If reports are to be believed rapper T.I stepped in to help police negotiators trying to talk a man out of jumping to his death from a 22-story building in Atlanta today.
It all went down earlier this afternoon — when cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where Ryan Cameron’s Radio Show on V103 is based.
We’re told T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio — and called Ryan Cameron to see if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation.
Ryan Cameron tells us … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video which cops then played for the man on the roof.
We’re told after the man saw T.I.’s video he agreed to step off the ledge … and met T.I. in the lobby, where the two were able to talk things out.
How convenient that Clifford Harris aka T.I aka born idiot was on hand to play the good Samaritan just before his court hearing (scheduled this Friday) following an arrest for drug possession last month in Los Angeles while on probation.
Is he hoping that this move will spare him having to do a 14 month bid behind bars? Is he hoping that this will get him back in to the public’s good books after messing up again?
The entire episode sounds like it was staged. I wouldn’t put anything past these desperate celebrities and their publicity teams.
The foul stench of a well constructed publicity stunt is at present stinking up the place.
