Antwan Andre Patton, better known as Big Boi (half of the hip-hop duo, Outkast), was arrested over the weekend in Miami for drug possession.

According to Miami-Dade County law enforcement, Big Boi was caught with MDMA (or ecstasy powder), ecstasy pills, and viagra during a routine border-patrol search at the Port Miami after getting off of a cruise ship. The artist was later charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of drug paraphernalia – all of which are felonies in the state of Florida.  It is reported that Big Boi does not even have a prescription for the Viagra pills…(yikes).

Big Boi was booked at Miami-Dade County Jail, and then released on $16,000 bail.  His lawyer made the following statement regarding the incident,

“While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage,” attorney Daniel Kane said. “I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.” (CNN)

If found guilty, Big Boi could face up to five years in prison for each criminal charge.  MSDTV will keep you updated on this story…
