T.I. skeptical about Atlanta I-85 bridge fire arrests: "Something don't add up"

  /  04.03.2017

Three suspects have been arrested in relation to last Thursday’s massive fire on Atlanta’s I-85 Freeway, and rapper T.I. has some suspicions about the story.

According to reports, 39-year-old suspect Basil Eleby smoked crack before allegedly starting the fire, causing damages that have become problematic for about 250,000 commuters.

“Now I’ve heard some far out sh-t in my day…but this sh-t here though?!?!,” T.I. explained as he took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the report. “In all my experiences wit crack &/or crackheads I ain’t NEVER seen nothing like this sh-t!!! Js in my hood never set anything but da DOPE on fire!!”

The rapper ended his IG rant with hashtags “Only In Atlanta” and “Something Don’t Add Up.”

While two other suspects, Barry Thomas and Sophia Brauer, have been arrested in regards to the blaze as well, Eleby has been charged with first-degree arson and felony criminal damage to property. His bond has been set at $200,000.

The fire was contained the same night and while nobody was injured, the damages to the interstate will take several months to repair, as hundreds of feet on both north and southbound parts of the bridge will need to be replaced.
