T.I. and wife arrested for possession of a controlled substance

Rapper T.I. and Tameka Cottle were busted on drug charges in Hollywood on Wednesday night.
Police arrested rapper T.I. and his wife in California late Wednesday after they were allegedly found in possession of a controlled substance.The couple was arrested during a traffic stop in Los Angeles, according to a police report.
The two were pulled over on Sunset Boulevard after making an illegal U-turn in their Maybach, TMZ says. Deputies "smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle," the Sheriff's Department said in a statement, and the car was searched for drugs.T.I., 29, is still on probation for weapons possession -- he was arrested in 2007 after attempting to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers from a federal agent. He was released from an Arkansas prison to an Atlanta halfway house in December after serving seven months and in March had completed his 366-day sentence. His record includes a litany of other arrests and convictions since 1998.

Tiny and T.I. were married at the end of July in a weekend-long celebration that included three ceremonies and two parties.The Sheriff's Department didn't name the specific drug or drugs allegedly involved, but TMZ had  speculated, based on ..... styrofoam cups seen in pictures of the Maybach during the arrest, that "purple drank" -- a cocktail fueled by codeine syrup -- may have been involved. The site later reported the drug allegedly involved may be Ecstasy, according to law enforcement sources. (A Maybach, incidentally, can retail in the neighborhood of what the president of the United States earns in a year.)
Both have been released on $10,000 bail and are due in court in Beverly Hills at 8:30 a.m. Friday.
