Just a day after T.I. was released from prison, he was brought right back in!
The reason T.I. was hauled back to prison from his halfway house is that he allegedly misled prison officials into thinking he'd take a low-key mode of transportation from the prison to the halfway house -- and a tricked out tour bus isn't low-key.
Law enforcement sources say -- when a prisoner is incarcerated in a low or medium security prison ... prison officials can allow the inmate to use a private, unescorted mode of transportation to travel from the prison facility to the halfway house.
During the process of approving such a transfer, the prisoner must state specifically what mode of transportation he or she will be using. Sources say T.I. informed prison officials he would be taking some sort of van, but made no mention of the high-end, pimped out tour bus.
Crazy thing is, Tiny -- T.I.'s wife -- says before T.I. got on the tour bus, the prison guards took photos with him in front of bus and wished him luck!
Tiny says, "This is a bunch of bulls**t ... they should have said something before he got on the bus ... T.I. would have politely gotten into a van."
