Breaking News: T.I. Ordered to Serve 11 Months for Probation Violation

The ruling is in; T.I. will be heading back to prison for violating his probation. According to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, the rap star has been ordered to serve 11 more months behind bars.

The multi-platinum selling MC appeared in court this afternoon (October 15), where U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell, Jr. handed down his decision. The Associated Press reports that Tip pleaded with the judge not to send him back to prison, and said he needed help for his addiction to drugs.

“I want drugs out of my life,” he told the judge, according to U.S. attorney spokesman Patrick Crosby. “If I can get the treatment and counseling I need … I can beat this. I need help. For me, my mother, my kids, I need the court to give me mercy.”

Tip was able to leave the courtroom with his family. As of press time it is unknown when he will be returning to jail.

As previously reported, the Grand Hustle general got into this legal situation when he was arrested on September 1 in West Hollywood and brought up on drug charges, along with his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, breaking the terms of his probation, stemming from his 2009 federal gun conviction. This incident occurred just five months after being released from federal custody.

“I’m tired, I’m wore out,” Tip told CNN on Thursday. “I don’t have the age, the energy, or just the attitude to move forward and continuing in this cycle in this ongoing process of destruction and disparity in my life. I’ve got too many depending on me and counting on me. I can’t do it.”

As previously reported, T.I. helped to talk a potential suicidal jumper down from a 22-story building earlier this week. As he was leaving his house, the ATLien was said to have heard about the incident on the radio and wanted to lend a helping hand. Soon after the incident, Tip denied allegations that it was a publicity stunt leading up to today’s hearing.

    ain’t nothing but police blotter stuff on here today…

    even I typed on here that I didn’t think he would go back if he went to rehab or something…but there’s no need for a thesis on this…later Tip

    • Machete

      Am I the only one who is relieved and stupified at the same time on how he got off AGAIN. Its okay we know ALL them Rappers and rich folk (matter fact many poeple on general) are on drugs. Its the age and culture we live in, so don’t no one act all brand new as if its impossible to be in the same juxtaposition if they had his status. I think 11 months is going to hurt his brand considerably but damn, he can still remote control his label, besides he got BOB, his own album coming out. I am still amazed he just got 11 months. He walked out away eazy.

      • http://www.bboycult.com Don mcCaine

        You must have me twisted with someone else…’cause I thought wifey was gonna eat that food…and I was wrong.

        Again I ain’t gonna go into hyperspace building about this…but I do see the TIMEOUT he got, instead of his PUNISHMENT…

    Going back and forth to prison gets played out fast for anybody with sense. Keep ya head up man.

  • L Boogie

    I guess talking that dude off that building didn’t work out after all. This dude is fuccing his career off. I wonder how much time Tiny gonna get. Probably just probation or a fine.

  • Atlanta Is Full Of Fruits

    Don’t bitch up by saying you want drugs out your for the sake of your fam. IF that was true, you wouldn’t be messin with that extacy shit. OR at least be not stupid enough to get caught….dumbass. Hope he starts his bid soon as…AND as for those who think he’d been givin a bad rep……HE GOT OFF WHEN HE HAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF GUNS! WE would have gotten life…remember!

  • Jhon da Analyst

    When keeping it real goes wrong……..fuckin dummy!

  • http://twitter.com/Jamal7Mile Jamal7Mile

    Damn. Well it’s clearly a drug problem behind all of this madness. Admitting that he needs help and asking the judge for help was the smartest thing he’s done in a while. I had no ideal that drugs were THAT big of a problem in his life, I just thought that he was a dumbass. The best thing for him to do is to hit those NA meetings before, during and after his bid. He’s got way more than I do to lose and he must do what he needs to do to protect that.

    Good luck man.

        Some BS? The difference between him and that chick is that she’s not on probation for tryna purchase a gang of weapons. He’s lucky he keeps gettin’ off with a few months time, all the damn times he’s been caught up.

    Everyone makes mistakes. I’ve been down that road because of parole/probation violations. Yeah it’s stupid, but how many of us haven’t done something stupid. A lot of the time, your feeling pressure, and you make a bad decision to cope. 11 months is manageable, at least he didn’t get all of his back-up time. I’m confident he’ll do this, get out, and return to the top.

I’ve got too many depending on me and counting on me. I can’t do it”

    damn, SUX! not bad tho, not bad… bet sum haterz is mad lol….i was hoping it wasnt gonna be really bad…and tip might just pull a pac, i didnt wanna see it, but a #1 album in da country while in prison…tip was supposed to have already been thru dat stage, u could say da pac stage, but its his own stage…tip’s making his own stage and his own periods, it’s his life, not pac’s, he’s setting different standards, and things are happening we’re going to be talking about in 15 years: we’ll say do it like tip did it, like how now we say like ‘pac’ did it… but a #1 album while in prison is a PAC and it looks like it may happen, but fuck, da “king uncaged” aint gonna go as it was supposed to! maybe he will wait until he’s out again, but i dunno man…i want da music but i dunno…but happy with da outcome i guess… fuck
