Although cops alleged that rapper T.I. was drunk and disorderly during his arrest, a newly leaked jail video shows that the rapper was quite lucid, when he was questioning a police officer as to why he was arrested in the first place.

On Wednesday morning, T.I. (Clifford Harris) was arrested after trying to enter his gated community. In an interview with TMZ, Harris said the guard was sleeping at his post when he tried to gain entrance, and when the guard phoned his wife, Tiny, and she requested entrance to be granted, the guard cursed at her.

“Who the fuck do you think you is talking to me like this?” the guard allegedly yelled to Tiny.

Eventually Harris was let in, but when he asked for the guard’s name, he refused to give one. It wasn’t until Harris got back to his house, that he decided to return to the guard post to try to get his name again. But the guard refused and Harris told him, “You can step outside the booth into the street, so we can talk.”


In the leaked Henry County jail booking video, Harris is questioning the cop as to why he was arrested. When Harris asks why he was arrested, the cop replied, “For acting like a fool”.

Harris mentioned that he only asked for the security guard’s name, and said he had a right to return back to the guard post to ask a question because he pays millions of dollars to live in the community.

“You shouldna came back,” the cop replied.

Harris then said the cop will be answering questions for his lawyer eventually.
