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.

SMH sounds like she WANTS him to get locked up again. If my husband jut got out of prison and was on probation I would not want him driving around with anything shady in his car… Especially not a Maybach, you already stand out…. Tip, you are MARRIED, have kids, and a career… And on probation… What the hell were you thinking? Send Tiny’s ass to get it and bring it home if you’re that pressed!

$10 000 bail!!! Thank God I live in South Africa, the cops confiscate your stash and tell you off, it's not worth taxpayers money hauling you to jail for possession.

Guess that stint in prison was to no avail. Must be a cousin of DMX. Just use the Paris Hilton defense, not my car & not my dope! How about "oh I just want to help kids" - blah, blah & more blah! All the money in the world, musically gifted but not an ounce (no pun intended) of common sense. Innocent until proven guilty - you bet, but guilt by association ('er arrest) speaks volumes. Of course we know California loves to go soft on the rich & famous and/or allow them to do community service in their home towns (can you say Chris Brown, anyone?) Young, rich & oh so foolish! Fame, ain't it a bitch?

There's a problem here    

Anybody stupid enough to be doing any illegal substances in public deserves to get their asses busted. This boy thought he was above it all anyhow so I guess karma showed him he waddnt.

Lets see what happens to this woman and then lets see what happens to Paris. I am sure Paris will get off easier even though Nevada is a tougher state and Paris had coke.

T.I is going back to prison when you are on probation the dumbest thing you can do is get caught with drugs. I am no fan of rap but I always liked his music.

Angel, that is an excellent question.
Paris had cocaine and did not go to jail but TI and his wife did for marijuana.
WTF?
