T.I. stops suicide, talks would-be jumper off the ledge
A suicidal man halted his plan to jump when rapper T.I. showed up at an Atlanta building this afternoon.
The AP reports that Officer James Polite says the hip-hop star joined a crowd outside the 22-story building and said he wanted to help.
The man, whose name has not been released, agreed to come down in exchange for a few minutes face-to-face with T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris.
T.I.'s publicist says the Atlanta native heard about the situation on the radio and drove to the building to help.
T.I. has had a pretty rough year himself, spending time in prison on federal weapons charges and recently being arrested on suspicion of drug offenses last month in Los Angeles while on supervised release.
For anyone else battling depression, T.I. may not be on call, but there are people willing to talk at 1-800-SUICIDE.
