LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Adam Jasinski, who won “Big Brother” in 2008, has been arrested for allegedly dealing drugs – which was reportedly being funded by his winnings from the CBS reality series.
According to Boston’s FOX 25, DEA officers arrested Jasinski on Saturday night during an attempted drug deal in North Reading, Mass. He reportedly had 2,000 oxycodone pills in his possession. He has been charged with possession of oxycodone pills with intent to distribute.
Jasinski, who was known to “Big Brother” fans as “Baller,” allegedly confessed to authorities that he has been selling drugs all along the East Coast for the last several months with the $500,000 he won on the reality competition.
The “Big Brother” champ, who could face 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted, is being held in police custody until a hearing on Thursday.
