T.I. back in federal custody

    Just one day after his release from jail, rapper T.I. found himself back in federal custody.

    It was reported that T.I. arrived at an Atlanta halfway house in style, riding in a luxury bus that many celebrities use for touring. Apparently, that wasn’t the best mode of transportation.

    “We are awaiting the opportunity to quickly resolve whatever the issue may be that the Federal Bureau of Prisons has with T.I.’s method of transportation, bus, from Arkansas to Atlanta, so that T.I. can return to the halfway house to complete the remaining days of his sentence,” attorney Steve Sadow told RadarOnline.

    Although T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was released from prison on Wednesday, he was to serve the remainder of his 11-month sentence at the halfway house. His time there was expected to be chronicled in his upcoming VH1 series, but it turns out cameras aren’t allowed in the federal facility.

    “There is absolutely no way” cameras will film in the halfway house, a rep told TMZ.

    It’s unclear at this time whether the authorities are concerned about the reality show’s taping, nor is it clear why T.I.’s ride on the bus is an issue.

    “We don’t have any more details at this time,” Steve said.
