Antoine Dodson Arrested for Marijuana Possession
Last year, Antoine Dodson made a name for himself after giving an animated interview regarding an attack on his sister in her home, prompting 'The Bed Intruder Song' to be created. Now the Alabama native is making headlines for breaking the law himself, getting arrested Saturday (April 23) for marijuana possession.
According to TMZ, Dodson was charged with misdemeanor possession upon officers stopping him in his vehicle for speeding at 2:30AM on Saturday. He was also reportedly hit with other minor charges by the Huntsville Police Department.
As of 12PM today, the Madison County Sheriff's Department jail book did not list Dodson as being booked into the jail. His missing name may be due to being arrested and immediately released. However, the tabloid website did post a photo said to be Dodson's mug shot.
The 25-year-old rose to fame in 2010 as a result of his televised rant, which later became a song. The 'Bed Intruder Song,' created by the Gregory Brothers, was sold on iTunes and even garnered a No. 89 position on Billboard's Hot 100 list. An accompanying video scored millions of hits on YouTube as well. Dodson's time in the spotlight earned him more television appearances, including a performance of his unexpected hit at the 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards.
