After T.I. woke up the guard and asked to be let in because he didn't have his keys, James initially refused, the report states. Sadow said the guard refused to allow T.I. entry, even after the rapper contacted his wife, Xscape member Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, who confirmed her husband's identity. Afterwards the rapper was still upset and went back to the guard shack and demanded to speak to his supervisor, who had called the police about the matter. He then returned to confront the guard again, which was when the cops were called. TMZ was told that while T.I. didn't physically hurt the guard, the guard was afraid that Tip would hit him during the argument.

Despite the headline-generating bust, Tip didn't spend much time in police custody or have to stand before a judge. "Tip clearly identified himself and sought entry", his attorney Steve Sadow wrote on Facebook. The guard was sound asleep when Tip arrived at the guardhouse. He said. "With all we done been through man, this is small potatoes, man. When the police arrived, they were not interested in hearing [T.I.]'s side of the story and wrongfully chose to end the situation by arresting [him]".
