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.

WOW........I thought we are all innocent until proven guilty?

Instead of going at him hard you should be asking why they pulled him over and if they smelled marijuana why they did not find any signs of it papers, wraps, residue etc.?

T.I. you are dumb ass! First let me say I'm black so what I'm about to write is not coming from some racist. So here I go; you southern rappers (notice I wrote rappers and not hip hop artist) are modern day minstrels. You all have destroyed rap music which is rhythm and poetry and turned it to crap! Lil Wayne, Luda, and the rest of you talk about sizzerp (a drink with codeine). A southern rapper / DJ died from that and so did Pimp C. You lectured at schools and had a TV show before you were arrested to help the youth and you talked a good game. You were released and were on TV (Larry King) and lectured in schools. Plain and simple you are all ignorant. You’re wealthy but you all have no since of how ignorant you all are truly and you all should be pitied, again you are all minstrels. Now you just jeopardized your family and minstrel career. And you girl she has been in trouble too, your both just plain dumb. Driving around town with drugs you are really dumb!
