Antwan "Big Boi" Patton, a.k.a half of rapper duo Outkast, was arrested while deboarding a cruise ship in Miami on Sunday on charges of drug possession after a drug-sniffing dog found pills in his luggage. Ol' Sir Lucious Left Foot shoulda done the royal flush before leaving his cabin, don'tcha think?

TMZ broke the story that a "pat-down revealed 5.7 grams of MDMA in powder form, 3 pills of suspect ecstacy, 9 whole pills of Viagra and 2 [half-pills] of Viagra, and a cigarette roller with suspect marijuana residue," the police report read. MDMA powder is the active ingredient in X, for you budding chemists. The 36-year-old's attorney says Patton was traveling with friends on the ship, and the arrest was a misunderstanding. "A small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage," Daniel Kane said. "I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated."

Antwan was arrested and charged with 3 counts of possession of narcotics and 1 count of possession of drug paraphernalia, and was released later Sunday on $16,000 bail. He apparently didn't have a prescription for the Viagra, but at least know we know why he's called Big Boi.
