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."

When did viagra start being illegal? The drug combination isn't shocking, but Big Boi is dumb as hell. I guess when you get a lil money in your pocket you lose all sense.

The reverse onus of proof in drug-possession cases is incompatible with the rule of law and therefore cannot be accepted by any court in any jurisdiction. Besides, the economics of the drug trade imply that criminal sanctions are self-defeating unless concentrated on RETAIL SALES.

See "The universally unconstitutional war on drugs": http://is.gd/wod3rded .

E is amazing, not addictive. I read the Army is testing MDMA on the miltary to help with depression.
MDMS is just E as well
Viagra? Are you ******* kidding me? I went to my doctor and asked for Viagra, he said yes, and wrote me a presciption. There was no tests, nothing, no questions. You have to have a presicption for this? **** THAT.

16k Bond? Are you ******* kidding me. What a joke. If it was cocaine or Heroin, that was one thing ,but E and Viargra?

**** you COPs and Borderboader patrol and US laws, you should be ******* ashamed of yourselfs.

Viagra is used to have sex while taking E, if you have good MDMA your ish is not working for sure. Mix MDMA and Viagra and have some fun that night...
and the Viagra needs to be in a pill with your name on it other wise it's a charge :)
