Rapper T.I. Charged With Simple Assault, Public Drunkenness

Prosecutors have charged rapper T.I. with simple assault, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct after he was arrested outside of his gated community in Atlanta in May. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the accusations were filed by the county solicitor general’s office on Friday. The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, reportedly lost his key and got into an altercation with a security guard who “wouldn’t let him in the neighborhood” earlier this year. He was arrested on May 16 and released on bond shortly after. His attorney called the filing “baseless, ill-founded and unjustified.”
