T.I., Wife Arrested in Hollywood on Drug Charge

Peter Gaston

Rapper T.I. -- already on probation after being serving seven months on a weapons conviction in 2009 -- is facing legal trouble again after being arrested in Hollywood last night, along with his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, on possession of a controlled substance charges.

According to TMZ.com, police sources say the substance found in the rapper's lavish Maybach sedan is being tested, and is allegedly a "small amount" of ecstasy.

Cops pulled over the rapper after he made an illegal U-turn on Sunset Boulevard, and smelled marijuana, leading them to search the vehicle. The couple was released around 4 A.M. PST, TMZ says.

The summer had been full of positive moments for T.I. (aka Clifford Harris Jr.), with his July marriage to longtime squeeze Cottle, the debut of his ladies-first video, "Got Your Back," and last week's No. 1 box office debut of Takers, his new movie. He is also scheduled to play this month's Virgin Mobile Freefest in Maryland.
