T.I. arraigned on weapons charges

ATLANTA , Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Rapper T.I. will remain in a Georgia jail, where he is being held on weapons charges, for at least another week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Alan Baverman said he will have another hearing next Friday to further consider conditions proposed by the rap star's lawyers that could prompt him to release their client until his trial.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, Jr., was arraigned at Friday's hearing. He entered a plea of innocent to the weapons charges.

Harris was arrested Saturday for allegedly accepting three machine guns and two silencers.

A bodyguard for Harris provided information leading to the arrest in a sting operation last week, authorities said.

Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents alleged they found three other guns in the vehicle Harris was driving, including a loaded weapon under the driver’s seat.

A search warrant for Harris’s home in College Park, Ga., allegedly yielded six more weapons, five of which were loaded.
