The rapper TI has been arrested on disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and simple assault charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta, police have said.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, police say that T.I.at one point asked the guard, "Don't you know who I am?"

Police also say T.I. did NOT make physical contact with the security guard, but the guard feared he would be hit during the dispute.

T.I. was booked into the Henry County Jail for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness, records indicated. No word on whether "BBQ Becky" was the one working security at the gate.

T.I. has since spoken out on his arrest, telling The Blast that he believes the charges were racially motivated as local law enforcement are "white cops in a very white area".

Silva had previously claimed that Cobain's Martin D-18E from the famed performance was gifted to him by Bean as a wedding present. Frances' mother Courtney refuted Isaiah's story at the time, telling TMZ the instrument was "a treasured heirloom of the family".

"The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse", Sadow said, using the rapper's nickname. Police told the station Harris ha d forgotten his key and gotten into an argument with a guard who wouldn't let him in. Holmes was arrested on outstanding charges out of Clayton County and for not having proof of vehicle insurance.

T.I.is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and "antagonized" him. He says the rapper identified himself and sought entry, but the guard refused. He says he gave the guard "every opportunity" to apologize for sleeping, but the guy refused.

Wednesday after he bailed out, T.I. was able to spend some time with his family and celebrate his son Major's 10th birthday. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification.

"I was inconvenienced and arrested", he said. He then called a friend, but that didn't help the situation, as both men began to argue with the security guard, which led to police officers being called.

Sadow claims police did not want to hear from T.I.'s side and arrested his client.
