T.I. Removed From Halfway House Back To Prison

September 2, 2011

 

UPDATE: Prison officials took issue with Tip’s mode of transportation from prison to home and have hauled him back to jail.

Only a day after his release from Federal Correctional Center in Forrest City, Arkansas to a halfway house in Atlanta, Georgia, T.I. has been removed to a “different facility” because prison officials objected to his using a tour bus to move between locations. He is now in federal custody.

According to CNN.com, Tip had agreed to provide his own transportation from the prison to his halfway home, but now federal prison officials are reviewing how got there – by tour bus.

A U.S. Bureau of Prison spokeswoman said she could not yet disclose where T.I. was transferred.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, T.I. allegedly misled prison officials into thinking his mode of transportation from prison to his halfway home would be “low-key,” along the lines of a van. Instead, he took a luxury bus to his house, which the prison didn’t consider “low-key.”

When U.S. Marshals arrived to take him back to jail, Tip supposedly mouthed off at them for catching him on such a “ridiculous violation.” He is currently being held in federal custody.
