According to the Miami-Dade County Corrections and Rehabilitation Department, the one-half of Hip-Hop duo has been charged with one count of drug possession and three counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Big Boi's attorney Daniel Kane has issued a statement regarding the MC's arrest. "While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage," he said through CNN. "I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated."
