'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.

Come on. 2,000 pills cost only a fraction of $500K. If this is his brain BEFORE drugs.....good thing he got busted. Dumb ass.

I used to love watching Big Brother every summer .... but stopped watching it in 2007 when the producers of the show started rigging it so that the person they wanted to win (some tattooed freak who abused women), would win. Too bad, I miss it.

That is the last year I watched BB after hours and let me tell you, that whole cast was shady. You could hear them talking about what they did in the past and were going to do in the future!! Drugs, was definitely what was on the minds of practically all of them!! BB had to know this was going on. These stupid people know what is going out on the air waves---some you could tell were just bragging, but most were just wanting the $$ to invest in 'their business'. I think Mike Boogie and Dr. Will did ligitmately invest but the others, not so much. I would have rather see them plow through the money partying and traveling than to re-invest in drug dealing Way to go Adam. Baller will be a good name in the pen!

I think it's very clear by now, that most everyone who wants to be on a reality show has some ugly skeletons in their closet, and the worst of intentions. Why has reality tv become so big? It's not the least bit interesting....except for Ty and his housebuilding for people who have gone through H ell and stay in the background. They deserve help.
