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."

Greetings, first of all only the Lord knows what happened whether they willingly made a wrong turn in a car worth more than the cops who pulled them over's 401k,and knew they had THAT in the car, or whether the " secret people" are trying to destroy his mission in life by the way of publicity and as M.J. said, "ELECTRIC EYE's"
I was astonished when I heard it at first, but being a gifted artist myself, we as people cant condemn anyone whether they have money or not..
Look at both of their success..Tiny T.V. show..T.I.P./T.I.
Hottest P.A. and just made gargantuan amounts of fetti off a movie..
U think these people like the fact that these "role models to the minoriy" are still shining in these dark days....Selah
P.S..Im not speakin " racially cause im "the minority too" but the fact remains that T.I. and Tiny is still makin major moves...
Hell,they probably was set up for refusing the SHhhhhhh....CUSH

Silencers alone should have a minimum of 10 years cause there made for one thing KILL silently.

I am a fan of TI and Tiny, but i am very disappointed in them both. They were doing good and vindicating themselves. Shame on them for their stupidity. Tiny should be leading him down the right path. A woman has more sense than a man. Instead of her trying to have his back, she need to take the lead. Tiny is a strong woman, she needs to stand up for herself, and the life of her children before she ends up behind bars. I hope they get it together.

I'm really not surprised. Shame on them. They have a teenage daughter, how embarrassing. T.I. stay off talk shows talking about how you have changed your ways. Parents be a role model for your own children.
