It’s barely been twenty-four hours, but rapper T.I. has already been sent back to prison. Why? Officials didn’t like the bus he took to get from the prison to the halfway house.
Meanwhile, the worst that’s happened to Lindsay Lohan from her jail sentence is an uneven tan line from the ankle monitor. Just putting that out there.
According to TMZ, T.I. was supposed to head to a halfway house from prison using a reasonable form of his own transportation. Law enforcement sources say that they allow a private, unescorted mode of transportation, and T.I. told them he would be taking some sort of van.
That van turned out to be a badass, pimped out tour bus. Come on, it’s T.I.! Cops need to understand, a man has to travel from a prison to a halfway house in style.
No drugs or alcohol were found on the bus, and apparently, when U.S. Marshalls arrived at the halfway house to take T.I. back to prison, the big boss at the house got into an argument with them. Even he thought it was a petty reason to sent T.I. back to jail.
Isn’t prison overcrowding still a thing? We really want to put someone in there for driving a tour bus that was too nice? That’s not going to make things easy for T.I., either.
CONVICTED MURDER: I killed three men with my bare hands and watched them die while their wives and children begged and cried for their lives. What you in for?
T.I.: My tour bus was too fancy.
And according to T.I.’s wife, multiple prison officials saw the rapper get picked up in the bus, and took photos with him. Nobody said anything.
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle tells TMZ that when the tour bus arrived at the Arkansas prison, officials, “walked him over, took pics and told him good luck in life.”
Tiny continues: “This is a bunch of bullsh-t ... they should have said something before he got on the bus ... T.I. would have politely gotten into a van."
She added: "T.I. is one of the strongest individuals I know ... and they just trying to break him in more ways than one and it's not gonna work! 'Cause what God got for him, can't no man take that away ... period!"
Let’s just hope what God has for him isn’t a tricked out tour bus.
