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. you are dumb ass! First let me say I'm black so what I'm about to write is not coming from some racist. So here I go; you southern rappers (notice I wrote rappers and not hip hop artist) are modern day minstrels. You all have destroyed rap music which is rhythm and poetry and turned it to crap! Lil Wayne, Luda, and the rest of you talk about sizzerp (a drink with codeine). A southern rapper / DJ died from that and so did Pimp C. You lectured at schools and had a TV show before you were arrested to help the youth and you talked a good game. You were released and were on TV (Larry King) and lectured in schools. Plain and simple you are all ignorant. You’re wealthy but you all have no since of how ignorant you all are truly and you all should be pitied, again you are all minstrels. Now you just jeopardized your family and minstrel career. And you girl she has been in trouble too, your both just plain dumb. Driving around town with drugs you are really dumb!

Dang he can't stay out of jail. I hate using this word because whites have used to slander my people for 100 or years but this is one dumb *****.

I mean he has a movie coming out he has a wife who loves him, he gets probation then he goes and does some dumb stuff like this.

He deserves to go back to jail. He's too stupid to function outside of jail.

whether there were other people in the car or not; if he was read his parole terms correctly, he would know what his limitations were to be...and he just didn't care. So now a judge will have a same view...the judge doesn't care if he goes back to jail, which he probably will.

i swear...what is wrong with the press? they can not figure out jail from prison or parole from probation. PRISON =PAROLE...JAIL = PROBATION!!!! HUGE DIFFRENCE. Not in that order non-research boy. THESE ARE BIG TERMS. This is your story. Copy it correctly. Atypical..."Paris has a hang nail and was busted...surely to do 6 months on parole."
