*T.I. is not going to be prosecuted for felony drug charges from his arrest last month on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. Prosecutors said the amount of drugs were not significant enough to press charges.
Deputies found four ecstasy pills on the Atlanta rapper when he was pulled over.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was on supervised release after serving 10 months in prison for federal weapons charges when he was arrested Sept. 1. A Georgia judge earlier this month sentenced him to another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal parole with the latest arrest.
As a condition of his release earlier this year, Harris was ordered not to commit another federal, state or local crime while on supervised release, or to illegally possess a controlled substance. He was also told to take at least three drug tests after his release and to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program.
“The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office’s decision to reject TI’s case was the right thing to do under the circumstances,” Harris’ attorney, Steve Sadow, wrote in an e-mail. He commended the office for “exercising its discretion to reject prosecution in light of the legal and factual issues involved.”
T.I. is expected to begin his 11-month sentence for violating his parole Nov. 1.
