T.I. Arrest -- Sippin' on Sizzurp?

9/2/2010 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Take a close look at the photo of T.I. getting arrested ... and focus on the styrofoam cups in the front and back cupholders ... although cops aren't saying which controlled substance they found in the car, there seems to be evidence of Sizzurp ... aka purple drank ... aka codeine syrup.

 -- A form of codeine falls under the class of drugs for which T.I. and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, were arrested.

-- Codeine is the main ingredient in Sizzurp, which is a growing problem in the South.

-- Sizzurp is typically ingested in styrofoam cups ... it's become a "thing" in the hip-hop community.

Cops won't say specifically which drug they found, though our sources say it's the class of drugs that does indeed include the main ingredient for Sizzurp.

Both T.I. and "Tiny" were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.

That is ridiculous, to generalize the a specific community saying that's the thing to do, I don't believe all rocker's use drugs because that would be blatant ignorance. Let their issues be there issues. The police should have stop these picture and video from being used, same on them. IT'S INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY or is that just for some.

I don't know why, but
I'm surprised he would
dare do something so
stupid being on parole.
He's going back and he
has nobody to blame but
himself.

The first time I heard of this drink is when Lil Wayne said, that is his drug of choice...I DO NOT think it is a hip hop thing,it's a dirty south thing
