'Big Brother' --

2nd Star

Accused in Drug Ring

4/27/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A former "Big Brother Season 9" contestant has just been arrested for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone -- and authorities believe he was in cahoots with another "BB9" housemate ... the guy who won the show.


Matthew McDonald (left) was indicted in federal court in Massachusetts today for allegedly participating in a drug ring run by "Big Brother" Season 9 winner Adam Jasinski (right).  According to the indictment, McDonald was involved in the alleged drug ring from April 2008 to October 2009.

McDonald and Jasinski were allies inside the "Big Brother" house during most of Season 9 -- which ran from February 2008 through April 2008.

As we previously reported, Jasinski was arrested in October 2009 after cops say he used his $500,000 Big Brother winnings to fund a large oxycodone distribution ring.

As for McDonald -- it's the third major criminal charge levied against him this month. Matthew is accused of beating his pregnant girlfriend and then attempting to intimidate her into dropping the charges.

If convicted of the drug charge, McDonald faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

Dear Mattie,



Can't wait to be your cell mate. I'm sure you are going to keep house for us just fine. I expect my backrubs twice a day, and be sure to look and smell pretty for the fellas.



Love, Kiel Bassa

save the streets from snithches    

this whole story is filled with wannabe losers who couldn't survive on the streets. Nothing but idiots who run around thinking they have money, while hitting all boston's hot spots. The only problem is these kids never spend money, live in their parents basement, and get some temp tats from the mall. Wearing their big fake chains and used breitling or rolex watches. The reality is this entire scandal broke open because a certain person was busted up in andover/reading area. The kid, BB , is suspect in many other rat cases. He got caught with over 300 pills in a 100,000 benz, hiding them in his golf bag. Do the math people- start putting the pieces together- One person connects to them all. look into it.

Matt was a real salt of the earth guy, what a great citizen! From the day he walked into that B.B. House he was scanning other female competitors, like a lion surveying his choice of prey.
He's not a guy that I'd like to be on the side of a mountain with.
