BREAKING NEWS: Tip’s Headed Back To The Clink For Almost A Year!!!

- By Bossip Staff

T.I. went to court ready to fight today! Six lawyers, two days off a random act of heroic kindness, interviews about how he’s been touched by God, a teary apology. He was READY!

He’s still going back to jail for being stupid though. U.S. District Judge Charles Pannell Jr. wasn’t about to let T.I. make a fool of him twice in one lifetime.

Declaring that T.I. “has had about the limit of second chances,” an angry federal judge on Friday sentenced the rapper and movie actor to 11 more months in prison for violating his probation.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., asked the court for leniency.

“I screwed up,” said the rapper, wearing a three-piece gray suit. “I screwed up bigtime, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”

*cough* Bullsh*t *cough*

But U.S. District Court Judge Charles Pannell Jr. was unmoved. Pannell noted that he had tried an extraordinary sentence with Harris, who was initially convicted of weaspons charges, by permitting him to stay out of prison while performing 1,000 hours of community service. The service consisted largely of visits with schoolchildren to speak out against violence, gangs and drugs.

“I think Mr. Harris has had about the limit of second chances,” Pannell said. “The worst thing is this case was an experiment.”

Pannell said he had hoped the idea would work and could be adapted for use in other cases. But then he looked at Harris and said:

“You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment.”

You big dummy! You just had to go and fawk up for everybody, huh?

T.I. was still on probation on federal weapons charges when he was arrested Sept. 1 in Los Angeles. He and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, were taken into custody during a traffic stop in West Hollywood in which deputies said they smelled a strong odor of marijuana from inside the car. They were soon released on bond.

After the arrest, a U.S. probation officer alleged that T.I. committed three violations of his supervised release from prison: possessing ecstasy, testing positive for opiates and associating with a convicted felon. Pannell then ordered T.I. to appear back before him in court on Friday.

U.S. Attorney Sally Yates had recommended that Harris be sent back to prison for two years. Steve Sadow, his lawyer, had asked that Harris be given at least six months of home confinement during which he would attend an inpatient drug rehabilitation program.

No word yet as to when or where T.I. will serve his next bid. Bet you he’ll think twice before riding dirty on probation again.

Way to be a stand up guy, buddy! What do you think is going through Piggy Tiny‘s mind right now?

      He is not dumb? Lol. You’re right. That was a intelligent decision he made, to get arrested after a few months after he got out of prison, even though he has, lord knows how may kids. He needs a prestigious award for his decision making skills because “he is not dumb”.

  • ignoranceisbliss

    TI got in trouble with the Federal government Lindsey got in trouble on a local manner so you can’t use the double standard method there boo boo. He ____ major sorry no racism in sentencing Feds don’t play no parole.

    He was put on a strict probation of 36 month ___ up and you going right back Ha Ha the idiot didn’t even make a year out.

  • atlanta's own

    wow. guess he’s had his “last second chance”… till next time…

  • T.T.

    I feel sorry for Tip and Tiny. Jail never cured an addiction. He should of received a drug rehabilitation program along with home confinement. Addiction cravings sometimes over rule common sense. Battling addiction is a disease. Doctors, lawyers, judges, The wealthy, the poor and people of every race and origin battle addictions. He needs help to break the cycle or it will continue, even after his stint in prison. This sentence is too harsh. Now Tiny has to explain to her young babies that Daddy will be gone again. So sad.

  • shaw

    In no way do I feel sorry for this fool.

  • Chocolate_Box

    This is very sad another successful black man down

  • T.T.

    There is no need to be abusive towards the man and his wife. Everyone makes foolish errors in their life. This one was costly. I don’t understand why some are gleeful by their distress? Did Tiny harm you personally. Did Tip threaten or harm you. No. so why so much venom? Your troubled hour may be near. I am sure you would like to hear positive, uplifting words, no matter how foolish you were instead of an angry mob hurling epithets, while belittling yourselves.

    • 8ESBABY

      I hear what you’re saying, but in this instance, TI screwed up once and was put on PROBATION only to turn around and screw up AGAIN! How can one give words of encouragement to a repeat offender???? I have a motto for people like him…”If they like it, I love it.”
