Incarcerated rapper T.I.'s wife, Tiny Cottle, will reportedly avoid punishment for drug possession charges dating back to a summer 2010 arrest in Los Angeles.
Charges against Tiny were nixed Thursday (January 6) afternoon.
T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle just scored a major victory -- the drug possession case against her has been dismissed ... TMZ has learned. The L.A. County District Attorney's office tells TMZ the case was dropped because Tiny completed 24 sessions of a certified drug diversion program in Georgia. T.I. and Tameka were pulled over and arrested on Sunset Boulevard back in September. They werebooked for possession of a controlled substance. The D.A. dropped the case against T.I. since he was already headed back to prison ... the arrest alone was enough to violate his federal probation. (TMZ)
Tiny and T.I. were initially arrested in Los Angeles last September.
After getting arrested for possession of what was confirmed to be ecstasy pills earlier today, the married couple was taken to the police station to have these sad-looking pics snapped. The newlyweds, who were pulled over in their Maybach on Wednesday night (Sept. 1) after making an illegal U-turn in West Hollywood, were cuffed after police detected the smell of marijuana from the car. Cops claimed that the arrest was made on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, which sources told TMZwere ecstasy pills. (Rap-Up)
Following the arrest, the couple tested positive for drugs in their body.
Pills found in the car of rapper/actor T.I. and his wife Tameka Cottle have tested positive as a type of Ecstasy, RadarOnline.com has learned, and the case has now been turned over to the District Attorney's office which now must decide what, if any charges will be filed against the couple. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, T.I., who's real name is Clifford Harris, Jr. was arrested Wednesday night, along with his wife, in West Hollywood, California. (Radar Online)
Ex-United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young previously questioned the real reasoning behind the couple being pulled over in Los Angeles last summer.
"I assume that you're innocent until you're proven guilty," Young told the Associated Press in a telephone interview. "If he was driving and smoking marijuana, that is absolutely stupid. But why was he pulled over in the first place? Because he had a Maybach? Because he was black? Because they know who he is and resent his success?" (CBS News)
Although Tiny is hook the off, T.I. is currently serving an 11-month jail sentence for violating probation.
