The Atlanta rapper pleaded to a federal judge not to send him back to prison for violating his probation with a drug arrest, but to allow him to get help for his drug addiction.
“I screwed up big time and I am sorry,” T.I. said during his probation revocation hearing Friday afternoon. “I am sincerely sorry. I am scared that you will send me to prison.”
Tip, born Clifford Harris Jr., was in federal court Friday in Atlanta following his arrest last month in Los Angeles on suspicion of drug possession. He was on probation after serving 10 months behind bars on federal weapons charges.
