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 dont get it, I thought California legalized weed? Why would they get pulled over for "smelling" weed, when that might be legal? So it's legal, but if you smoke you will get harassed and shook down for stronger drugs automatically? What a hypocritical state!!

my 2 cents    

Either the police has a quota as to how many arrest they have to make in order for a promotion and or too many people just don't know any better to never get involved with those doing drugs as Drugs is a NO NO.
