Big Boi Avoids Jail Time for Drug Charges

The Rolling Stone Blog

Big Boi will not serve jail time as a result of his arrest on
drug charges in Miami. The Outkast
rapper appeared
in a Miami courtroom
earlier today as prosecutors outlined a deal in which
he will pay $2000 in donations to charities and undergo three months of
mandatory drug testing.

Big Boi was
busted
for possessing ecstasy (MDMA) and a cigarette roller with marijuana
residue, detected by a K-9 dog when he was getting off a cruise ship in August.
The rapper faced two felony charges, but if he remains drug-free through the
testing period, those charges will be
dismissed.
