Rapper T.I. to return to federal court Oct. 15
ATLANTA — Rapper T.I. is headed back to federal court in Atlanta next week to explain why his probation shouldn’t be revoked after his recent arrest in Los Angeles.
U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. has set the hearing for 2 p.m. on Oct. 15 for T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris. The same judge sentenced Harris for firearms violations.
An earlier summons signed by Pannell lists three possible violations of his bond: possession of the drug ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials say the Grammy award-winning rapper was stopped Sept. 1 on a Hollywood street after making an illegal U-turn. Police say they found several pills confirmed to be a controlled substance.
