T.I. Denied Bond, Will Remain Behind Bars for Now
T.I. was denied bond during his appearance in federal court this afternoon. The rapper was arrested on Saturday afternoon on federal weapons charges. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Tip appeared before U.S. Magistrate Alan Baverman with his hands and legs shackled, and answered “Yes, sir,” and “Yes, your honor,” when asked if he understood his charges. He reportedly made eye contact with family members who were present in the standing room only courtroom. Prosecutors have asked the judge to hold Tip without bail until his trial, which could take several months to get under way. Baverman scheduled a hearing for Friday to determine whether there was probable cause for the rapper’s arrest and whether or not he will qualify for bond.
