Pullins and her piece parted ways after the incident.

"Ms. Pullins was transported to Clayton County jail and her weapon was taken to City of Atlanta Property," the report says.

She's since been released.

T.I., aka Clifford Harris Jr., has had his own brushes with the law. He  was on supervised release after serving 10 months in prison for federal weapons charges when he was arrested Sept. 1., 2010 on drug possession charges in Los Angeles. Authorities declined to press charges given the small amount found on him, but he was still sentenced to 11 more months on a parole violation.

T.I. is married to Pullins's mother, Tameka "Tiny" Harris. He is headlining Hot 107.9's 21st Birthday Bash at Philips Arena on Saturday night, the night after his new Atlanta strip club opens.
