We reported how Tip rode to his halfway house in style after being released from his 10 month prison bid yesterday morning…and now he is being penalized for it! Apparently the prison officials at the halfway house he is at now did not appreciate that he used a tour bus to move between the facilities and it was a total deal-breaker. He is now being transferred to a different halfway house to serve the remainder of his 30 day sentence. Oh boy! Drama, drama, drama! Details after the jump.
The rapper had walked out of a federal prison in Arkansas on Wednesday morning, 10 months after he began serving a sentence for violating his parole on a gun conviction. He had been expected to complete the last weeks of his 11-month sentence in a community service center, or halfway house, in Atlanta.
Steve Sadow, T.I.’s attorney, said the issue that prompted his client’s latest move related to how the rapper got from the Federal Correctional Center in Forrest City, Arkansas, to Atlanta.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, had agreed to provide his own transportation between the two locales, but federal prison officials are reviewing how he got there — in a tour bus — according to Sadow.
A U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman told CNN Thursday night she was not immediately able to disclose where he was transfered.
