Troubled rapper T.I. will argue his case to remain a free man on October 15 when he's been summoned to court in Atlanta, Georgia, following his drug arrest in September. The "Live Your Life" hitmaker, real name Clifford Harris, Jr., was taken into custody with his wife Tameka Cottle aka Tiny after a West Hollywood police officer reportedly detected marijuana smoke emanating from their car during a traffic stop.

They were booked for felony possession of a controlled substance and bailed, but the run-in with the law could cost T.I. his freedom - he is currently on probation after completing a prison sentence for gun charges in December 2009.

The judge will decide whether or not to revoke the hip-hop star's probation during the court date later this month, reports

His lawyer should move to strike all the evidence because it is almost impossible to smell anything on a street with passing cars. His lawyer should reenact the scene and see if it was possible. What was the officer doing on the road? Sniffing for crimes? This is so bogus.
