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.

Well this goes to show all of america again, that if you are a celebrity or hang out with one then you can break the law and get away with it.I always thought that if you were on probation at the time of the arrest that it automatically makes it a new charge and you can't post bail untill u see the judge and your probation officer.Well i gues if you have money u can bye you way out of anything.Is it just me or is it special treatment for the wealthy. All I can say is Bull***t for celebritys and there power trips with money.

Personally, I will wait until all the facts are in. It seems pretty strange to me that he was pulled over for an illegal u-turn. The police checked his car because they smelled weed. Funny thing is there was never no mention of finding any weed. No bong, no roaches, no weed. If they smelled weed there should be evidence of weed in the car, if there was none, and they have a good lawyer, everything else can be thrown out, because of an illegal search, therefore no case. In the end where there is a case or not, doesnt effect my day.

I'm a BIG fan of T.I, but if you ask me, I think it's a SET UP!!! Orchestrated by his team. Why weren't there any pictures of T.I getting arrested at the time of the arrest. I'm not doubting that he was there, but T.I is TOO smart of a man to get himself involved in something this dumb, this soon. And it's a coincidence that his movie just came out, and his album will be coming out shortly. Is this a way to "pull the wool over our heads", especially because people are saying he's "too soft" since being released from prison, could he be trying to prove to us that he's still a "bad boy"? I could be TOTALLY wrong, but I believe this man is too smart, or either dumb as rocks to jeopardize his freedom for something this dumb. Especially when his original reason for purchasing all of that heavy artillery was to protect his family, why would he risk being away from them by being sent back to prison for something so dumb?...

You can count on TMZ to allow illiterate inbreds to use a racial slap. The reality is , the man is wrong AGAIN, BUT there exist the possibility that he was not using or had anything, mind you they did not find it on his person. If the did a piss test or any other toxicology you KNOW they would have said it. I suspect what they smelt was new car leather from the MAYBAUCH. I know you dump truck drivers never smelt that ( GET MY MEANING PAL). There has been may occasion where in LA you are stop because of , DWB, DWM,DWA. Where he and she bear the responsibility is that in his situation EVERYONE in the car should know better and if they don't there is no way in the hell they should be in there.But LA is known to plant evidence even when they don't have to.Lets wait and see. If in fact he is totally guilty then those closest to him, his family, fans. business partners,and constituency are going to unload him trust me. But that is there place not someone who drives a pickup and doesn't know what a new car smells like. ( LOL) As for 66 and 67 we see you and its ugly. Throw a rock and hide your hand falls under being a coward. Being that small minded to express yourself falls under "You aint ****". As for everyone else ..what can I say, the disappointment of the possibility is clear and indisputable. As for 68 i feel you,but, it is not necessarily ignorance, it is economics and environment. It is also the world we live in that has created a free for all but it aint free for all of us. You see and this is reality the rules are really different. We all black and white that have rooted for TI to make it want to kick him in his ass right now. He is bright and talented but he better take the blinders off, if he doesn't its about to get medieval in here not to mention lonely.

COMMON SENSE    

WOW!!! CHILDREN... REALLY??? THE AMERICAN LEGAL SYSTEM IS COMPLETE FASCIST SYSTEM SET UP SO THAT THOSE WHO GET CAUGHT IN IT DONT HAVE A CHANCE OF EVER STAYING OUT OF IT. THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS FAILED FROM THE START. HE SHOULD GET A FINE FOR THE U TURN AND A SLAP ACROSS THE FACE FOR MARRYING THAT UGLY WOMAN.... BUT BESIDES THAT ALL OF YOU CHILD MINDED, BRAINWASHED DROWNS SHOULD REALIZE THAT WHATEVER HARM A PERSON WANTS TO DO TO THEMSELVES IS THEIR OWN BUSINESS. HE'S A GROWN MAN AND A SUCCESSFUL PERSON. IF HE WANTS TO TAKE A LEGAL DRUG (ALCOHOL) OR AN "ILLEGAL" DRUG. THAT'S HIS BUSINESS. BTW... I DON'T EVEN LIKE T.I. BUT ITS JUST COMMON SENSE.. HE SHOULD NOT GO TO JAIL. NOR SHOULD ANYBODY WHO IS IN PRISON FOR A SMALL AMOUNT OF DRUGS.

WHAT THE HECK?? That is all i can say. T.I. just got out of prison not too long ago and he is violating probation already? come on now T.I. you had your own show trying to show kids to stay out of trouble when you can't stay out of trouble yourself. I was rooting for you when you were going through trial for your weapons charges and now you get in trouble again. You said it yourself "take responsibility for your actions, own up to what you did" do your time......DAMN :(
