Police say the rapper T.I. was arrested early Wednesday on disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and simple assault charges as he tried to enter his gated community outside Atlanta.

According to police, the guard at Eagles's Landing Country Club called police on T.I. and a friend.

United States net neutrality bill advances in the Senate
In surveys, solid majorities say they support the principle of net neutrality generally, and the FCC's rules in particular. Susan Collins (R-Maine) is the only Republican who has pledged to support net neutrality.

Rapper T.I. was arrested after returning to his home in Henry County, Georgia, in the wee hours of Wednesday morning on May 16, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution (AJC) reported.

T.I. - whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr. - is no stranger to crime, but he changed his life around and has mostly stayed away from legal trouble after serving several stints in federal prison. Sadow said that T.I. had a different version of events: that the guard was "asleep" when Harris arrived at the guardhouse to try to go home. He claims he did not assault the guard but that the guard "may have been hurt by my words". The rapper had allegedly forgotten his key but the security guard would not let him into the gated neighborhood, which resulted in an argument. The friend, who had a warrant out for his arrest from Clayton County, was arrested on that warrant. He says the rapper identified himself and sought entry, but the guard refused.

Senate hearing focuses on EPA Pruitt's spending
EPA Inspector General Arthur Elkins says in letters to Democratic senators that Pruitt himself initiated the 24-hour protection. Trump has remained publicly supportive of Pruitt, despite the consistent flood of scandals plaguing Pruitt and his department.

T.I.is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and "antagonized" him.

Sadow says T.I. contacted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who confirmed her husband should be allowed inside the community. T.I. believes when the truth comes out, the charges will be dropped.

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' is a long, boring space slog
This is how Solo was before the galaxy chewed up all the youthful optimism he had about life and spit him back out. The worst piece is the use of the words "mean streets" in describing the planet Solo grew up on.

After T.I. was released, he celebrated his son Major's 10th birthday at his school. During that argument, things got heated, TMZ said, and the police were eventually called. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. "When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing Tip's side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting Tip".
