New York's Daily News reports that Grammy-winning rapper T.I., who was freed after months in prison on drug charges, was back in federal custody Thursday because of a flap over his use of a luxury bus to report to a halfway house:

Steve Sadow told The Associated Press that the Federal Bureau of Prisons "has moved T.I. to a different facility" because of an issue involving the rapper's 375-mile trip Wednesday from the Arkansas lockup to Atlanta in a gleaming motor coach.

He did not elaborate on the exact nature of the problem federal authorities had, but said it was not drug-related. He said they are trying to resolve the problem.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, traveled with an entourage to check into the halfway house, stepping off the bus clad in a red and blue striped polo shirt and white shirts.

"There appears to be confusion surrounding the method of transportation," Sadow said.

Whatever happened with the bus, it's clear that when the rapper posted to Twitter shortly after his release, "The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!!" and "Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!," he spoke too soon.
