The rapper was released from the Henry County Jail at about 8 a.m. Wednesday after posting a $2,250 bond. James told police he felt threatened and didn't know what Harris would do. According to the police report, dispatch heard T.I. yelling in the background.
T.I. makes his way to the ESPN set during the Atlanta Falcons' Super Bowl run in 2017.
The guard's version of events paints a different story, however. "T.I.is adamant that the guard was the aggressor and "antagonized" him". Media reports say the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris, lost his key and the guard wouldn't let him into the community.
Since his release, T.I. has addressed the issue in an Instagram livestream while attending his son's classroom birthday celebration in which he referred to the arrest as "nonsense" and "small potatoes."
T.I. went in but then walked back to the gate, and the guard told cops that's when T.I. began threatening him, saying, "Come outside so we can deal with this man to man. Let go in the street".
When officers questioned T.I. further about why he wanted the guard to come out of the shack, he said it was so he could explain "who he was".
T.I.'s most recent album, "Paperwork", arrived in 2014, but the rapper has been working on a new release, "The Dime Trap", that is expected this year.
Marquinarius Holmes, 40, of Stockbridge, who was with Harris at the time was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Clayton County and a charge of not having proof of auto insurance, according to police records.

On lap 25 Raikkonen seemed to lose power and soon dropped from second down to seventh, he would soon head into the garage. Kevin Magnussen claimed sixth place to underscore Haas's position as one of the leading contenders in the midfield.
T.I. is speaking out after being arrested while trying to enter the gated community he lives in.
His attorney insists that he was wrongfully arrested after returning to the Eagle's Landing Country Club community around 4 a.m.
In a statement given to Metro.co.uk, his attorney said: 'Tip was wrongfully arrested early this morning when he attempted to gain entrance into his gated community - where his wife "Tiny" and his family reside.
"The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse", Sadow said, using the rapper's nickname.
According to Sadow, T.I. had to call his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris to confirm his identity, after being refused entry by the guard. The guard continued to refuse entry without justification. "Words were exchanged and apparently the guard and/or a supervisor called the police", Sadow said. T.I. was taken into custody on misdemeanor charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and public drunkenness.
At the time he said seeing young people involved gives him hope. So, whatever they're concerned about right now, those are the things that stand the most opportunity for change.
