Big Boi from Outkast

ARRESTED FOR DRUG POSSESSION

8/7/2011 11:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Big Boi Arrested
Big Boi, rapper for the popular group Outkast, was arrested in Miami today on charges of drug possession ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department, Mr. Boi (real name Antwan Patton) was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

The controlled substances were listed as ecstasy pills, MDMA powder and Viagra.

According to the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department, all charges are felonies.

Law enforcement sources tell us he was busted by customs and border patrol dogs as he was exiting a cruise ship. We're told Big Boi didn't have a prescription for the Viagra.

He was booked into jail at 1:35 PM ET. He was held on $16,000 bond, but was released this afternoon.

UPDATE: Big Boi's attorney Daniel Kane tells CNN the rapper was traveling with friends when he got busted. Kane says, "A small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage." He adds, "I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated."

Damn Big was about to get his swerve on.
Since the ecstacy was probably aspirin he had to verify and get MDMA Powder to get him in the mood, how and the hell do you get that.
Then he wanted to perform like Andre 3000 so he took the Viagra.
Come on dude get your act together and put out an album please.

You guys are clearly inexperienced and/or just plain dumb. Just because he had Viagra, doesn't mean he needs it to get hard. Ecstasy + Viagra is a common combination. People basically take the two when the want to lose themselves in sexual pleasure all night.

MDMA powder? He must sprinkle a little on his member, step in
front of a mirror to admire himself, only to hear his girl exclaim
"Monster D**k, My A*s!!

Busted for X, MDMA and Viagra? Did he carry a glowstick, too?

A rapper with erectile dysfunction is kind of funny and incredibly sad at the same time. Time for seppuku, Limp Boi!

Just Kidding, Antwan!

Seriously, why should you need a prescription for Viagra - why not make it over the counter. As for the other drugs, he couldn't have had them on him at the cruise ship's point of departure because they have drug sniffing dogs. So where did the ship stop along the route before the end of the trip?

You've got to be pretty stupid to think you can get through customs carrying drugs. Sounds like Big Boi was letting his little boi do the thinking for him.

STOP DEFINING MARIJUANA AS A DRUG, IT'S A HERB, AND GO AFTER THE REAL DRUGS THAT ARE INVADING THE CULTURE. MARIJUANA IS JUST AS WIDELY-USED AS ALCOHOL, SO IF YOU LET ADULTS GROW THEIR OWN WEED IN THEIR OWN HOMES, WITHOUT ANY SELLING OR TRADING INVOLVED, THEN THE ABUNDANCE OF MARIJUANA WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FLOURISH AS A COMMODITY FOR GANGS TO TRADE IN HARD DRUGS AND GUNS. IF MARIJUANA, SO ABUNDANTLY-USED, IS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM THE UNDERGROUND, THEN THAT WILL ONLY FUEL THE GANG CULTURE, WHICH USES THE PROCEEDS FROM MARIJUANA SALES TO PURCHASE GUNS AND CHEMICAL DRUGS. IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!

If you go into a pharmacy in Mexico there is always a lineup of guys from the cruise ships, all waiting to buy Viagra or other 'uplifting' drugs that they sell without prescriptions down there. And they aren't all dried up old farts.
