T.I. Probation Violation? Tell It to the Judge

9/16/2010 9:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I. got word today that he needs to get his butt in front of a federal judge in Atlanta to explain why his probation should not be revoked after his L.A. drug bust.

A federal judge signed a summons today for the rapper -- real name Clifford Harris Jr. -- to appear in court. As TMZ first reported, Harris and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested earlier this month on the Sunset Strip for felony possession of a controlled substance.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I.'s probation officer also signed the summons and listed three possible violations: possession, testing positive for opiates, and association with a felon.

T.I. could be sent back to prison because he's still on federal probation for his 2009 gun possession conviction.

T.I.'s longtime attorney Dwight Thomas tells TMZ no date has been set for the hearing, but when it goes down T.I.'s legal team "will have an opportunity to present mitigating evidence or arguments on T.I.'s behalf."

More than likely, his attorneys will plead for "inpatient rehab" as opposed to a return to prison. Somehow, I don't see the court agreeing to rehab without making sure T.I. does some more prison time. He really should have known better. Now his family will more than likely receive "unannounced visits" from the department of family services. He brought this one upon himself and now his family will have to be "inconvenienced", too. I'm praying that the brotha can "get it together" and keep his priorities straight!!! I really wanted to believe that he had learned his lesson and now he's going to be "sent back to school" for a "refresher course" in wisdom.

STFU    

3 possible violations: possession, testing positive for opiates, and association with a felon (I guess his wife Tiny is the felon) a house full with criminals

pls put him in jail, this will show children that you will pay a price for doing drugs . had he been the average citizen he would get jail locked up NOW

Wonder if he asked his wife to take the charges for him. He appears to be that type of lowlife and his wife appears to be a lap dog for him.

a match made in h3ll

Short of absolute proof of his innocence there is nothing his lawyers should be able to present that would justify not revoking his probation.
