Feds Gunning for T.I.

TI-shadephotos.jpgThe feds are literally pulling out the big guns in an effort to convict T.I. of weapons charges.

According to papers filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, prosecutors will attempt to present evidence showing the hit-making emcee illegally possessed firearms three times prior to his highly publicized arrest last month.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the priors show T.I. has a history when it comes to illicit weapons.

The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., was nabbed for allegedly trying to purchase machine guns and silencers Oct. 13, just hours before a scheduled performance at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.

He has pleaded not guilty to two felony counts, possession of unregistered weapons and possession of firearms by a convicted felon. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine per count.

Judge Alan Baverman allowed T.I. released on $3 million bond and placed him under house arrest with 24-hour electronic and human monitoring until his trial.
