      When you watch the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Wednesday, you’ll notice that T.I. won’t be there to pick up the couple of awards that he won. On Saturday afternoon, hours before the award show was being taped, T.I. was arrested by federal agents for possession of three unregistered machine guns and two silencers, and possession of firearms by a convicted felon, both felonies. T.I was arrested in the parking lot of an Atlanta Walgreens after he tried to buy the weapons from a cooperating witness with the ATF. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the “cooperating witness” is actually T.I.’s bodyguard who was previously busted by the ATF for buying weapons from an agent.
      After T.I.’s arrest, agents went to his house and found three rifles, two pistols and a revolver in a walk-in closet. Three of the weapons were purchased by the “cooperating witness.”
      Hassan Musaddiq, a cameraman for the Atlanta public access hip-hop show "Severe Entertainment," told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that he saw the entire arrest go down in the parking while he was getting equipment to cover the awards show.
      "I saw the ATF come out of nowhere," Musaddiq said. "They had them all on the ground. At first, I didn’t even realize it was T.I. It was crazy. There was an unmarked black van and then about 10 squad cars came in. I didn’t see T.I. with any weapons but the ATF officers had guns out. It was total drama."
      T.I., who is a convicted felon, may face a hefty prison sentence. He will appear in court today.
