Atlanta Judge Alan Baverman ordered T.I. be released on $3 million bond, but requested that the rapper be placed on house arrest while he awaits trial on weapons charges.

T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, has been in federal custody since he was arrested on October 13 for allegedly attempting to purchase a machine gun and two silencers from his bodyguard.

In accordance with the judge's order, T.I. will be monitored around the clock by a private monitoring service that he must pay for. If convicted, the Grammy winner faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.
