ALMOST HOME...T.J. Lands in Halfway House to Finish Prison Stint

Rapper T.I. is back at a halfway house in Atlanta after weeks of fighting with federal prison officials who were miffed that his travel companions included a TV producer and a a manager upon his release from an Arkansas prison, according to his attorney.

On August 31st he was released from the Arkansas prison and sent to the halfway house, a month before his sentence for probation violation was up. But one day later he was back in federal custody after corrections authorities accused him of violating prison rules by discussing business deals with the two during his 375-mile journey to Atlanta.

T.I. will now stay at the Atlanta halfway house through Sept. 29, when his prison term ends. After that, T.I. will be home free.
