T.I.’s Attorney “Remains Optimistic” About Alleged Drug Charges
T.I. and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris were arrested last night (September 1) in West Hollywood on alleged suspicion of possession of a controlled substance following a traffic stop. XXLMag.com spoke to Tip’s attorney, Dwight L. Thomas, to find out what he knows about the case and the possible legal ramifications the Atlanta rapper faces, considering he’s currently on probation on federal gun charges.
According to Mr. Thomas, he is yet to be made fully aware of details involved with the case. “Without knowing what the basis for the arrest is, what the facts and the circumstances surrounding the arrests are, it is very difficult to know really what your worst-case scenario is,” he explained. “There may be no severity to this matter at all. There may not be any validity to this matter at all. So I think the best thing for us to do is to adequately investigate the circumstances and the facts and remain optimistic that whatever has happened will be favorably resolved.”
TMZ.com reported earlier today that law enforcement officials believe the Grand Hustle boss and his new bride were caught with a small amount of ecstasy pills. “First of all, I don’t know whether in fact he was in possession of any controlled substance,” Thomas said. “Secondly, whatever controlled substance the police officers have seized at that location or at that incident, I haven’t seen any type of lab report or chemical report that verifies or substantiates what that chemical is.”
No official report has been released confirming the drug or drugs T.I. and Tiny are being accused of possessing as-of-yet. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as more details on the case are unveiled. —Jesse Gissen
