridiculous


What a bunch of bullsh''!!! Who has it out for him is what I want to know... Did anyone think that maybe he didn't know his family was going to do this? They should've never let him leave in it if they were just gonna throw him back in! He better not be the only person taking responsibility for this!
