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.

This is a sad and an embarrasing situation for all involved. It seems that they were being followed by the police. T.I. will not go back to prison. If he does time for this he has come out of favor. He was caught prior buying several guns on a federal racket. He served 7 months for a 25 to life gig. Now if he actually goes back to prison on a violation that means he fell out of favor with those who had the power to make sure he got the least time.
What is sad is with all that money ignorance, ego, and stupidity is never far away. Now caucasians will read of their arrest and say sterotypical things which in the majority are factually true. You get the ghetto out of the people.

Sizzurp is nothing new, it's been around for years and has been mentioned in songs from years ago. Money can't buy you brains.

Man this is stupid! Why did they get pulled over anyway, talking bout they smelled weed or something, the windows are up! Another case of racial profiling or maybe just some broke ass white boys seen a maybach benz wanting to be them but instead they are just some broke ass white cops trying to make a name for themselves and hope they can get them a show. Dam ***got cops! This is the problem with America we love to see people down facing jail or dead when their doing well for themselves. This is the country of haters that we live in and have to deal with.

I hope they send him back to prison and give him additional time! Stupid but there is a double set of rules - the average person would have to do all time on the gun charges but he received a light sentence - One more reason not to buy anything that he is a part of!!!!!
