T.I. sent back to jail even after helping jumper




Helping police talk a suicidal would-be jumper off the ledge of an Atlanta skyscraper early last week wasn't enough to save T.I. from going back to prison. A judge sent the rapper back to the clink for 11 months for violating probation, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. At least he has a positive story to tell the other inmates.

"I think Mr. Harris had had about the limit of second chances," U.S. District Court Judge Charles Pannell Jr. said in court, revoking Clifford Harris Jr.'s probation on federal weapons charges. T.I. tried to sound contrite, but it didn't help.

"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," T.I. told the judge, He had already served 10 months of his sentence, but Pannell didn't care, saying his probation had failed: "You certainly dumped a lot of smut on the whole experiment," Pannell said. T.I. had been accused of using X and submitted diluted drug samples. He has until Nov. 1 to report to prison.
