T.I. Returned to Federal Custody

Grammy Award-winning rapper T.I. was back behind bars just two days after his release from federal prison! Why? Because officials took umbrage with the way that he was transported from prison in Arkansas to a halfway house.
T.I. was slated to spend the final month of his 11-month sentence in a residential transition facility, prison officials said earlier in the week. However, prisons spokesman Chris Burke confirmed on Friday that T.I. had instead been incarcerated in a federal prison in Atlanta but said he did not know the reason why. The rapper's release date from prison is now Sept. 29, Burke said, according to Reuters.
According to Steve Sadow, T.I.'s attorney, prison officials had an "issue" with the bus the entertainer used to travel from Arkansas to Atlanta.
"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," Sadow said in an email to Reuters.
Damn, poor T.I. His taste of freedom was so short-lived and with quite a bitter after taste.
What do you think of T.I.'s "ride" issues?
