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."

MDMA prevents blood from reaching your penis. So it is likely that the Viagra was to be combined with the MDMA.

mdma powder is the pure form of an e pill - meaning no come down from the other crap people lace in pills, but at the same time not as strong of a high.. so that is probably why he had the pills as well.. as for the viagra, its just damn hard to get hard when you're on e.. doesnt mean he always takes them.. but **** i don't know. the dude likes to party...

Powder MDMA is called molly, for mol-ecule. It is not really E at all, but is a clean version of the stuff available by prescription in the early 80's. Ecstasy is basicaly maybe "some" mdma if you are lucky, but more likely is cut with meth, caffiene and any number of other crappy things. Take a look at this link. see whats in the rolls you took. will suprise you. I am by no means opposed to taking stuff, I remember a lot of pictures on little square blotter paper and I know I wouldnt want to know :)

Its not an e pill at all. it is pure though, Sass Molly will spin you round harder than any pill out there, and the moonrocks are even better than that. Not a big E guy, but have friends that have been doing it forever and laugh at the idea of taking rolls.you just need to get a hold of some good molly and you will never look back.

people, stop drinking the koolaid of corruption. I work hard to have my peace. Stop ruinning my world with your selfish spirit. I'm not interested in your selfish reckless behavior, a lot of people wish they had had more creature comforts and the people who make the most money are socially screwed up. the powers that be are mad scientist. thousands of drug-free, issue-free creatve people would kill to have a shot at stardom but they are only interested in the damage.

Why are people on here hating? It's obvious Big Boi was gettin it in. If he had a problem with gettin it up, he would have a Rx obviously. Maybe if you had that many women to f*ck, you would need the blue pill but alas, you dont lol. Losers.

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!
