'Big Brother' Winner

Arrested for Drug Dealing

10/20/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Adam JasinskiAdam "Baller" Jasinski won "Big Brother" in 2008 -- and now he'll be sharing living space with even more strangers behind bars ... because cops say he used his $500,000 winnings to fund a drug dealing business.

According to FOX 25, Jasinski was busted Saturday night by the DEA with 2,000 oxycodone pills during an attempted drug deal in North Reading, MA. Jasinki was thrown in jail and charged with possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute.

Cops say Jasinski admitted to funding his illegal venture with his $500,000 winnings from the show. He'll remain in police custody until his next hearing on Thursday.

Adam faces up to 20 years in the slammer and a $1 million fine.

UPDATE: Big Brother was definitely watching when Jasinski got busted -- the person he was allegedly trying to sell the pills to was a government witness who was wearing a wire.

Cops say Jasinski pulled a pill-stuffed sock from his pants and handed them over -- and that's when they swooped in for the bust.

The arresting officer also claims Jasinski did not go quietly into custody, accusing the reality star of putting up a struggle before he got Adam into a fresh pair of cuffs.

oxycodone is a pretty mellow drug,,I take some from my wife once in awhile when she isnt looking and chase one with a beer and I forget all about her..makes you feel pretty good...even better if you smoke a little weed after you take one.Its kind of like a tribute to michael jackson and his drug problems..but i do not touch kids,,,

Of all the businesses you could fund with a half a million dollars, drug dealing really doesn't top my list.

Wow..that's horrible. This guy worked for a non-profit while he was on big brother. During the entire season all he talked about was if he won Big Brother all he was going to do with the money to be able to create his own non profit org to help kids out. Talk about a a plan that went wrong.

This isn't the first time he has been busted. He had a record of drug dealing before he even went into the BB house. I saw this coming the minute he won BB.

OMG Baller what were you thinking? This is extremely sad. He looks way thinner too than he was on the show. It is obvious he was caught up in these bad drugs. Oxy's can do bad things to people it's like being on heroine. Seems to be the drug of choice for people in my town (upstate NY) it is really sad watching friends go down from these drugs. I was a huge fan of Baller on Big Brother I even added him on my myspace page. Ugh!!
