LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Police say Rapper T.I. and wife Tameka Cottle have been arrested in West Hollywood on drug charges.
Los Angeles sheriff’s deputy Mark Pope says the arrests for possession of a controlled substance came late Wednesday night during a traffic stop, when officers smelled alleged marijuana smoke coming from their vehicle.
He says the 29-year-old T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., and Cottle, a 36-year-old singer, were booked at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station and bail was set at $10,000.
Pope says he’s not sure if they were still being held early Thursday morning.
T.I., who has a key role in the current top box office movie “Takers,” was released from a federal prison in Arkansas in December after serving several months for illegal firearms possession and possessing a gun as a convicted felon.
