• T.I. released from halfway house


    ATLANTA,None - After nearly a year in prison and a couple weeks at an Atlanta halfway house, rapper T.I. was free again Thursday, his attorney Steve Sadow told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

    T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was arrested in September 2010 in Los Angeles on drug charges. He was sentenced to 11 months in prison for violating the terms of the probation he received after he was convicted of federal firearms charges.

    He was released from an Arkansas prison and sent to the halfway house on Aug. 31, put back in federal lock-up over a dispute with prison officials, and then returned to the halfway house Sept. 15.
