The BoomBox spoke with a representative for the Los Angeles Sherrif's Department who substantiated the drug claims. "He was found to be in possession of a controlled substance," Officer Nicole Nishida told us. "Pills resembling ecstasy were found [but have] not been confirmed yet." Nishida also stated that both T.I. and Tiny were released from custody early this morning after posting $10,000 bail.
Tip was originally pulled for making an illegal U-turn on Sunset Boulevard Wednesday night. Officers noticed the smell of marijuana in the car prompting them to search the vehicle, a Mercedes Maybach sedan. The couple was taken into custody and booked under federal possession of a controlled substance.
This latest arrest may throw a wrench in Tip's attempts to stay on the straight and narrow following his release last year, from federal prison, stemming from gun possession charges. The 29-year-old is due to appear in the Beverly Hills Municipal court Friday (Sept. 3). If convicted, he may face a year in prison.
At press time T.I.'s lawyer did not respond to a request for an interview.
