Fresh off of our discussion of Ride-or-Die chicks, news broke on Friday that Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, T.I.’s new bride, was charged with one count of misdemeanor drug possession stemming from their September arrest.
According to the court filing by the Los Angeles County D.A., Tiny was charged with possession of MDMA, known on the street as ecstasy. If convicted, she could face up to a year in jail. However, if recent drug arrests by celebrities are any indication, Tiny may get off with a slap on the wrist.
While it is up to the judge to dole out her punishment, a spokesperson for the district attorney’s office told MTV News that a possible option could be to sentence Tiny to outpatient rehab.
On October 25th, the state decided not to charge T.I. with drug possession stemming from the same arrest. Apparently, his 11-month sentence for the violation of his federal parole was one reason the authorities decided to reject his case.
In a twist of irony only Hollywood could script, Tiny will be arraigned today, the same day T.I. is scheduled to turn himself in to authorities to begin serving his sentence for violating the conditions of his parole.
Ever since the news broke about Tiny’s charges, my main question has been, “Why?” Why would the D.A. neglect to charge T.I., but turn around and charge Tiny with the same crime? Call me crazy, but this doesn’t exactly sound fair.
