Police tell Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB-TV that T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr.

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

The security guard positioned at the front gate would not let him past his checkpoint. 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. New reports claim T.I. found himself in handcuffs Wednesday (May 16) after getting into a heated argument with a security guard at his gated Georgia community.

T.I. has since spoken out on his arrest, telling The Blast that he believes the charges were racially motivated as local law enforcement are "white cops in a very white area".

T.I.is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and "antagonized" him.

Despite the headline-generating bust, Tip didn't spend much time in police custody or have to stand before a judge. "The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse". The friend, who had a warrant out for his arrest from Clayton County, was arrested on that warrant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ About four hours later, T.I. was released after posting a $2,250 bond and made it home just in time to celebrate his son's birthday. The rapper contacted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who confirmed that her husband should be allowed inside the community. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification.

"To see young people involved with something so important right now - that gives a sense of hope", T.I. said. Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police.

We're told T.I. plans on pursuing legal action against his HOA for the incident with the guard.
