T.I. Arrest -- Probation Violation Probe Underway

9/2/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... federal officials are "in the process" of determining if they will try to revoke T.I.'s probation in the wake of his arrest late last night.

TI Arrested

As we first reported, T.I. -- who is still on probation for illegally possessing machine guns a few years ago --  was arrested again last night for possession of a controlled substance on the Sunset Strip.

Now, United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates tells us, "The probation office is in the process of determining what happened and will make a recommendation regarding Mr. Harris when they have all the facts."

If officials determine T.I. did violate his probation, he could be sent back to the slammer to serve some serious prison time.

UPDATE: We're told T.I.'s probation officer has asked the rapper to return to Atlanta.

T.I. When are you going to learn what law category you fall into. If you don;t know, let me tell you: 1 for the average white, 1 for the average black, 1 for white celebrites and 1 for black celebrities. You ain't LiLo or Paris!! I mean, it took 3 years of constant probation violation for LiLo to get 14 days in jail and Paris keeps getting away with it by saying it wasn't hers. You a black celebrity!! If you don't know what that means, call Lil wayne and ask him!!

@Tammy
Are you serious ?
T.I was facing 10 years and got a plea deal were he served less than a year.
He was a convicted felon and before he became really big he even filmed one of his music videos in prison.
It is nothing to do with race T.I was given a chance and he blew it.

Paris had a bit of weed in South Africa and France were you get FINES.
Lindsay had 2 DUIs which are non violent misdemeanors and went to rehab, did community service etc.

Nicole, if T.I. wasn't black, 10 years wouldn't even be on the table!! Think about Paris's recent situation: the penalty range for her offense is probation to 4 years in jail. Do you think 4 years is on the table for Paris? Do you think any jail time is on the table for Paris? In the USA, a black person and a white person can commit the same crime, but the penalty possibilities are nowhere the same for both.
