T.I. Arrested in West Hollywood

Grammy-winning rapper/actor, wife charged with drug possession

Rapper T.I. and his wife were arrested in West Hollywood, California on Wednesday, charged with possession of methamphetamines.

According to the Associated Press, T.I. — whose real name is Clifford Harris — and his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, were pulled over after police smelled marijuana coming from the car.

The couple each posted $10,000 bail and were released at approximately 4:00 a.m., sheriff deputy Luis Castro said.

The arrest comes just five months after the Grammy-winning artist was released from prison. He was convicted of weapons possession, serving seven months federal prison and three months in a Georgia halfway house. T.I. is currently serving three years probation stemming from that conviction.

The 29-year-old has a role in the movie "Takers." Cottle, 36, starred in the BET reality series "The Tiny & Toya Show."

"Right now," T.I. told the AP in July, "it's all about moving forward and just acknowledging the blessings that are here today. … Just moving past the regrets of yesterday — the things that could've been done better."
