After getting arrested with her husband, T.I. , on Wednesday night for possession of a controlled substance, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle took to Twitter to thank fans for the e-support.
“Jus wanted 2say thank u 2every1 dats been leaving encouraging msgs & prayers!” Tiny tweeted on Thursday (September 2). “We love u guys:) going 2bed now! So glad 2b n a nice clean bed.”
Tiny and her new hubby were picked up in Los Angeles after police stopped T.I. (born Clifford Harris Jr.) around 10:30 p.m. for making an illegal U-turn in his Maybach, according to a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. When the officers approached the vehicle, they apparently smelled the scent of marijuana wafting from the car and then searched the passengers and the automobile. Police said they found an unspecified number of pills that “resembled ecstasy.”
T.I. and Tiny were not traveling alone but the Sheriff’s Department spokesperson said the other passengers in the car were not charged with a crime. The duo posted $10,000 bail each and were released early Thursday morning. They are due in court on Friday (September 3).
Other celebs have weighed in on the alleged drug bust as well. 50 Cent suggested that Tiny take the fall for Tip, who was released from prison earlier this year after completing a jail bid stemming from weapons charges.
“Man TI and tiny done got picked up agin for methamphetmines and ecstacy dam man,” 50 tweeted. “Tiny gotta take that charge. Say it was yours, Baby.”
Frequent T.I. collaborator DJ Drama did not directly reference the arrests, but did tweet, “So I wake up to the news …. damn…”
The incident comes just days after T.I. kicked off the week with the #1 movie in the country, “Takers,” a film he worked on as both a star and a producer . In addition, the ATL MC’s latest single, “Pledge Allegiance to the Swag,” surfaced on the Web on Wednesday.
