Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies pulled over the multi-platinum selling rapper and his wife in a Maybach on Sunset Boulevard around 10:18PM. Deputies say they smelled marijuana.

When searching the vehicle cops found a controlled substance. Law enforcement sources tell us the controlled substance was not cocaine, but rather the class of controlled substance that triggered the arrest includes methamphetamines and ecstasy.

The couple just got married on July 30 in Miami, and T.I. -- real name Clifford Harris Jr. -- is on probation after doing seven months in prison on federal weapons charges.

Law enforcement sources say both T.I. and Tameka were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance.
 
We're told T.I. and Tameka are in custody right now. Bail amount is $10,000.

UPDATE: T.I. and Tameka were released around 4:00AM.

I think T.I. really made a fool of himself because as a fan I did watch his interview on Larry King & I took his interview as a way of saying that from that point on he was going to change the way he handle situations , I think being almost 30 years old he should have made a wiser decision about what he did , because he's basically telling the world that it's okay to say something & mean a complete other thing . I think rappers these days should be themselves instead of trying to live up to the profile of what society calls a "rapper" where they MUST do drugs , money has to be everything & sex is a daily thing. I think being the best rapper is being original makes you the best .
