T.I. and His Wife -- Handcuffed and Busted

9/2/2010 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: TMZ has learned ... cops originally stopped the Maybach for making an illegal U-turn on Sunset Blvd.

TMZ has obtained photos of rapper T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle in police custody on Sunset Blvd. last night ... after they were each arrested for allegedly possessing a controlled substance.

TI and Wife Arrested

T.I. was placed into a squad car with an unknown male.

"Tiny" was taken to a separate squad car -- both were transported to a local Sheriff's station.

As we first reported, cops pulled over T.I.'s ultra-expensive Maybach on Sunset Blvd around 10:18 PM for a traffic violation and then smelled marijuana. During a subsequent search of the vehicle, cops say they found a controlled substance -- we're told it was not cocaine. The class of the controlled substance that was found includes methamphetamines and ecstasy.

Both were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.



They were released on $10,000 bail.

As we previously reported, T.I. was released from federal prison back in December -- where he served 7 months behind bars for illegally possessing machine guns and silencers.

Law enforcement confirms ... T.I. is still on probation from the gun conviction, which means last night's arrest could qualify as a violation of his probation ... and he could be sent back to prison.

UPDATE: "Tiny" just twittered, "Jus wanted 2say thank u 2every1 dats been leaving encouraging msgs & prayers! We love u guys:-)going 2bed now! So glad 2b n a nice clean bed."

Tiny, you have 3 children. Shame on you for trying so hard to be a "ride or die" chick to your man. Your daughter is 14 now, she will know what is happening to her mom.

Very upset and dissappointed in TMZ. How could you guys allow someone to post a racist comment and just leave it up. Some sad individual named Ken used the "N" word at 6:43a.m. and over three hours later, its stiill up. Way to go TMZ. Now I'm going to Radar Online.

You know...it is really at a point where these so called stars really need to stop this s*it...this undercover life style that the try to lead because they have a liitle bit of money in the bank. TI and Tiny this is a real shame maybe the both of you should re-think how you are really livin. I never liked either one of you both have no talent but since you both were in the public eye that was kinda cool. But now look at the both of you? Its a real shame this is all you 2 are about. Being brought down by some drugs. It don't matter how much you floss yall both dirty. How shamefull and phony you 2 are drugheads this is what you are teaching your kids.
