Attorneys for T.I. filed a motion in federal court requesting that the Atlanta-based rapper be allowed to host Thanksgiving dinner at his Jonesboro home. T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., is currently under house arrest while awaiting trial on federal weapons charges.
The ex-convict was arrested on October 13, when he allegedly tried to purchase machine guns and silencers in a Walgreens parking lot in midtown Atlanta. As a condition of his release, Harris is allowed no more than three approved visitors at a time, with the exception of his girlfriend and children.
Harris is requesting that a judge approve a group of visitors on November 22, between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. The rap star has also asked the judge to allow workers to come and clean his home in preparation for the possible celebration. If approved, Harris will be required to beef up security and pay for additional guards.
