[photogallerylink id=69149 align=left]This past weekend was eventful for veteran rapper Big Boi and newcomer Big Sean, who were both arrested on two different charges.
On Thursday night, Big Sean was arrested in upstate New York and charged with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment, and sex abuse.
These charges come after a woman complained about being sexually assaulted at the Artpark State Park where Big Sean was performing on the Rolling Papers Tour with Wiz Khalifa.
Since then, Big Sean’s lawyer, Scott E. Leemon, has released the following statement denying the charges:
“Last night, recording artists, Sean ‘Big Sean’ Anderson and Willi ‘Sayitainttone’ Hansbro were arrested and then immediately released by the NY State Police in connection with an allegation made by a female who was at their concert in Lewiston, New York. Both men were charged with misdemeanors and they both vehemently deny the allegation. I am confident, that after further investigation, both men will be vindicated.”
Further down south in Miami, Big Boi was arrested on drug charges. Apparently customs and border patrol dogs busted the OutKast member with ecstasy pills, MDMA powder, Viagra, and drug paraphernalia.
According to TMZ, He was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
At the time Big Boi did was vacationing with family and other OutKast member Andre 3000.
