Big Boi from Outkast


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."

Big Boi must not be too "big" if he needs Viagra.

Big Boi pulls a LiLo... wonder which hanger-on, err, friend will take the fall for him and take a felony rap?

BTW, Viagra isn't illegal people - it's having possession of it without a prescription, which the article said he did not have.

Some f#ckin idiots on this site...have ya'll ever been in a rap/rock star's shoes. These guys (sorry to inform you) get waaay more p#ssy then u'd even imagine or be able to your miserable self. Some times several times a day, & some times with multiple women (hopefully with a bag on)...we're not talking about u lames u bang your middle age wife in one position for 10 minutes & laughing about not needing pills. No one would if they banging who you're banging because its not that important. But when your dealing with exotic,beautiful women,who sometimes come in pairs for these celebs...its a whole other ball game. Dont compare your life to theirs. Ive been a promo tour with a rapper & my dj pal,I see what goes down & how much action goes down. I wouldnt compare at all.

I love how his attorney put a spin on this real quick "A small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage" yeah mofo your luggage was collected and they found contraband in it! I guess the custom agent had a hard on for big boi or better yet he was in a state of being beyond reason and self-control "Definition of ECSTASY" just come out and say how he just wanted to get his freak on.

The reverse onus of proof in drug-possession cases is incompatible with the rule of law and therefore cannot be recognized by any court anywhere. In other words, it is UNIVERSALLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Besides, the economics of the drug trade imply that criminal sanctions are self-defeating unless concentrated on RETAIL SALES. See for details.
