T.I.’s Wife Tiny Charged With Drug Possession
It looks like Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, may be joining her hubby T.I. behind bars as it was just announced that she is facing drug possession charges stemming from the couples' arrest last month for having ecstasy pills in their vehicle. According to TMZ, the Los Angeles District Attorney decided to go forward with drug charges against Cottle, who was a passenger in the car driven by Tip. Following their arrest, drug test revealed that they were both under the influence of the drug.
Although Tip did not face drug charges in the state of California, the Atlanta rapper still received stiff disciplinary action in Atlanta for violating his probation, and was ordered back to jail for 11 months. He is scheduled to begin his sentence November 1, at the same Arkansas prison he was released from in December 2009 stemming from a federal weapons possession charge.
As previously reported the couple was pulled over after making an illegal U-turn on West Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard on September 1. Authorities reportedly smelled marijuana coming from the car, prompting them to search the vehicle at which point both ecstasy pills and codeine were recovered. The newlyweds were taken into custody but were released on $10,000 bond the very next day. They have since returned back to Atlanta, and have largely remained in seclusions, only making spot appearances around the city.
If convicted, Cottle faces up to a year in prison.
