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.

Another article said the police spokeswoman confirmed that they were arrested for pills that "resembled ecstacy" the pills are being tested now. That was the controlled substance.

Trey,

1) Cops get paid pretty well. Anywhere from 200-800k a year, depending on how dangerous their area is.

2) They DID find some drugs in the car. If that's racial profiling, then by all means, we need more of it.

I'm sick of cops being too intimidated to pull over minorities because they're too scared of being labeled racist. A white person runs a red light, they're guaranteed to be pulled over. A Mexican or black does the same thing, in FRONT of a cop, and the cops hesitate.

You can't pull the race card if you've actually broken the law. "I'm sorry officer, I know I have marijuana and codeine in the car, but you can't pull me over because I'm black. You are racist if you pull me over."

If you don't want to be pulled over, don't break the law. That applies to every race equally. Minorities are not exempt.

"TMZ starts ****!! How do you know this is Sizzurp? Police has not charged them with that.. Only with pills.. Maybe they had beer or Sodas, If they had something in those cups those cups would NOT be in those cup holders.."

They were found in posession of codeine syrup. That's why TMZ said it might be sizzurp in the cups.

I do not SUPPORT drug use of at all..MARIJUANA is not a drug so I do say FREE UP THE HERB & LEGALIZE IT..

However, they better get the SAME KIND OF JUSTICE as Paris, Brittany & Lyndsey L!!!

You "pale faces" kill me talking "lock them away for years"...

*ukk that..THE U.S. GOVT IS THE BIGGEST DRUG DEALERS, COKE SNIFFERS, IN THE WORLD!!

The answer is legalize drugs, take the stigma awAY pour $ into rehab for those that want it instead of

PRIVATIZING PRISONS and feeling them UP with non violent criminals on tax payer dollars!!
