T.I. Removed From Prison, Back In Halfway House

UPDATE: Tip has been released from prison and will serve the rest of his sentence in a halfway house.

Upon his release from prison on August 31st, T.I. announced that he would be filming a reality show for VH1 - but that’s supposedly the reason that he was forced back to jail.

According to TMZ, prison officials believed he had people from his reality show on his luxury bus that transported him from jail to his halfway house. Documents state that Tip was only allowed to travel with his wife and was not permitted to conduct business on the bus.

Officials claim that two VH1 producers and his manager were on the bus discussing business. Despite the producers and manager submitting letters stating the opposite, the prison did not believe them.

Tip is currently scheduled for release from prison on September 29th.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, T.I. was just released from prison to serve the rest of his sentence in his halfway house.

"We have good reason to believe that this favorable result was reached because of the proactive and assertive approach taken to protect T.I.'s rights by providing B.O.P officials and the media with reliable and accurate information and that T.I. did not intend to violate his transfer furlough or any other B.O.P rules en route from the prison facility in Arkansas to the halfway house in Atlanta," said his lawyer, Steve Sadow.

Tip will complete his sentence on September 29th, and will remain under supervised probation for one year.
