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.

His wife should take the blame. His consequence is a whole lot more with his probation and rap sheet. The rubberman man

No surprise here. It's no wonder the so-called "hip-hop" community is waning fast. This is what happens when you give lots of money to people with no talent and a juvenile delinquent brain.

Record companies should just cut their losses and let these "hip-hoppers" hippety-hop themselves into prison once and for all.

Proof positive that money does not buy happiness. Here you have a jerk with enough expendable cash to buy a Maybach...and he still needs drugs to get by just like some burger flipping brotha living in a rat hole and walking to work.

And...and...is it just me or is his wife like a total fugly?

Dummies. Only squares call is Sizzurp. Down south we call it purple, drank, syrup, or lean.

I don't really give a **** what TI and his wife do,

But can someone please explain to me why any grown man would drink codeine syrup while operating a car?

That's just asking to run over some kid, get arrested for manslaughter, and spend 20ish years in jail.

Guess some people have no concept that the world doesn't revolve around them, and that there are other people in the world who enjoy living and could care less how "pimp" you are, and think their life is worth more than your 10 minute high.

All I got to say is this. What is the difference between what T.I. supposely did and Paris Hilton having Coke in her purse. She didnt have to post bail but T.I. have to post bail.

This has got to be the dumbest couple ever! TI needs a reality check, you do not sit on top of the world and continue to breal the law just because you can sell albums! Tiny needs to be home with her kids and she wouldn't have to worry about getting caught up! Does she ever be home with them? She always chasing after TI. It's a a damn shame that Tiny is trying to promote a young girl's group and they all are surrounded by drugs, guns, sex, and god knows what else.
