Lawyer: Rapper T.I. back in federal custody  | accessAtlanta

'Cause this is silly. Over HOW he got to the halfway house? Word? C'mon man.... This is just like declaring a kid kicked off a team for eating peanut butter..smh

teve Sadow told The Associated Press that the Federal Bureau of Prisons "has moved T.I. to a different facility" because of an issue involving the rapper's 375-mile trip Wednesday from the Arkansas lockup to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach.

He did not elaborate on the exact nature of the problem federal authorities had, but said it was not drug-related. He said they are trying to resolve the problem.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, traveled with an entourage to check into the halfway house, stepping off the bus clad in a red and blue striped polo shirt and white shirts.

"There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of transportation," Sadow said.

Federal authorities had no further information late Thursday night where Harris was taken.

Traci Billingsley, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, told the AP that she couldn't comment on the rapper's status or his immediate whereabouts.
