Rapper T.I. Ordered To Report To Arkansas Prison

ATLANTA (AP) — Federal authorities have ordered the rapper T.I. to report directly to a federal prison in Arkansas by Nov. 1 to start serving his 11 month prison sentence.

U.S. Marshal Beverly Harvard on Tuesday ordered T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., to report to the Forrest City low-security prison where he served parts of an earlier 10 month stint for federal weapons charges.

A federal judge in Atlanta sentenced the rapper this month to serve another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal probation after he was arrested on Sept. 1 in Los Angeles on drug charges.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles said Monday they will not file a felony drug charge against the rapper.
