ATLANTA, Georgia — Just two days after rapper T.I. saved a man from jumping 22-stories, a federal judge revoked his probation and sentenced him to 11-months in prison following an arrest for possession of a controlled substance last month.
During Friday’s probation hearing, T.I. whose real name is, Clifford Harris, told judge Pannell Jr.
“I screwed up. I screwed up big time, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.”
Harris went on to say that he needed help for his drug addiction not more jail time.
However, judge Pannell Jr. was unmoved, stating “The worst thing is this case was an experiment. You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment.
The hip-hop star and his wife were arrested last month in Los Angeles following a traffic stop where cops found the multi-platinum selling rapper in possession of a controlled substance, a felony.
At the time of his arrest, T.I. was on probation for a 2009 federal gun possession conviction.
An officer from the Wednesday’s jumper incident testified on T.I.’s behalf, which did little to impress judge Pannell, who gave Harris two-weeks to surrender to authorities.
