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."

He's just a stupid sonofabitch, and needs to be thinned from the herd. All the youngsters that looked-up to him, and would love the shot at stardom, as this is the example he sets. Even with the Paris Hilton thing, I expect that out of her, but her boyfriend was of Mr. Vegas power man, Steve Wynn. The boyfriend, another stupid sonofabitch.

Hey ignorant individuals with the negativity, I hope you start feeling better about yourself then you can stop downing others to give yourself a false security to cover your obvious insecurities.

Anyway I agree with the person who commented about us not knowing the whole story. I wish the best for them both, and that they will make wiser decisions in the future. Both the handsome T.I. and the beautiful, down to earth geniune, kind spirited "Tiny"

BEING A GOOD WOMAN TO A MAN MEANS DISABLING BAD BEHAVIOR... Do NOT be an enabler.. Real LOVE is shown when a women steps up and let her man know that he risk messing up his life. TI says Tiny has his "back"... But just because she supports bad behavior does meacn she got his "BACK". Stand as a strong BLACK girlfriend and let ya man know what he could be risking.

This story is so sad to me... Although this is NOT all Tinys fault :-(. I hope you guys get it together.. at least for the kids sake.
