Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Police arrested rapper T.I. and his wife in California after they were allegedly found in possession of a controlled substance.
The couple was arrested late Wednesday during a traffic stop in Los Angeles, according to a police report.
During the stop, police said, they smelled an odor of marijuana coming from their car.
The arrest isn’t the first for the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Joseph Harris.
In 2008, he was sentenced on charges of unlawfully possessing firearms as a convicted felon. The charges followed an arrest by federal agents a year earlier while T.I. was buying three machine guns in the parking lot of an Atlanta, Georgia, grocery store.
T.I. was released after serving nine months in prison and three months in a halfway house.
“Well, I’m just ready to put the bad things behind me and look forward to the future and, you know, just move forward and evolve — continue to evolve,” he told CNN’s Larry King this year.
T.I. and his wife, Tameka Dianne Cottle, were held on $10,000 bail.
