T.I. ended up back in federal custody on Thursday (01Sep11) after a conflict over his luxury bus ride to a halfway house.
The rapper - real name Clifford Harris, Jr. - left an Arkansas prison on Wednesday (31Aug11) after serving 10-months of an 11-month sentence for violating probation last year (10).
The Live Your Life hitmaker then rode a deluxe motor coach 375 miles (603 kilometres) to Georgia, where he was due to check into a halfway house.
But federal authorities "moved T.I. to a different facility" over an issue with his bus, according to his lawyer Steve Sadow.
Sadow tells The Associated Press, "There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of transportation", but insists the problem was not drug-related.
A spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Prisons could not comment on the hip-hop star's whereabouts.
