Rapper, T.I. has been slapped with misdemeanor charges of simple assault, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct following a fall out with a security guard back in May.
Prosecutors in Henry County charged the rapper with simple assault, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct stemming from his arrest back in May, when a security guard refused to let him into the premises.
T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, in a statement says the charges are “baseless, ill-founded and unjustified.”
“T.I. never threatened or acted in a violent manner towards Euwan James, the security guard,” Sadow said.
“Indeed, we understand the security guard was fired for the way he handled the situation with T.I. We had sincerely hoped that the Henry County Solicitor had better, more important, things to do to serve the Henry County community than prosecute an African American over a verbal dispute during an encounter with a security guard who was asleep at his post and was unwilling to provide his name to T.I. so T.I. could report the guard’s misconduct to his employer.”
