His probation officer while he was going through prison sentence last year has summoned the rapper to return to Georgia to be processed.
Rapper T.I. has been summoned back to Atlanta, Georgia by his probation officer following his Wednesday, September 1 arrest on suspicion of drug possession, according to U.S. reports. The 29-year-old rapper and his wife, former Xscape singer Tameka Cottle, were taken into custody in West Hollywood after a sheriff's deputy allegedly smelled cannabis smoke coming from their vehicle during a traffic stop.
They were released in the early hours of Thursday, September 2 after posting $10,000 bail each. Officials are "in the process" of investigating the case as T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., is still on probation after spending six months behind bars on gun charges. He was released from prison in December and is reportedly subject to drugs counseling and random testing as part of his probation.
United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates tells TMZ.com, "The probation office is in the process of determining what happened and will make a recommendation regarding Mr. Harris when they have all the facts." And just hours after his release, T.I.'s probation officer demanded that the rapper return to Atlanta, where he usually resides, according to the website.
