Rapper T.I. just can't seem to get a break.
Less than 24 hours after he scored an early release from an Arkansas minimum-security prison, federal agents remanded T.I. back into custody on Thursday because of an issue with his style of transportation to a halfway house in Atlanta.
CNN reported that agents took the rapper back into custody to question him about how he traveled from Arkansas to Atlanta.
T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, told the media that federal prison officials objected to T.I. using a tour bus to travel from Arkansas to Georgia.
T.I. was chauffeured on the more than 370-mile journey in style, complete with his entourage trailing in black SUVs. This didn't sit well with federal authorities who decided at the last minute to have the rapper serve out the remainder of his probation-violation sentence at an Atlanta prison instead.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, walked out of the Arkansas prison on Wednesday, tweeting The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!! He left the prison 10 months after he began serving a sentence for violating his parole on a gun conviction.
T.I. was expected to complete the last weeks of his sentence in a community service center, or halfway house, in Atlanta. The rapper agreed to provide his own transportation between the two locations, but officials are reviewing if riding in the tour bus, escorted by several private SUVs, violated his furlough agreement, Sadow told CNN.
T.I. got on the bus in full view of BOP employees, Sadow told CNN. If there was some confusion or misunderstanding surrounding the method of transportation, we hope to clear it up quickly so T.I. can return to the halfway house.
