Nothing says “This Is Love” like His & Her Mugshots! On Friday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department released matching mugshots for trouble-prone hip-hopster T.I. and his wife — former R&B singer-turned-BET reality star Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
Methinks this qualifies as the tackiest thing I’ve seen since my Uncle Junior started selling tube socks and faux Louis Vuitton bags out the truck of his Ford Focus.
The father of five and his wife of just a month were arrested Wednesday night. during a traffic stop in West Hollywood, Calif. on Sunset Blvd. Officers claimed they “smelled a strong odor of marijuana” coming from the rapper’s car and under further investigation turned up methamphetamines and a substance identified as a “type of ecstasy.”
T.I., 29, and Tiny, 36, were booked on felony possession of a controlled substance. The couple was later released on $10,000 bond.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office say they are currently waiting for the results of the Sheriff’s Department investigation before deciding how to proceed. Whatever California authorities decide, T.I. is facing a mahjuh legal backlash. The Grammy-winner — a former crack dealer — is currently on three years probation, which began in March 2010. He previously served seven months in prison and three months in a halfway house for federal weapons charges.
