Antoine Dodson Busted for Pot Possession

Taylor Hill/Getty Images(HUNTSVILLE, Ala.) -- Internet sensation Antoine Dodson was arrested in Alabama Saturday on charges of marijuana possession and four other misdemeanor offences.

Dodson, 24, was pulled over early Saturday morning in Huntsville, Ala., on speeding charges and was booked at approximately 2:30 a.m. He was charged with misdemeanor possession as well as speeding and failure to appear in court on previous warrants, according to The Huntsville Times.

Dodson was released on bond Sunday, but still faces a year in jail on the charges, the Madison County Sheriff's Department said.

A message posted on Dodson's Twitter account around 11:30 a.m. read: "Let me be the first to tell it!! So just got out of jail off a weak charge. LmaORoTfF!!!!!"

Dodson rose to fame after a local news report featuring his rant directed towards the man who broke into his sister Kelly Dodson's bedroom - with the now-famous phrase "Hide ya wives, hide ya kids!" -- went viral on the Internet.
