One of T.I.'s neighbors has come forward to defend the rap star after he was arrested trying to enter into the Eagles Landing neighborhood, where he lives in a multi-million dollar mansion. A woman Vernessa Smith has resided in Eagles Landing for 13 years. She believes the security guards need know the residents in the community since this is not the first time such an incident has taken.
"The guards are at the gate, [and] they should be very familiar with T.I. and his family. They had interactions with him on several occasions, and I don't think that's fair at all," Vernessa Smith said.
