Outkast’s Big Boi Settles Drug Case

Rucuss staffOctober 13, 2011

Outkast rapper Big Boi avoided jail time Thursday.

The 36-year old rapper Antwan Patton reached a deal on drug charges he received in August. Patton got three months of drug testing, community service and $2,000 in donations to charities.

Patton appeared in Miami courtroom today where prosecutors outlined the deal. Big Boi faced two felony drug charges, but prosecutors said if he remains drug-free after three months of testing, those charges will be dismissed.

Patton was arrested in August after a K-9 dog alerted official of drugs he was carrying in his bags. The substances included ecstasy, a cigarette roller with marijuana residue and the ecstasy ingredient MDMA.
