T.I. Won't Be Charged in L.A. Drug Arrest

10/25/2010 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I. is finally getting a break -- TMZ has learned the L.A. County District Attorney has rejected the drug case stemming from his arrest last month ... and we're told there may have been legal problems with the case.

As TMZ first reported, T.I. and his wife were busted back on September 1 for possession of a controlled substance.

According to the D.A.'s Office, they are not going forward with charges because, in essence, he's already been sentenced to prison since the arrest was a violation of his federal probation.

However, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, there were significant legal issues over probable cause which led to T.I.'s arrest.

Cops claimed they smelled marijuana but no pot was ever booked into evidence.  And, we're told ...T.I. was pulled out of his $250,000 Maybach immediately after he made the illegal U-turn and prior to any registration check.

This is good news to hear I thinks it takes a real person to ask for help, and he should had been given that chance. Criminals should go to jail, addictions are a desease that can be treated. This is what should had happened for Ti, rehab.I support Ti and Tiny, and my prayers go up for them, there kids, and the entire family.

its crazy how he has to go back to jail but paris hilton gets fines and lindsey lohan constantly violates her probation but she gets rehab. Maybe if t.i was white or if he wasnt a rapper he wouldnt be goin thru this.
