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."

what a shame, did a show on young people doing drugs and trying to help them when he should have redeem himself first, cause jail did nothing for him, and what kind of mother and wife is she, when she should have told him no about the drugs and encourge him and not just be an enabler for him

WOW JUST WOW... DONT ANYONE SEE WHATS HAPPENING, TI AND TINY LET EGO RUN THEM INTO THE GROUND...
JUST BECAUSE YOUR A RIDE AND DIE CHICK DONT MEAN YOU RIDE TO HELL TOO.
WHAT ABOUT YOUR KIDS., WHAT ABOUT THE MARRIAGE, YOU WAITED FOR, LOOKS LIKE A PUBLICITY STUNT NOW..with ti movie coming out he made extra waves by marrying that lil piggy...
i cannot for the sake of me reason why he didnt just get rid of tiny...other than boring babies she serves no purpose, for him
she is the typical white girl on meth, you for get she mixx with white, so it make since shes a meth head, white girl drug..
and she got him into this junk tooo... ok he is just as responsible, cause he seeems smart when you see him in takers, but he is anything but common sense.
I FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR KIDS..the baby is young. tiny could get some time too.
just depend on defense payed and judge on the bench..
ti uhhhhhh dont think so HE GONE GET HIS THIS TIME
HE GONE DO ANOTHER YEAR BEHIND BARS., SINCE MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE HE GOT A SCRAPE ON THAT LAST CASE.
IF I WAS HIM I WOULD HAVE BEEN DRIVEING IN A LIMO, AND THE REASON THEY WERE IN THEIR OWN CAR IS SO THEY COULD RUN AROUND PARTYING AND PICKIN UP METH ETC...
TOO DRUG HEADS, PROBABLY BOTH NEED REHAB...
IF TINY GETS OFF SHE WILL SURELY HAVE TO SEEK REHAB, CAUSE CHILD SERVICES CAN ALSO STEP IN RIGHT NOW...

He may have screwed himself on this one. He should have a bunch of years for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, not to mention they were machine guns and silencers.. He got a deal that no other person in the history of the judicial system ever got and he might of found a way to mess it up. Unless his wife and the other dude take the charges. Hopefully he can pass a drug test.

Interesting. It looks like she's been cuffed as she is escorted to the backseat of the patrol car but WAIT - abracadabra - she has slipped out of her handcuffs. Now why is it that shes not cuffed - was her rights violated? Did she threaten a lawsuit? She is under arrest for drugs right? Don't think I would be left without cuffs if I were arrested.

ok looking at the arrest photos there were three cups. Meaning three people were in the car. Tiny and TI are know for having threesomes in Atlanta, I live here and everyone knows that. I see a girl in the background getting handcuffed in the photo with TI in the squad car. Who is she? Do the math, exctasy, marijuana and sizzurp.Wow....who is she TMZ?

IT S AMAZING TO ME HOW WE AS HUMAN WISH OTHER NEGATIVE THINGS ON PEOPLE. HOW MANY OF US ARE PERFECT? IF YOU ARE RAISE YOUR HAND AND EXIT STAGE LEFT. HOWEVER, FOR THOSE WHO ARE IMPERFECT REMAIN SITTED AND THANK THE LORD THAT YOU ARE NOT IN THE SAME THAT TI AND TINY HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES IN. I REMEMBERMY PASTOR SAYING THAT THERE ARE CERTAIN ROADS IN WHICH THE LORD WANTS US TO TRAVEL AND ITS UP TO US THE FOLLOW THE PATH THAT HE LEADS US DOWN. SOMETIMES WHEN WE FOLLOW THE WRONG PATH THE LORD WILL STEP RIGHT IN AND TURN WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT FOR BAD INTO SOMETHING GOOD.AND WITH THAT SAID TI AND TINY KEEP YOU HEAD UP AND PRAY TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER THAT HE LEADS YOU IN THE PATH THAT HE HAS SET FOR YOU TO TRAVEL. THANK HIM FOR EVERYDAY THAT HE HAS ALLOWED YOU TO WAKE UP. THANK HIM FOR YOUR FAME AND FORTUNE THANK HIM FOR YOUR CHILDREN AND THANK HIM FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU BOTH HAVE. THEN GET ON YOUR KNEES AND AS HIM FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE DOWN THAT WAS NOT TO HIS LIKINGS. WHATEVER THE OUTCOME OF THIS JUST BE PRAYERFUL THAT HE LEADS YOU DOWN THE PATH THAT HE WANTS YOU TO FOLLOW. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU BECAUSE THERE ARE WAY TO MANY OF OUR BLACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE PRISION SYSTEM.

WHATEVER     

IM SO SICK AND TIRED OF CELEBS THINKING THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT TO DO -

IT SOUNDS STUPID ... BUT I REALLY DON'T RESPECT HIM ANYMORE AS AN ARTIST. I'M OVER ADMIRING FOOLISHNESS AND LIES. JUST IGNORANT TO ME. THE MESSED UP PART ABOUT IT IS, THAT THIER LIVES ARE NOT RUINED OVER A DAMN RECORD. AN AVERAGE PERSON WOULD BE SCREWED. TINY HAS NO CAREER AND LIVES OFF T.I. SO SHE DON'T CARE. IM SURE HER DUMB ASS LOOKS AT IT AS SHE'D RATHER BE ARRESTED WITH HER "HUSBAND" THAN HER BABY DADDY OF 8 YEARS OR WHATEVER IT WAS BEFORE THEY GOT MARRIED.

WHATEVER.

THEY ARE BOTH WACK ... AND T.I NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM CHILDREN LYING ABOUT "HOW TO BE POSITIVE AND MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF" HE CAN'T TELL NOBODY ****. HE AND HIS "WIFE" NEED TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH THEIR TRIBE INSTEAD OF PARTYING AND GET IT TOGETHER.

THIS IS WHY PEOPLE LOVE TO SEE CELEBS MISERABLE AND WHY GOSSIP IS SO POPULAR AND WELCOMED. THEY ACT LIKE THEIR LIVES ARE SO HARD BECAUSE PEOPLE PRY INTO THEIR PERSONAL LIVES. QUIT CRYIN. YOU GET AWAY WITH CRIMES AND DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NOT GETTING CREDIT, A HOME OR A JOB.

CRY ME A RIVER
