T.I. Removed from Halfway House Over Transportation Incident

Just one day after he was released from Forrest City Federal Prison in Arkansas, T.I. is back in hot water with the law.

As previously reported, Tip was freed from behind bars on Wednesday (August 31), one month earlier than his 11-month sentence on a probation violation for a 2009 gun conviction called for. He was to serve the remainder of his time in a halfway house in his hometown of Atlanta, but according to CNN law enforcement officials were unhappy with the way he in which travelled there.

Apparently, the rap star took a tour bus from Arkansas to the ATL, where he immediately began shooting his new VH1 reality show, which will chronicle his life after prison.

VH1 announced they will be filming a 10-episode series that will debut in December.

“Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most private and personal moments of one of today’s hottest, most sought after Grammy winning artists as he is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life,” a statement from the network read.

As of press time, it is uncertain where Tip will be headed. The Federal Bureau of Prison’s has him listed as “in transit.”

Stay tuned to as the story develops. —Elan Mancini
