Adam “Baller” Jasinski, the winner of Big Brother 9, was arrested Saturday, October 17, 2009 and was charged with possession of oxycodone with the intent to sell. He could face a 20 years in prison.
According to FOX 25, Adam Jasinski flew to Florida carrying 2,000 pills of oxycodone. After being arrested Saturday, the U.S. District Court charged Jasinski on Tuesday with possession of oxycodone pills with the intent to distribute. He will be held in custody until his next hearing on Thursday.
FOX 25 reports:
Authorities say in court papers that Jasinski had nearly 2,000 oxycodone pills on him when he flew from his home in Delray Beach, Florida to Logan Airport. A Massachusetts man arrested for allegedly dealing drugs earlier this month picked him up at the airport. The two then drove to a strip mall parking lot in North Reading to allegedly complete the deal, but DEA agents busted him there.
Authorities say Jasinski, whose nickname is â€œBaller,â€ flew into Massachusetts with drugs hiding in his pants. Jasinski allegedly confessed that he had been selling thousands of oxycodone pills all along the East Cost over the past several months, and had been funding his enterprise with the $500,000 price he won from the â€œBig Brother Season 9â€ show.
If convicted, Jasinski faces up to 20 years imprisonment and a $1 million fine.
