Antwan "Big Boi" Patton was arrested in Miami on Sunday afternoon on drug possession charges.
Patton, half of the platinum-selling, Grammy-winning group Outkast, was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia — all felony charges, according to the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department website.
The 36-year-old was caught by drug-sniffing dogs while getting off a cruise ship.
Patton was carrying Viagra, which he didn’t have a prescription for, Ecstasy pills and MDMA powder, the main ingredient in Ecstasy. 
"While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage," the rapper's attorney Daniel Kane said in a statement. "I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated."

He's being held on a $16,000 bond at the Pre-Trial Detention Center in Miami.
