T.I. Back at Halfway House

T.I. is now back at a halfway house in Atlanta after weeks of battles with federal prison officials who were upset he traveled with a TV producer and a manager when he was released from an Arkansas prison to go to a halfway house in the first place. That was against the rules, rules they didn't know, the lawyer said.
T.I. was initially released from the Arkansas prison and sent to the halfway house on Aug. 31, a month before his year-long sentence for probation violation was up. A day later, he found himself back in federal custody after corrections authorities accused him of violating prison rules by discussing business deals with the producer and his manager during his 375-mile journey to Atlanta.
Attorney Steve Sadow argued that the rapper didn't break any rules because a VH1 reality show and book deal that was announced within hours of his release had actually been finalized months earlier. So he technically did not break any rules.
Are you psyched for T.I.'s return to the free world?
