T.I. can devote his full attention to Christmas shopping because he no longer has to worry about his assault case — it has been dismissed and reduced to a ticket.
The rapper’s lawyer, Steven Sadow, tells The Blast he was in court with T.I. on Thursday where he agreed to a sweet plea deal.
We’re told T.I. pled no contest to a city ordinance violation, which is basically cursing in public. He paid a $300 fine and all other charges were dropped.
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.
Prosecutors claimed 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.
