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.

What a bunch of B.S.
Paris Hilton can get caught with cocaine falling out of her bag and gets off without a slap on the wrist and TI gets caught cuz the cops smelled weed coming from the car and they get arrested. Just shows how racisim is still alive in america. This is a injustice... not fair....

I can't believe that T.I. got put in jail for this. I think the police are watching him because he is freshly out of prison. They need to back off.
