Rapper T.I. returned to federal prison in Atlanta
Thursday, September 1, 2011
ATLANTA (AP) -- Grammy-winning rapper T.I., who was moved to a halfway house this week after months in prison, is locked up again at a federal penitentiary.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons website Friday shows the rapper at the Atlanta penitentiary with a release date of Sept. 29.
The 30-year-old T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was released from a federal lockup in Arkansas on Wednesday and made the 375-mile trip to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach.
T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, said Thursday night that there was an issue involving his client's transportation.
Sadow said Friday there was never any intent to mislead or misstate T.I.'s method of transportation, and he hopes the issue can be cleared up quickly so T.I. can return to the halfway house.
