T.I. got busted at his own gated community in Georgia after he got into it with a security guard for the neighborhood.

At some point during T.I.'s heated discussion with the guard, the rapper called a friend, who arrived and joined the argument.

T.I.'s attorney, Steve Sadow, said in a statement that the rapper was "wrongfully arrested".

The Henry County Sheriff's Office said T.I. was cited on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after an alleged incident about 4 a.m.in Stockbridge, south of Atlanta. No word on whether "BBQ Becky" was the one working security at the gate.

Last weekend, T.I. saluted his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle with a Mother's Day shout-out. He claims he returned to his gated community after a recording session and found the guard asleep on the job.

"The guard continued to refuse entry without justification", the lawyer's statement said.

The artist tells us the security guard involved in the argument is black, which added to the frustration of the situation. The friend, who had a warrant out for his arrest from Clayton County, was arrested on that warrant.

"It took Tip some time to wake up the sleeping guard", Sadow wrote. Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry. Tips was in contact with "Tiny" by phone and "Tiny" confirmed that Tip should be let in immediately.

T.I., 37, allegedly didn't have his key and the guard would not let him in.

Both Holmes and T.I. were ultimately arrested.

After getting released from jail earlier, T.I. took to Instagram Live to share a heartfelt moment with his family. "I guess y'all been hearing all the nonsense", he said, wearing the same shirt he wore in his mugshot. He says the guard eventually called the police, but says the law enforcement near his home are "white cops in a very white area", and he was promptly arrested.
