'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.

I bet the cast is wondering why they didn't give Ryan the money now.

I hated "Baller" but at least he's going to go to jail for a long, long time.

Lol...maybe that explains why his eyes were always bugging out of his head.To me,selling drugs or anything else,is all about supply and demand--the cornerstone of capitalism,therefore going to jail for 20 years,months,days,hours,minutes or seconds reeks of hypocrocy..but I digress.
I wonder how he'll get along with his new house mates.

Natalie from Oregon should have won the $500,000. She would have put it to better use like funding her artistic talent.

You chose to fund "Drug-Dealing" ??

Why not fund "Flipping" Houses ??

Do you realize how many homes you could have bought, fixed-up & sold for a huge profit by using your winnings ??

You would not even need to use all your winnings before making large profits.

Flipping Houses vs. Drug-Dealing ?? . . . . . Dude, c'mon !!

What are you doing talking to the cops before getting your lawyer ??

Everyone, nowadays, knows to "Lawyer Up" before speaking to the cops.

Now your Jury is going to hear your confession that you gave to the police - There went any reasonable doubt !!
