Las Vegas Prosecutors Won’t Pursue Case Against T.I. + Tiny

Multiple women are accusing T.I. and Tiny Harris of various crimes involving drugs, kidnapping and sexual assault dating back several years. Police in Georgia and California are actively investigating the claims, but in Las Vegas, law enforcement decided not to file charges.

“The incident was reported to the LVMPD outside of the statute of limitations for the crime, per Nevada Revised Statute 171.085,” according to the statement. “This information was confirmed with the Clark County District Attorney’s office. Based on this, the case was closed, which is standard procedure for crimes reported outside of the statute.” (8NewsNow)

T.I. + Tiny’s Troubles W/ LAPD Aren’t Over Yet

Tip and Tiny are officially under investigation by Los Angeles police. Attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn, who has been calling out the Harris family in the media, represents nearly a dozen accusers. The LAPD recently confirmed there is an open investigation in their jurisdiction.

The Harrises have vehemently denied any wrongdoing since the accusations first surfaced in late January. However, VH1 halted filming of their reality show T.I. and Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle while the network investigated the women’s claims. In a comment, the couple’s lawyer Steve Sadow claimed they had not been contacted by the LAPD or police in Las Vegas. (The Daily Beast)

T.I. + Tiny Respond To Allegations

The famous duo’s lawyer released a statement last month. Tip and his boo say the allegations from the women, who have not revealed their names, have no truth behind them. The latest claims include drugging, sex trafficking, and rape.

“By hiding behind anonymous allegations, the unnamed accusers effectively render themselves not credible and unworthy of belief. We say: Stop trying to manipulate the press and misuse the justice system, and let the light shine on their identities so we can go about disproving these scurrilous accusations.”

The accusers have come forward with details about what happened.

One of the most jarring claims comes from a woman who details an encounter with the couple in Miami when she was 20 years old. She says that T.I. forced her to swallow a pill and to take a powdered substance, which drugged her. She alleges Tiny then proceeded to engage in sexual intercourse and she could not consent.  Another woman, also 20 at the time, claims she was drugged and raped by T.I. and one of his male friends, again in Miami, in May of 2010. Blackburn says he has received medical records for the victim. The third accuser says she was sex trafficked in Nevada, California and Florida by the couple. (USA Today)

As of right now, 20 women have come forward with accusations against the hip-hop couple.
