T.I.'s wife charged with drug possession in L.A.

Tameka Cottle accused of carrying the same drug that landed her rapper husband 11 months in federal prison

Prosecutors have charged rapper T.I.'s wife with one count of misdemeanor drug possession stemming from an arrest last month on the Sunset Strip.

Prosecutors charged Tameka Cottle with possession of ecstasy on Friday and she is due in court for an arraignment on Nov. 1 in Beverly Hills. The 35-year-old was arrested along with her husband on Sept. 1 during a traffic stop.

Prosecutors on Monday declined to charge T.I., citing a federal judge's decision to send him to federal prison for 11 months for violating his probation on weapons charges and the small amount of drugs found on him. A charge evaluation sheet said deputies found four ecstasy pills on the Grammy Award winner.

It was not immediately clear whether Cottle had an attorney.
