T.I. Claims Guard Who Called Cops On Him Cursed At His Wife

May 17, 2018 | Posted by Joseph Lee

As we previously reported, T.I. was arrested on charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. He was trying to get into his own gated community when he had a verbal altercation with the security guard. TMZ reports that TI claims that the guard cursed out his wife Tiny on the phone, which made things worse.

He claims that the guard left out details when police showed up: including that the guard was asleep. T.I. claims he had to wake him up at around 4 AM on Wednesday. While the police report says that the rapper told the guard to “hook him up”, he said he actually said “look me up.” When the guard couldn’t find him in the resident director, he had his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris call. Tiny then told the guard to “just let him in.”

The guard then allegedly replied: “Who the f*** do you think you is talking to me like this?

T.I. claims that’s when he lost it, and admits to cursing at him. He told the guard that he “pays him” and demanded to be let in. After the guard allowed it, TI demanded his name to report him but he wouldn’t give it, only staring with a “blank face.” He went home, calmed down and went back to get his name, but got nothing.

He said he told him: “You can step outside the booth into the street, so we can talk.” However he denies trying to make it physical.

The guard then later told police that he saw “a black male right in front of me in a striped shirt.” TI is upset that the officers spoke to the guard and his supervisor behind closed doors, then arrested him before asking for his part of the story. He said neither the police nor the supervisor looked at the surveillance video. He’s upset that the guard never gave his name nor accepted responsibility for his actions.
