T.I. Asks Officer Why He Was Arrested in Leaked Video

T.I., Kanye

A video of the rapper T.I. inside the jailhouse following his arrest for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct has leaked.

In a video obtained by TMZ, T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, is seen questioning the officer as to why he was arrested outside his gated community Atlanta community Wednesday morning.

“I can respect you and ask you a question as to why I was arrested,” T.I. said. The responding officer told him that he was arrested because he was “acting like a fool.”

The Atlanta rapper disputes the officer’s statement and the officer told him that the security guard did not have to answer any of his questions.

TMZ reported that the rapper wanted to fight the security guard after he refused to let him inside the gated community and confronted the guard once he was let in.

The officer told him that he should not have gone back to the security shack after he was allowed inside.

“I shouldn’t have came back?” the “Live your Life” performer said. “That’s my right as a tax paying citizen. Why did that constitute for me being arrested?”
