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."

What is it with TMZ's obsession with hollywood skanks? These ppl are do nothing losers who'll fade into the sidewalk cracks if you'd stop giving them any kind of publicity. GIVE us stories on A listers not pieces of crap like the above mentioned.

Dame! I can't believe this sh*t why would they do an illegal turn in the first place,that was a stupid move because cops these days will pull your a** over for anything,they don't have nothing better to do like catch the murderers,rapists and all the worst off people out there in this world. But sh*t happens all they can do is learn from the situation and move forward.

I truly hope that TI and wife TINY keep their heads up, beat the bogus charge and ignore all the negative comments. Last week it was FANTASIA this week it's the two of them. All I can say to everyone with the negativity is STOP HATING! TI and TINY, "LET UR HATERS BE UR MOTIVATORS"!!!! Real talk from Baltimore, we love u both!!
