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.

"…dat would have happend to anybody." and "Boooooooooooo stop hate/n"

NO, it wouldn't happen to anyone that was thinking straight. And we don't hate, but as a fan, I am very disappointed. He is a rapper/actor so we are going to hear about this sh*t and wonder how many chances he needs before he stops doing stupid things like this.

did anyone else feel like the police were just being really hard on them? when they said the controlled substance was not cocaine, but the CLASS of the drug is in the same as ecastcy. in the begining of the article it says they were pulled over and then they smelled marijuana, so they decided to search more... and besides the fact that it's utterly ignorant to have marijuana classified as so much worse than things that are in end worse that marijuana will ever be,
idk....just me i guess

We as people really need to keep praying for these people. It does not matter who you are anymore. Get on the right track and just do the right thing because tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Our children are looking at everything we do so please stop the stupid stuff and be real. We are just feeding into all this dumb stuff for what? They are no better than anyone else, they are just flesh. When you know better you will do better. Stay Blessed
