One part of Outkast was arrested today in Miami and charged with one count of paraphernalia possession and three counts of controlled substance possession. 36 year old Antwan Patton aka Big Boi was booked at about 1:30 pm on a $16,000 bond, according to the Florida authorities.
The real juice here is the drugs he had on him, which were found by customs/border patrol dogs. MDMA powder (crushed ectascy) ecstasy tablets AND unprescribed viagra. Whoa. Boi likes to partyyyyy. Apparently while “rolling” with a boner. Ouch.
The contraband was found in his luggage. And his lawyer, Daniel Kane, already issued a statement on his client’s behalf:
“While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage…I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.”
Hmmmm… Hopefully this won’t impact that new Outkast material with Andre 3000 we’ve been hearing about.
