Prosecutors in Henry County charged Tip with simple assault, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct stemming from his arrest back in May, when a security guard refused to let him into the premises. T.I.’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, tells TMZ the charges are “baseless, ill-founded and unjustified.”
Sadow also says the security guard, Euwan James, “was fired for the way he handled the situation with T.I.,” in a statement that was first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
As previously reported, James called 911 and said T.I. was threatening him and asking him to step outside of the guard shack.
A source with direct knowledge of the case tells TMZ that T.I. likely faces no jail time.
