Rapper T.I. and wife Tiny arrested on drug possession charges in West Hollywood

Clifford-TI-harris

Rapper and "Takers" actor Clifford "T.I." Harris and his new wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested Wednesday night in West Hollywood on suspicion of felony drug possession, L.A. Now reports.

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. A sheriff's spokeswoman later said the drug allegedly involved may be Ecstasy.

(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.

The TI situation reminds me of the way I feel about Michael Jordan:

I LOVE YU TI TINY GRL HOLD ON TO EM CUZ IM HEADN HOLLYWOOD WAY HEHEHEH

TI, I could be your mother, thats how old I am. My kids watch ATL everytime it comes out on TV. And now I'm hooked.
That comment that is made in the movie about you being "Special", is true. You have a special presence about you.

Now, coming from a mom, who's kids had to endure the trials of a drug addicted father. (Who has since changed his ways, a constant struggle of course.)but with the GRACE OF GOD. can be accomplished.

You set your mind to being a successful rapper and a successful actor. My hat off to you.

Now it is time to become a "Successful PARENT". From what I read your dad was miles away in another state. So you know that yearning, correct.

Well now, you continue to be miles away from your children.

May God help you to overcome whatever it is that agonizes you and may you accomplish the success of being a Wonderful dad. Those kids deserve it and so do you.

Love and prayers to you and your family

Ok, Mr. and Mrs. You guys are old enough to know better. Are you kidding me... TI, with what you just finish dealing with, why would you, not only put yourself in that situation, but your wife as well. if you guy's just had to indulge in that, why not in the privacy of your own home. As big as that home is, there was no reason to take that outside those grounds. You know they waiting for you to slip up again. Why do you keep giving them a reason to come after you?. All the time and energy and money you guy's spend to get where you are, is it really worth it? life is to short. Whatever it is yall are going threw, you need to, get over it, and move on. There are consequences for EVERYTHING!!!!

Both of ya stupid.... cuz for one i wouldn't be going through all of dat... both of yall should go to jail for years

that is crayz ok

I like TI and Tiny, they been through alot to be together but for the life of me I cant understand why they just didnt get a limo, after all its not like they can afford it!!!

marjuana is not a bad thing it is good for your eyes.

I FEEL LIKE EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES..SO YALL SHUDNT CALL DEM STUPID MAYB DEY WASNT THINKIN DEY WAS JUS THINKIN BOUT FUN!!!(ON DEY DAY)
