T.I. was originally released from prison on August 31, and traveled by bus to a halfway house where he was planning to serve the final month of his sentence. The Bureau of Prisons alleged that there were unauthorized people traveling with him and conducting business on the bus en route to the halfway house, which landed him back in the clink for two extra weeks until his release today. T.I.’s lawyer Steve Sadow, held fast that there were no rules stating who he could or could not travel with, despite the Bureau of Prisons claim to the contrary. Sadow explained today “He’s been returned to the halfway house. I think it’s because we took a proactive and assertive approach in bringing information to the attention of the Bureau of Prisons.” Sadow adds “I believe he was escorted by prison officials. It was kept under wraps until he got to the halfway house for security purposes.” T.I. is expected to be released from the halfway house on September 29.
