Big Boi (Antoine Patton), one-half of the legendary duo Outkast, was arrested earlier today (August 7) in Miami for drug possession.
According to a police report posted by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department, Big Boi was brought into custody after leaving a cruise ship. Border patrol and customs canines discovered Ecstasy pills, MDMA powder, Viagra without a prescription, and undisclosed drug paraphernalia.
Big Boi has been charged with three felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. At press time, he has been released after posting a $16,000 bond.
Last year, Big Boi released his critically acclaimed debut album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. Work on a Outkast reunion album, their first since 2006’s Ildewild, is rumored to be in the works for 2012.
