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.

my 2 cents    

As there are 3 sides to every story; your side, my side, and the TRUTH. Let's all hope for the better for T.I. and his wife. perhaps the substance is not what it is.

I feel bad for TI and Tiny... damn we human, we mess up sometimes. So here is the deal. Tiny since you have no record you need to take the rap.... you may get probation only. TI go to the Health food store (GNC) and get the stuff to clean your system ASAP!.... Yall got mad paper so this could all work out. GOOD Luck!

As we hear so many stories that come out from left and right. We all know there's always 3 sides to every story, your side, my side, and the TRUTH.
Just wondering, what is the real TRUTH to this story?
Perhaps it was a substance that appeared to look like what it was to the police. Let's hope for the best for T.I. and his wife, and not ASSume.

You idiots. Its not just weed he got caught with its ecstasy pills. he just got out of prison he knew his terms when he got out. He isnt anyone special. He commited a crime and so did she, so like everryone who is not famous and doing time. My man ran from the cops with no drugs not weapon and they violated him for 7 momths. O well same thing goes for him. Stop making stupid comments. Yeah i like him music is bomb but hes fake as F88K going on MTV trying to act hard and teach kids to stay in school and off drugs when his sucker a$$ is a loser

It's so amazing how they treat people of color different. Why didn't they take PARIS HILTON TO JAIL AND BOOK HER. OH, HER FATHER HAS MORE MONEY OR SOMETHING IS IT BECAUSE SHE IS WHITE. HER CALL SMELLED THE SAME AND THEY FOUND THE DRUGS ON HER AND IN HER PURSE.

SO T.I. AND HIS RENTED THE CAR THEY WERE IN OR HE WaS RIDING IN A FRIENDS CAR WHO JUST GOT OUT AND MAY HAVE BEEN SMOKING DRUGS.... SMH... SOUNDS LIKE CASE LAW, "2010 HILTON VS THE STATE OF LV". YOUR HONOR AS I SAD HER TO REP T.I..... I WANT TO US CASE 2010 HILTON VS THE STATE OF......
