"Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community - where his wife "Tiny" and his family reside", the statement reads.

His attorney, Steve Sadow, released a statement saying the rapper was wrongfully arrested. "The guard continued to refuse entry without justification". He says he gave the guard "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused. "When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip".

T.I. has since addressed the arrest in an Instagram Live video while celebrating his youngest son Major's 10th birthday, calling it "nonsense" and "small potatoes," adding that God "will deal with the craziness".
