They are asking for 12,000 signatures. As of Saturday afternoon, they had garnered more than 11,700 supporters.
Via a live Instagram video, T.I. labeled the arrest “nonsense” and “small potatoes,” adding that God will take care of it. And his attorney Steve Sadow said his client “was wrongfully arrested.”
The incident occurred after T.I. arrived at the gate outside his community to find the security guard sleeping. While the guard initially refused to let the rapper in, he eventually admitted him, according to an incident report from Henry County police.
T.I. then walked from his home back to the guard booth — a distance of more than a half-mile — and began to argue again with the guard, who called police.
He was released from the Henry County Jail about 8 a.m. Wednesday after posting $2,250 bond.
