T.I. was busted last month on felony possession of a controlled substance ... while he was on probation for a 2009 federal gun possession conviction.

T.I. told the judge he needed help for drug addiction and begged not to be sent back to prison.

We're told one of the officers from Wednesday's jumper incident testified on T.I.'s behalf.

He has two weeks to turn himself in.

Are all of these people that stupid who keep bringing up Lohan and Hilton and playing the black crap race card. Misdemeanors Vs. "Convicted Felon" on Felony Probation now busted for felony drug charges. Lohan and Hilton spent time "Jail" (I agree not long enough) This guy is going to "Prison" Play the race crap all you wan't He is still a CONVICTED FELON.

FELONY IS FEDERAL...THAT MEANS NATIONWIDE. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STATE YOU ARE CAUGHT IN. You get busted anywhere anytime, that's it.

This guy is getting 11 months AND HAS 2 weeks to TURN HIMSELF IN. Please, enough already with the comparisions to Hilton and Lohan. How can you not understand the difference? Race has nothing to do with this.

I am restating my earlier post.

Hilton and Lohan, those 2 morons got lucky but the BIG DIFFERENCE THEY WERE MISDEMEANORS. This clown just got CONVICTED FOR FELONY GUN POSSESSION. Now busted for FELONY POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE while on Felony Probation.

C'mon, you know Felony Charges are a whole different ballgame with different rules.

Black, White or whatever doesn't matter. He got caught.

@bboy(item 87)...

You said ,
" for a small amount of personal use drugs?! sucks to be black...and people had the nerve to get mad when OJ got off?!"

I say,
" It does not suck being Black. It is a blessing to be a part of such a gifted and beautiful race of people who have contributed so much to the world, and who are the mother race of Homo Sapiens.

What sucks is the racism against them that has evolved over the years ! "

And yet Lindsay Lohan is making a mockery of the justice system for the same thing. She gets jail and is out within days - she lies to the court and is forgiven altogether. Why? What is the diff between TI and her? Not one damn thing.

Well, he knew what the consequences would be so it should be no surprise. But still, he should be sent to rehab not jail. If they did it for Lindsay they can do it for him.

He was convicted in the Federal Court and violated his terms of probation. The Feds have mandatory sentencing so it's completely different from the States. Even if he was white or another race he would've been given the same sentence. I work for the Feds I know what I'm talking about.

JLS-Uh yes there is a HUGE difference between him and Lindsay, he was on probation for a FELONY CHARGE of carrying illegal firearms, Lindsay's crimes were all misdemeanors, if you break the law when you're being watched by the feds, the consequences are MUCH more severe then if you violate probation for a misdemeanor charge like LL did(also keep in mind he was tried in Atlanta, which unlike L.A. is not known for giving celebrities a slap on the wrist, if TI was tried in L.A. i highly doubt he would've gotten sentenced for that long, and if Lindsay was being tried for a federal offense in Atlanta they certainly wouldn't go easy on her either) Ok maybe 11 months is a tad much, but TI still should've had enough common sense not to do something this stupid, especially not when he's on Federal probation with 3 kids to look after, I wonder what his kids think of him now.
