Hero for a Day, T.I. Is Now Going Back to Jail

Someone should write a novel about this past week in the life of rapper T.I. Just two days ago, he was celebrated for talking a suicidal man off a roof. Today, he was sent back to prison for 11 months.

A judge found that T.I. had violated his probation by being caught hotboxing a car on the Sunset Strip last month. So, it's back to jail for nearly a year—just months after T.I. finished a nine-month term for gun charges.

So was talking the guy off the top of a 22-story building two days before his court date a vain attempt at winning leniency from the judge? T.I. promised it was all coincidence:

"I didn't know this guy, I didn't wake up in the morning to say, 'Hey, let me find a way to go and save someone's life so I can be looked at favourably come Friday'."

But, really, shouldn't he get a couple days knocked off for this? We should be encouraging this kind of behavior from our soon-to-be incarcerated celebrities. If every time a celebrity went to prison they saved one life beforehand, death would be abolished from our land.

See you in 11 months, T.I.
