T.I. Summoned To Court For Drug Arrest Hearing

Embattled rapper T.I. will have to plead his case to a U.S. District Court Judge now that he has been ordered to appear in court.

T.I. and wife Tomeka “Tiny” Cottle was arrested earlier this month after being found in possession of marijuana, ecstasy and codeine. The arrest resulted in violations of his probation stemming from his March 2009 incarceration for unlawful weapons possession by a felon.

According to a summons filed Thursday in Atlanta, T.I.’s probation officer Jack D. Briscoe says the rapper violated his probation through possession and use of a controlled substance, including marijuana, ecstasy and codeine which he tested positive for in L.A.

Additionally the summons says Tip was in violation for commission of a state crime for ecstasy possession; a felony in California, and for associating with Cortez Thomas, a convicted felon.

When T.I. appears in court he will have to tell U.S. District Court Judge Charles Parnell why his supervised release should not be revoked.
