More details stemming from T.I.'s May arrest for disorderly conduct have emerged. TMZ obtained audio on Thursday (Aug. 30) of Tip's arresting officer clowning him to the security guard working at the Henry County, G.A. gated community following the altercation. 

The captured body cam footage finds the officer realizing that he was dealing with one of the premier figures in all of hip-hop. "He's the rapper? I've never seen him. He thinks his shit don't stink," the officer says with a laugh. "He wants everyone bowing down to him."

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the acting security guard at the time, Euwan James, was fired for his role in handling the situation with Tip. The 37-year-old is being hit with three misdemeanor charges of simple assault, public drunkenness, and disorderly conduct but is unlikely to actually face any sort of jail time.
