Rapper T.I. Arrested in Atlanta

10/13/2007 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper T.I., whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., was arrested this afternoon in Atlanta. The ATF executed a search warrant at his home, and according to Atlanta's FOX 5 News, T.I., remains in custody.

The agencies at the scene of the federal search warrant include: The ATF, U.S. Marshals: Fugitive Task Force, Fulton County SWAT, Fulton County PD, Dekalb County PD, and the ATF/Atlanta PD Violent Crime Impact Team.

The U.S. Attorney's office will neither confirm nor deny anything about the investigation.

T.I. currently has a number of projects, including a movie with Denzel Washington set for November release, and he was slated to perform at tonight's BET Hip-Hop Awards, scheduled to air October 17. The rapper has nine nominations, more than any other artist at the event.

TMZ contacted T.I.'s rep, who had no statement at the time.

If you read about him on "Wikipedia", you will learn that he has a criminal history. He obviously hasn't grown out of it yet.

Why am I NOT surprised? Another one bites the dust. Arrest them all...throw away the key...and this will be a better world. Promise you. They're all total losers and ruining our youth and this society. Good riddens to bad rubish. And I do mean bad rubbish.
