T.I. Accused by Prosecutors of Hurling Racial Slurs at Security Guard During Altercation

By TheBlast Staff

T.I. is being accused by Georgia prosecutors of screaming racial slurs at the security guard during the confrontation that ended with his arrest.

Recently, prosecutors filed amended charges against the rapper over an incident that happened earlier this year.

Back in May, the rapper was arrested for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness following an incident with a security guard, Euwan James, who works for the community where he lives.

T.I. told The Blast the incident was motivated by "white cops in a very white area." He also said he never laid a hand on the guard. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Last month, prosecutors dropped the simple assault charge against the rapper.

In the newly filed documents, they charged T.I. with a count of public drunkenness and three counts of disorderly conduct. In the court docs, the prosecutors claim the rapper was “yelling profanities at Mr. James, including cuss words and racial slurs, contrary to the laws of this state."

They claim the rapper told the guard during their tiff that he “had all night” and told the man that “nobody will get you out of this,” which allegedly made him in fear of his life.

A hearing has been set for later this month.
