The Bed Intruder guy was busted for marijuana possession….
ANTOINE DODSON was the viral video champ of 2010. In case you forgot, he was the guy who ranted on the local news to, quote, “hide ya kids, hide ya wife, and hide ya husbands ’cause they rapin’ everybody out here.”
Well, Antoine made it back into the news early Saturday morning . . . when he was busted in Huntsville, Alabama for marijuana possession.
He was driving his new Mercedes at the time. And yes, we can only assume he bought that Mercedes thanks to the money he’s gotten from TV appearances, t-shirt sales, and sales of the Auto-Tuned song that featured his rant.
A cop pulled him over for speeding and found a, quote, “small bag of marijuana” on him. Antoine has been charged with possession, speeding, not having liability insurance, and failure to appear in court on an old traffic citation.
After he posted a $1,340 bond and got out of jail, Antoine posted on Twitter that he’d been arrested on a, quote, “weak charge.”
His agent took a different approach, and told reporters, quote, “In today’s market, [the arrest] could fuel the fire for more interest . . . Not that it should be promoted, but you have to turn something negative into something positive. ”
Apparently, Antoine was visiting relatives back in Alabama . . . he moved to L.A. in January and has been working on a reality show about his move ever since.
And just for good old times sake….
