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."

I don't know why T.I is so in love with living with that ghetto hood lifestyle, he had an opportunity to get out the hood but yet he's one of those ignorant blacks that glorifies that lifestyle. I'm saying this because it's true, he just got of prison and he pulls this. It also tells me he doesn't care about his kids, he still smoking weed etc and tiny should be ashamed of herself, she has a 14 year old daughter. I know what they mean when they say money "can't buy you class". All they care about is living that ghetto lifestyles, ignorant blacks like them make me sick, they making their own people look bad.

**** all you mother****ers pissed off at TI for living his own life. You are suckers. TI is a true g, the rest of you are snitches, Why don't we look at the REAL ISSUE. WHICH IS THE LAWS AGAINST MARIJUANA in country! Possessing the herb has again ruined another life, with unessecary cruel punishments, such as confinement, financial obligations, and the slander of talented people on the internet. Prisons are privatly owned companies in America that are highly profitable by locking away medical patients and teenage kids. I believe and anyone with a level head should think about the big picture. I hope in the future we will look back in history at this time as the GREATEST AMERICAN LIE, WHICH IS THE PREJUDICE LIES AGAINST MARIJUANA. AND THE LAWS THAT HAVE RUINED OUR COUNTRY AND FAMILIES.

Marijuana should be legalized. It should be legalized especially those who need it for medical care especially and for depressed people to use wisely. Drug laws in America should be changed so that there is Fairness in Sentencing. Right now the laws are designed to further enslave the Black Man. Most of the people imprisoned right this moment behind the UNFAIR drug laws are black. IT IS WHAT IT IS!
Right now Tiny is not Paris Hilton who does not even have to serve time for COCAINE or Lindsay running around getting into this or that trouble. PARIS -- she gets SPECIAL TREATMENT and on the cover of a magazine getting richer--TINY she faces real time. T. I. and Tiny are still loved in the hood and that is one thing we do not give up on our peeps. It seems simple to say -- It's a Real World Out There. Freedom is a gift. We are lucky to live in the USA. Yet, the rules are steep and Designed to Lock up the Blacks before the would lock up a white-- and Watchin Ya Back gotta be taken seriously.
