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."

Why is it stereotypical that rappers driving exclusively nice cars (i.e. Maybach) always get caught with drugs?

Isn't there anything better to do with your money than to use drugs?

Freaks!    

OMG - I flipped the channels past that tiny and toya show and almost threw up! Those have to be the most repulsive, grossest people I've ever seen on TV. Other than people who can't change the channel, I'd love to know who their demographic is. What insane person ever thought someone that hideous should be on TV? I'm gagging at the though of what I saw on that show and what it sounded like.

Prison Institutionalization @ its best    

Just another example of the inadequacies and ineffectiveness of the criminal justice system as an institute for rehabilitation, by which rates of recidivism are ever increasing... and minority groups are justified as being labeled as deviant social outcast. Criminal justice system is nothing more than a maker of its intakes, it does not care about supporting the greater good of mankind and the communities which it argues to serve.

Tiny looks like such a Cow, what is he doing with her, just can't respect the guy for that choice...that and spilling 400k on a ride known for it's interior craftsmanship, then getting said interior in black so you can hardly see it, not smart.

Maybe he does belong in the slammer if he's gonna waste his success on poor choices.
