Well this is certainly a strange turn of events. Rapper T.I. had his probation revoked two weeks ago for possession of drugs in California and was sentenced to return to prison. He’s still going to the slammer for a probation violation but the Cali case has definitely fallen apart.

The new possession charges have been dropped against him because proper procedures weren’t followed in the arrest. Police didn’t have any evidence of marijuana when they made T.I. step out of his vehicle, even before asking him for identification. These rights violations have saved his skin on additional legal woes.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and T.I. were booked on September 1st after they made an illegal U turn. That moving violation got much worse after police searched the vehicle. They were released on $10,000 bond.

Because T.I. violated his probation by failing a drug test, he is still headed back to prison next week.
