'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.

How come this is not a surprise? There seems to be quite a few reality stars in trouble with the law or their families are in some manner of disarray. I very seldom watch reality shows. My opinion is most participants are shallow. Where you have shallow ego driven people you seem to have these other problems.

You're in no mood for idle conversation today -- though of course, you are perfectly civil to all those who deserve it! Your energy levels are too high to be spent on anything that's not mission-critical.

This really shouldn't be too surprising. Unless people on reality television are born with money or have obtained it somehow during their lifetimes (the Kardashians for example), it seems that most reality television "contestants" are lowlives.

As for "Baller," way to attempt to double your money. Prison will give you the ability to live up to your nickname; everybody's gonna want a piece of you. LMFAO You might wantta think about changing it before you go. Just an FYI...

I knew there was something wrong with that guy!!! I loved BB9 and wasn't pleased to see him win 1/2 mil. After he called the autism children "retards", it was pretty clear what kinda guy he was. My guess his work done with the foundation was community service, not out of the goodness of his heart.

Fellow castmate Matty McDonald was the government informant who wore a wire and set up Adam so he could get away with house arrest and rehab for the same charges Adam will get 10 years for.

He was on Oxy when he was on Big Brother. He talked about it with another contestant. He said he was in a really bad car accident and still has glass in his face and takes it for constant pain. On the show he was always all crazy-eyed.

He mentioned on BB that he was involved in an accident and took the oxy's for pain. He must have been doing something inappropriate with them though because Big Brother actually took them away from him. They broadcasted it on air, he was talking to Ryan and someone else (laughing about it) that they took his pills away. I think it had something to do with him giving someone else in teh house an oxy. what a loser. I feel for him though, maybe he got addicted afterward and things spiralled out of control. It can happen. But DAMN - 2000 pills? That's crazy, and not the best investment plan Adam!!!

The bb pre interview worth watching of Adam Baller it shows what a hyperactive dumb @ss he is. Suprised it was oxycodone he was peddling since he has always acted like a cocaine or speed freak.

In this bb clip he's asked to make a video message to himself for when he leaves the BB house. Dumb @ss should have reminded himself not to blow the 500K on becoming a common street thug and junky.

RE: Comment#44

It was Matty who Adam got caught giving pills to in the house and Matty who Adam got caught giving pills to in Boston.

Is "ironic" the right word for how that worked out?

I met Adam at a Reality Vegas Bash about a month ago. He was pretty high and so was his girlfriend. They couldn't keep their hands off of one another. A couple of hours later, the girlfriend was arrested for battery on Adam and both were kicked out of the M Hotel.

This tool was already a convicted drug dealer BEFORE he was cast on Big Brother. No one should be surprised.
