Rapper T.I. (né Clifford Harris Jr.), 29, and his wife, Tameka Cottle, 36, were arrested last night in L.A. after police detected marijuana coming from their car at a traffic stop in West Hollywood. Authorities subsequently searched T.I.’s car and arrested the couple for possession of a controlled substance. T.I. and Cottle, who were married July 30, posted $10,000 bail and were released this morning.
After reading this on other sites I thought it was going to be a heavy drug charge, not just the possession of marijuana (kids… drugs are bad!). This kind of press is much need, as it probably hleps his credibility to kids buying his records.
The Grammy-winning rapper and sometime actor is still on probation after serving seven months in prison last year for a weapons conviction. Thus, Im surprised that he didnt head straight back to jail after being arrested while on probation.
