No Drug Charges for T.I…but still bye bye Birdie!

T.I. will not be prosecuted for the felony drug charges steaming from his arrest in September, according to reports. Prosecutors say the amount of drugs weren’t significant enough to press charges. However he will still be heading to the slammer.

T.I. headed to the slammer again

Law enforcement discovered four ecstasy pills on the ATL rapper when he was pulled over on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.

After serving a 10 month prison sentence for federal weapons charges, a Georgia judge sentenced T.I to another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal parole with this latest arrest.

According to the conditions of his parole T.I was to take at least three drug tests after his release and to actively participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program.

The day after the arrest, T.I. was ordered to take a drug test, in which he tested positive for marijuana and codeine, the key ingredient in lean.

The arrest and the positive drug tests were violations of T.I.’s parole from his previous arrest on gun charges, for which he spent 10 months behind bars.

T.I. begged the judge to have mercy, pleading that he has a drug problem and needs help, and saying that he “screwed up.”

The sentence comes only two days after T.I. talked a man down from jumping off a 22-story building.

Apparently in California, if you’re a white actress or hotel heiress/porn-star who has nothing to offer you get off easier than a black rapper who saves lives.
