T.I. has been arrested on drugs charges.

The 'Number One' hitmaker and his singer wife Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle were taken into custody on Wednesday night (01.09.10) after police smelled marijuana coming from their car during a routine traffic stop in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy Mark Pope said: "Deputies smelled a strong odour of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. A narcotics investigation ensued that resulted in the arrests."

He added that the couple were "found to be in possession of a controlled substance."

Bail was set for the star - whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr - and his wife at $10,000 each. Both were released at 4am yesterday and are due in court to answer the charges today.

T.I. - who married Tameka just five weeks ago - remains on probation following a 2008 federal conviction on illegal weapons charges. He spent seven months in prison, followed by 90 days in a halfway house before being released in March this year.

Although the terms of his sentence state that any kind of violation would result in more time behind bars, Deputy Jeff Gordon said that since T.I. was allowed to post bail on the drug charge, it did not appear that his probation from the federal charge would be affected by Wednesday night's arrest.
