T.I.‘s wife, Tameka Cottle, has spoken out on reportedly being arrested last night in Los Angeles, allegedly due to a drug possession.

T.I.’s lawyer, Dwight L. Thomas, has said he is still trying to grasp the full details of the rapper’s arrest.
“Without knowing what the basis for the arrest is, what the facts and the circumstances surrounding the arrests are, it is very difficult to know really what your worst-case scenario is,” he explained. “There may be no severity to this matter at all. There may not be any validity to this matter at all. So I think the best thing for us to do is to adequately investigate the circumstances and the facts and remain optimistic that whatever has happened will be favorably resolved.” (XXL Mag)
Former Atlanta Mayor Andy Young is skeptical over the real reason behind T.I.’s arrest.
“There’s another culture in L.A. that I don’t understand,” Young told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Most people in Los Angeles would wonder why he was stopped. I don’t know why they should have been stopped … When a black man is stopped and not speeding … you call that driving while black.” (All Hip Hop)
Details on the arrest hit the Internet Thursday morning.
Tiny and her new hubby were picked up in Los Angeles after police stopped T.I. (born Clifford Harris Jr.) around 10:30 p.m. for making an illegal U-turn in his Maybach, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. When the officers approached the vehicle, they apparently smelled the scent of marijuana wafting from the car and then searched the passengers and the automobile. Police found an unspecified number of pills that “resembled ecstasy.” T.I. and Tiny were not traveling alone but the Sheriff’s Department spokesperson said the other passengers in the car were not charged with a crime. The duo posted $10,000 bail each and were released early Thursday morning. They are due in court on September 3. (MTV)
