T.I.
was hauled back to prison because prison officials believed he had people from his reality show on the bus that took him to his halfway house ... this according to official documents obtained by TMZ.

According to the incident report, when T.I. was released from prison on August 31, he was under specific instructions to be transported to his halfway house -- where he would serve the remaining 30 days of his sentence -- but he could ONLY travel with his wife ... and he wasn't allowed to conduct business on the bus.

The VH1 producers and T.I.'s manager have submitted letters claiming they were not conducting business, but prison officials didn't buy it.

TI back in jail? What a surprise. Maybe he should start figuring out how to follow the law. Just a thought.

A bunch a BS if U ask me. As many times as Celebrities get away with other things, they are gonna send him back for something so stupid as to getting on a bus with his crew instead of taking the van. I know rules are rules but whats the point of rules and laws if everyone dont have to follow them

Right, I'm sure two VH1 officials were there just for moral support. Just how stupid does he really thing prison officials are? Apparently not nearly as stupid as him. He'll serve his remaining 30 days, get out, and go right back in for another year for doing something else idiotic. What a waste.

"but he could ONLY travel with his wife ... and he wasn't allowed to conduct business on the bus."........I read the T.I. post AFTER this post FIRST and blamed prison officials for not being clear on who he could or couldn't have on the bus......my bad.

So let me get this right.... After you're put in jail and UNABLE to work because of it, or conduct any business, you are released on parole/probation and you're STILL not allowed to engage in business??? Am I the only wondering why our economy suffers when people who are imprisoned aren't allowed to contribute to our economy??
