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."

To T.I. and Tiny you are both in my prayers. In my opinion God is the only one who can judge you and I know for a fact that if you have kids and you do get a vacation you want to unwind. However think about the police and area they may be in before you decide to unwind while riding. As for everyone who felt the need to judge them here are some words for you " Judge not less ye be judge". Check yourself before you can check someone else. Oh yeah and get a life!

you see life is a bitch and then u die my heart goes out to both of them but what i don't understand is why would you put yourself in that situation knowing they have u under miscrope. im not judgeing anyone but did it take both of you to go down if you wanted to get the guyanja one of u could have stayed home that way the other could have came to bail the next one out instead calling your mom to be shamed with the drug excasty should have done ur own majic i heard about that excasty in a heated situation well glad you both or home and keep ur head up peace to the one that struggling.
