Newlyweds rapper/actor T.I. and singer/songwriter Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were reportedly arrested for drug possession in California last night (September 1).
Details on the alleged arrest hit the Internet Thursday (September 2) morning.
Just a month after tying the knot, rapper T.I. and his new bride, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were arrested for alleged possession of a controlled substance in Los Angeles Wednesday night. The pair was pulled over at around 10:30pm in West Hollywood, TMZ reported, adding that deputies said their Maybach smelled of marijuana. T.I., 29, aka Clifford Harris, and Cottle, 35, were being held on $100,000 bail. The arrest could lead to serious ramifications for the "Whatever You Like" rapper, who is on probation after serving seven months of jail time on federal weapons charges. (Celebuzz)
