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."

Idiot's! But hey! how about these cops get out there and bust some of these illegal aliens that are sucking the system dry and trashing neighborhoods where ever they move. I swear a neighborhood will be looking nice and clean and then here come all the illegals moving in and in no time the neighborhood looks like a 3rd world country.

TI, his wife and Paris Hilton should be forced to a trip down to a border town in Mexico so they can see what their causing by consuming sh*t like this.

They were driving While Under the Influence....meaning they could have had a serious accident. If you're in the car smoking and drinking codeine (or whatever), it hinders your driving ability. Yes--take them off the road.

"The class of the controlled substance that was found includes methamphetamines and ecstasy."

Wow, can you say sensationalized? You couldn't just say "Schedule I drug"?

It's already caused quite a few news reports to claim they were caught with methamphetamine and ecstasy. In actuality it just means they were caught with some type of Schedule I drug, which INCLUDES MARIJUANA. Stop trying to play it like they were probably caught with harder stuff before you have the facts.
