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."

On the real-the truth is neither one of them have any class. But who says you need class to have money? Most of these so-called rappers have less class than both my pinky fingers. The sad part about it is some of them have kids and see this crap and their young fans do too! True,parents should be their children's role model first and foremost, but many of the kids in this day and age don't have any parenting and they turn to the so-called rappers and want to be like them and mimic their ways. SO SAD. How are black people, ever going to get any place when this is the kind of stuff filling our kids' heads everyday. Murder, guns, dope, sex, clothes, cars, etc. When are we going to get out of this mind frame? At this rate it seems like never. There is more to life than celebrities and their moneyy clothes, drugs,guns, etc. We should be focusing and teaching our kids that there is more to life than that stuff. And what about morals? I guess they are a thing of the past like Tiny's 'old' lips. It looks like she got stung by 20 bees on each lip! I have no respect for T.I. for even thinking that shhh is sexy or pretty. Something don't add up about her lips. That's it! Too much Botox! And since X-scape her ta-ta's have gone under the knife too! Feeling a little self-conscious are we Tiny? Competition got you feeling down? No matter how fine you THINK you are, a man is going to be a man and look no matter what's at home. He may not sex her but in your husband's case he need to. Watch out it may be with a naturally fine, real hair, class having Detroit redbone. B. Don't worry you can have a girt too, when you get locked up! LOL!

First of all,the person that called Tiny,ugly,you need to be ashamed of yourself. What do you look like to other people and besides this is not about who's ugly or cute,grow the heck up! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,and that is T.I. wife,and she should be respected just like any other woman. You have no wisdom or sense. Anyway,as far as the drug charges,they are just allegations right now,until the media relseases all conclusive evidence,i personally will just pray for him and his family. I have nothing negative to say,whatever happens to him is something he has to deal with.
